But I'm not sure our current way of managing projects is good idea. Probably it is better to switch to something like cmake which can generate C::B projects and can handle the differences between platforms and wx versions.
i don't like the idea to add a other build system to create a build system
(other then standard make)
Lets think about this:
A easy to implementable solution, would be to set the non existent global variables with some squirrel script.
1) Check if the variable is there with "UserVariableManager.Exists()"
2) If not set it to some default value
For this is needed:
1) Add function UserVariableManager::SetVariable(wxString name, wxString value) to the sdk code
2) Add UserVariableManager::SetVariable(wxString name, wxString value) to the squirrel binding
3) Have a possibility to run a script at project loading
Point 3 is the "most tricky" part, but it would be useful in other places to.... Beside point 3 this is a easy, non intrusive fast solution and point 3 has also his advantages.
I think this would also not be a problem to implement... One possibility is to add a new tab in the project properties with load script, or to add a script in the "Build script" tab
We can't use a build script (the most easy way) because codeblocks will complain about the missing variables on load time and not at build time...
Disclaimer: I am a fanboy of scriptable things/ programs, they make things a lot easier...
