There is no runSofa in v18.06. How can I run my scenes?
I’m running Sofa v18.06. If you compile the core of sofa successfully, you should have
runSofa binary in the bin directory as usual. Isn’t that the case?
There is two possible ways to use SOFA:
git clone -b v18.06 https://github.com/sofa-framework/sofa.git, configure (CMake) and compile (with your desired compiler gcc, clang ..) the code. After compilation, you will have an executable runSofa generated. Everything is detailed in the doc
Maybe this is a simple question,
What are the differences between the binary version and the build version?
Is the binary simpler version if the build one? and why they have different sizes ? (binary is less than 1GB while the build one more than 10GB?
Binary version has nearly the same features as your own build version if you did not enable plugins. You can find the precise configuration of the binary version in https://github.com/sofa-framework/sofa/blob/master/package.cmake
As you can see, binary version does not contain tests, tutorials and Modeler application.
The big difference in size is also due to the fact that a build version contains all object files (results from compilation). Try to run
make install and see the difference!
Hope that helps,
Thank you Guillaume for the explanation.
So I can work with binary version without any problem. Because I have problems with build version in Windows OS.
Also, how can we add more features and plugins to the binary version?
Unfortunately we do not yet provide binary plugins to add easily to your binary SOFA. It’s still a work in progress.
To add plugins to your binary SOFA, you will have to build those plugins yourself. Depending on how the plugin has been programmed, you may need to build it with SOFA sources (which will make a complete SOFA build and thus make your binary SOFA useless).
