GitBlock
« on: April 13, 2023, 04:54:57 pm »
Hi,

I tried desperately to compile this plugin, but no way, always an error at the end.
I'm looking for this plugin already compiled under windows, gitblock.dll

Thanks for your help

The compiler used to build C::B and the plugin must be the same, so a random dll will not work.

Post here the error you get (in code tags) and a link to the source code.

Hi,

Under windows10
gcc: mingw81_64
I'm using last wxWigdets release 3.2.2.1 compiled with mingw81
GitBlock from here https://github.com/tomolt/GitBlocks
I tried to compilt it using Code::block 20.03, but I did not compile code::block myseft.
Compilation ok, link failed with lot of message such as "C:\Cpp\CodeBlocks\wxWidgets-3.2.2.1\interface\wx\string.h|323|error: 'wxUniChar' does not name a type; did you mean 'wxPutchar'?"

Yes this project file is linux only...

You likely will not be able to compile this CB Plugin.
It is 8 years old; so, unless you wish to use a really old CB or fix this so it builds I think giving up is the correct thing to do.
Note: If you wish to continue; you need to be able to build wxWidgets with the oldest compatible mode on I think that is 2.8.
Then build Code::Blocks using that wxWidgets.
After you get both of those built you can try to build this plugin.

HI,

Thank you for your fast answer, it's getting really complicated, it's really annoying
Is there any way to integrate Git in codeblock?

I used the ToolPlus plugin for some simple commands.

Ok tool+, I'm not very comfortable with this, do you have an example configuration?

I have simply added "Git Gui here" in the Tools menu. Below is for Linux. The same can be done under Windows, but you need an intermediate tiny application to filter out a return value from "git gui" on windows.
https://github.com/arnholm/cpde_utils/blob/master/git_gui_win/main.cpp

For more advanced git commands I use a similar "Terminal Here"

I got GitBlocks to build using wxWidgets 3.2.2.1 with 28 compatible mode; but, I would guess it will not work well

https://github.com/stahta01/GitBlocks/commit/5f90a704b6b54a10afb80b0a4528765f76e53054

Edit: I got it to build and install using wxWidgets 3.2.2.1 with default 3.0 compatibility; but, it crashes when trying to use it.

Workaround patch to get CB to build with wxWidgets 3.2.2.1 with 28 compatible mode.

I compiled it with current trunk and wx3.2.2.1 using the attached project. I did not test the plugin, though.

To remove a warning about "no return value" just edit GitBlocks.cpp so it reads
Code
int GitBlocks::Configure()
{
return 0;
}

Hi,

Thank for your suggestions and help, but on my side I still have too many trouble, could you shared your "gitBlock.dll" file ?

Here you have it, but it will not work on your system if your setup is different from mine:
  - wxWidgets 3.2.2.1
  - C::B r13260
  - MinGW-w64 compiler generating 32-bit targets

Ok thank, I'll try, but file "gitblock.cbplugi" is missing, or there is another way to test it?

You can drop the dll and a zip containing the maniifest in the plugins folder, just mimic whatever is there.

  - C::B r11983
  - MinGW-w64 compiler generating 64-bit targets
