Starting with version 2.1.0, OpenFLUID provides its own development environment named OpenFLUID-DevStudio.
This environment is automatically installed with OpenFLUID versions 2.1.0 and later. It provides a complete graphical environment for easily develop and build simulators, observers and builder-extensions.
From now, the DevStudio environment is the recommended environment.

However, to be fully functional this environment relies on external tools:

  • CMake for configuration of builds
  • Gcc as the C++/C/Fortran compiler
  • LaTeX for automatic documentation (optional)

Following the OpenFLUID installation instructions, these tools are installed by default for Linux and MacOS users, but require additional install operations for Windows users.
