And now you can forget everything you know about Objective-C programming, because there is GNUstep. While not entirely true, this section will explain why I. This tutorial introduces you to the GNUstep make package; this package allows you to easily create and manage portable GNUstep projects. It is probably the. Eventually, we’ll want to go a bit further than this, compiling and testing Objective- C on Windows and I’m looking at GNUStep or using Xcode on.

How to get started using GNUStep, because it is not immediately obvious, and we appologize for that.

GNUstep development tools : a basic tutorial

The aim of this manual is to introduce you to the Objective-C language and the GNUstep development environment, in particular the Base library.

The manual is organised to give you a tutorial introduction to the language and APIs, by using examples whenever possible, rather than providing a lengthy abstract description.

While Objective-C is not a difficult language to learn or use, some of the terms may be unfamiliar, especially to those that have not programmed using an object-oriented programming language before. Whenever possible, concepts will be explained in simple terms rather than in more advanced programming terms, and comparisons to other languages will be used to aid in illustration.


See a define, but don’t know what it’s for, you are not alone. See this article for a reference to various macros, or otherwise unusual language extensions that tutoral may see when reading the GNUStep Code.

This tutorial will introduce you to the AppKit classes and how to use Gorm to create graphical interfaces.

The Makefile package is a system of make commands that is designed to encapsulate all the complex details of building and installing various types of projects from libraries to applications to documentation. This frees the developer to focus on the details of their particular project.

Only a fairly simple main makefile need to be written which specifies the type of project and files involved in the project.

GNUstep Tutorial

This isn’t really an article but rather a collection of small “codified guides” for the pragmatic programmer who wants to explore GNUstep by looking at and messing around with example code.

Get the gnustep-examples package from here. Writing code that will compile and then run on different platforms can be surprisingly easy. This guide describes some straight-forward steps to take to make your program easy to port to new platforms.

A regular issue that programmers face is storing structured configuration information, and reading it back. GNUstep has a standard mechanism that can be used gnusteo this task, amongst others: Contributing to the core libraries is what everyone loves you for the most Follow the link above to see how.

When you read the information on Contributing to GNUstep core librariesplease keep in mind that while it was written primarily form the point of view of contributing code to the gnustep-base library, the principles all apply to the gnustep-gui library and other library code too.


GNUstep includes several sophisticated development tools. See his blog for the latest news on GORM. There are several introductory tutorials for using tutorjal development tools.

GNUstep development tools : a basic tutorial

Gnnustep first tutorial by Pierre-Yves Rivaille is a classic demonstrating the process used to create the ubiquitous currency converter application. A second tutorial by Yen-Ju Chen is somewhat more in-depth and extensive.

One of the most common use-patterns of applications on modern platforms is that of document-based applications applications which can have several active user-controlled contexts.

Some familar examples might be a word processor where the user may have multiple document windows concurrently, or a web browser which allows a user to have a number of different browser windows open at the futorial time.
