Things are a-moving!

This past couple of days have been interesting.

Yesterday I started setting up my streaming tools. My last contact with Twitch as a provider was right after launch, so it’s nice to see tools like OBS making everyone’s life easier. I had a second screen in the room that’s been unused for months so I went and bought an HDMI cable to get a double monitor environment for better coding.

So without further ado, I started streaming my initial project setup. My objective for today was getting from a fresh Android Studio install to having something on a screen and I must say it’s been a bit of a struggle but finally successful.

After some intense tinkering with Gradle and Android Studio I’ve been able to kickstart a prep project in Github that includes libgdx and artemis-odb running for windows and android on a click’s distance. I’ve also setup my fave color scheme (a heavily tweaked Vibrant Ink), a code formatter leveraging Android’s best practices, and an array of key bindings for faster development.

The guys in the stream were curious about my first external dependency, Project Lombok. PL is a nice library sitting in your compiler’s annotator that saves you hours of writing boilerplate code for POJOs. Using it is “free”, given that is not a dependency to include in your app, just an annotation tool.

To stay within the compo’s rules here’s a link to the repo: https://github.com/pakoito/ludumdare30
