Eruta is a futuristic Japanese style RPG under development.

Requirements:
* OS: Linux for now. Windows port is under development. OSX may work too.
* Allegro 5.1.9 or later.
  Earlier versions won't be found by the build script.
* libxml2 (www.xmlsoft.org)
* mruby (latest gitub version). To install globally in /usr/local
  use
  `cd <directory_where_mruby_is> ; make ; sudo bin/install_mruby`
  to compile and install mruby into /usr/local
* For compilation: cmake 2.8.10.2 or later (see vendor directory), make or ninja.
22
* For development: cproto to generate header files.

* For testing and debugging: gdb, ddd, valgrind.
* For map editing: tiled (www.mapeditor.org)
* For some of the tools and continuous testing: Ruby, watchr.

Installation:

You have to make sure that you have all the requirements.  On Linux
distributitions like Ubuntu, make sure that the development packages for all
requirements are installed. Then do on the command line:

cmake . ; make

Or if you want to build with Ninja, use the latest version of cmake and go
cmake -G Ninja . ; ninja
Please note that cmake and the word "Ninja" is case-sensitive!

How to try it:

Run bin/eruta from the project's main directory.
Expect to be underwhelmed for now. :-)

How to develop using the contious testing script:

Use the supplied watchr script like this:
watchr tool/watchr/eruta_watchr.rb

Every time you change a c file or header, the matching
test will be compiled though cmake and make, and
will be run. This does compile all C files of eruta,
so it may be a bit slow at times.

How to generate developer's documentation:
Use naturaldocs.

As you can see, above, Eruta is licenced under a "Sleepycat license", which is
GPL compatible, but much shorter and easier to read. Basically you're allowed
to use the Eruta as you like. However, if you make your own game with Eruta's
sources, you'll have to make the sources of your program freely available and
redistributable as well. If you don't like these terms, contact me for making
different arrangments. :)

Remarks for developers:

195 196
The header files are partially automatically generated using the cproto tool.
The documentation should therefore be written in the C files.
197 198 199 200 201 202 203 204 205 206 207 208 209 210 211 212 213 214 215 216 217 218 219 220 221 222 223 224 225 226 227 228 229 230 231 232 233 234 235 236 237 238 239 240 241 242 243 244 245 246 247 248 249 250 251 252 253 254 255 256 257 258 259 260 261 262 263 264 265 266 267 268 269 270

When a new .c file is needed, use the bin/newmodule tool like this
bin/newmodule bar
and automatically, empty src/bar.c and include/bar.h will be generated.

As for why I use plain C and not, say C++: it's to keep the code simple, tight
and focused, and easy to interface with the Ruby scripts. C is a very simple
language, but it can do anything and it does it fast. And to save time, quite
a bit of the programming will happen on the mruby side.

An overview of the C files andwhat they are about:

Since I try out a lot of things, ther are quite a few unused C fils in
the project. Perhaps I will clean them out some day.. :)
