Can you Open a Window in repl.it?
So I was thinking of making a quick 2d C++ game using SFML in repl.it to test the capabilities of it (like performance) but to make games with SFML you need to make a window appear. This is totally possible with a normal text-editor/IDE but I was wondering if it was even possible to open a window with repl.it?
it is not possible. Repl has its own graphics system but unfortunately libraries such as SFML is not supported. For example try importing and using
windows.h and you will see
windows.h won't work because repl.it is a UNIX-like environment, not a windows environment. regardless, you still have a valid point: Graphics are pretty hard to get working on repl.it.@realTronsi
@piepiepie45 , In order to get SFML working on Repl.it, you need to download and compile the actual SFML library yourself, and even then it won't work if you don't have the hacker plan.
AFAIK, there are other ways of getting graphics on Repl.it with C/C++, but they are kinda annoying
