Project Layout and File Naming Conventions
The NCCA standard build tool is make, we will use either qmake or cmake to build the Makefiles. The following naming / project conventions are to be used for all files within a project to make location of code and files easier for developers
All files are to start with a capital letter with the first letter of each work being capitlised as well. For example
All C++ source files must have the extention .cpp and all header include files must have the extention .h
All projects should be in the following format
ProjectName /QTProjectFile.pro /CMakeLists.txt /README.md /src/ .cpp files only /include/ .h files only /obj/ .o build files only /doc/ documentation /models/ (models) /shaders/ (shaders) /textures/ (image based textures)
(any other resources should be split here so exe has access to files based from the current directory Additionally if the project builds a library
cmake we use “out of source builds” usually by creating a build directory in the main project directory.
