Software News   Software News : FLTK 1.1.6 for AmigaOS 4.0
   posted by m3x on 3-May-2005 20:07:43 (7185 reads)


About FLTK

What does "FLTK" mean?
FLTK was originally designed to be compatible with the Forms Library written for SGI machines. In that library all the functions and structures started with "fl_". This naming was extended to all new methods and widgets in the C++ library, and this prefix was taken as the name of the library. It is almost impossible to search for "FL" on the Internet, due to the fact that it is also the abbreviation for Florida. After much debating and searching for a new name for the toolkit, which was already in use by several people, Bill came up with "FLTK", and even a bogus excuse that it stands for "The Fast Light Tool Kit".

Can I Use it in Commercial Software Products?
Yes, you can. The LGPL allows you to do this, and you do not need to release the source code to your program. You do need to release the source code for any modifications you make to FLTK itself, but we would hope you would send any improvements like these back to us anyways. You do not need to release the source for new widgets or other subclasses you create of the FLTK classes.

FLTK is currently maintained by a small group of developers across the world with a central repository on SourceForge.
FLTK is provided under the terms of the GNU Library Public License, Version 2 with exceptions that allow for static linking.

For more informations: FLTK web site

About the AmigaOS 4.0 version (rc1)

The Amiga version is a WIP but it's almost complete, it offers all the functionality of the official 1.1.6 version, including the standard and plastic scheme.
There are few missing features which will be implemented with next releases:

- OpenGL support
- Drag and Drop
- threads
- custom pointers

There are more than 60 demos available, to show the toolkit capabilities, just download the fltk-1.1.6_rc1_demos.lha archive, unpack in any directory and run Demo from the CLI.
If asked for the /usr, /etc or other directories, just assign then to ram:
Click on the darker gray area to go back one level, while browsing the demos.

The whole package consist of several archives:

- libs, includes and docs
- demos
- FLUID
- source code

A note about the source code: atm sources and the building enviroment need to be cleaned up, source code will be available on OS4Depot in a few days/weeks. In the meantime, anyone interested could contact me at glquake@libero.it to obtain a copy of the sources.

Screenshots: HERE and HERE

From OS4Depot

Wow.

Gonna test it NOW.

Great work, thanks.

Edit, after watching the screenshots. Perhaps we can amigaize it later on to use
native objects?, or atleast make them look native.

Hopefully the removal of the window-based menu will be top of the agenda.

@ssolie
Makes you think doesn't it? Come on, what are you working on Massimiliano?

This is AWESOME. This helps the porting of a lot of programs. For example Glasgow which is a FLTK rewrite of the paint program cinepaint...

That's easy... check out the sponsoring web site: www.easysw.com.

The most obvious: ESP PRINT PRO (appears to use FLTK front-end)

Second guess and hopefully more likely: CUPS (not sure about front-end)




Cheers!

Wow! The windows look sucks, but the macosX look is sweet, I guess it's up to the user. =) Nice stuff!
It would kick ass if that paint program was ported!

The site says it's Cinepaint, but some of the screenshots are called gimpXXXX.xxx .... is this a version of GIMP? GIMP is quite hard to port to AOS isn't it? If not, I guess we would have seen it years ago? Or, does this GUI kit change all that? Was the tough part the GUI? .... Many questions today. :)

That Cinepaint/Glasgow looks nice. Someone could give a compile spin for them?

@ssolie

There are a lot of applications out there, waiting to be ported to AmigaOS
Just take a look at the Apllications link: http://www.fltk.org/links.php?LC+P22+Q

More, it could help porting other apps, even if those don't directly use FLTK, for example OO and Mozilla (I'm not saying that's possible, only it could help...)

Really great news!

But I tried it on my AmigaOne and all programs are crashing while opening layers.library V51. I'm no beta-tester and I only have V50.2.
Seems to be only interresting for beta-testers for now?
