Board index FlightGear Development Canvas

File not found errors.

Canvas is FlightGear's new fully scriptable 2D drawing system that will allow you to easily create new instruments, HUDs and even GUI dialogs and custom GUI widgets, without having to write C++ code and without having to rebuild FlightGear.

It's all in Tom's fgdata clone (canvas branch) currently, see the canvas wiki page for more info.

it's just the fgdata/canvas branch, so no compilation involved - and you could just as well only download the XML/Nasal files you are interested in - the canvas demo is a simple dialog in $FG_ROOT/gui/dialogs (depends on images stored there, too) - and the "stacked windows" demo is embedded in the menubar.xml file directly.

git add remote thetom git://gitorious.org/~tomprogs/fg/toms-fgdata.git
git fetch thetom
git branch --track canvas thetom/canvas
git checkout canvas
git pull thetom canvas # to update the tracked branch

I've now added a demo to the official master branch which can also be just copied without using git: http://wiki.flightgear.org/Howto:Add_a_ ... -canvas.29

Seems like some bug in gitorious. I've changed the links to the files from my branch, which seem to work - The contents are the same.
