OpenFOAM and KDevelop
 
Hello,

I'm new user of OpenFOAM. I've installed KDevelop (4.3.5) and I will use it for making changes, running and screening, .. in the OF. The problem is with the compiler.. I can't say the KDevelop to use wmake instead of make. I've tried this one

but without succes. (There is no Build options). Can anyone help me? Thanks.

Greetings Majkl,

I've never used KDevelop (as far as I can remember), so the closest I can suggest is this: Howto Use OpenFOAM with Eclipse

edit: wait, here's another one that should be better:Howto Use OpenFOAM with Kdevelop4

Good luck!

Well, I tried the link above feew weeks ago but I couldn't find the possibility to change the compiler from make to wmake.

Now, I'm using eclipse. Thanks for advice.

Hello Bruno,

I've returned to the KDevelop (ver. 4.2.3) because of some constrain in Eclipse.


I've found very good description of usage KDevelop with OpenFOAM:
http://dealii.sourceforge.net/index.php/Kdevelop


My problem with the compiler solved:
Menu -> Project -> Open Configuration -> Item Make executable - I put "wmake".


Best regards,
Michal

KDevelop4 and OpenFOAM
 
hi,

I installed and configured KDevelop as described here

http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/Ho...with_Kdevelop4

Unfortunately when building the main of the multiphaseEulerFoam solver I only get the error

Quote:

wmake error: environment variable $WM_OPTIONS not set
Does someone know how to fix this problem?

greetings

Greetings maybee,

I've moved your post to this thread, since it's the exact same topic ;)
In addition, have a look into post #4: http://www.cfd-online.com/Forums/ope...tml#post366990

Best regards,
Bruno

Hi,

I have followed the tutorials mentioned on this thread but I can't yet get KDevelop to build the project using wmake.

Aparently, majkl suggestion:

doesn't work anymore on KDevelop 4.6.0. The only itens I see are "Project Filter" and "Custom BuildSystem".

The project can be built successfully by running "wmake".

I loaded it on KDevelop, went to Project > Open Configuration, item Custom BuildSystem and fill in the fields:

Build Configuration: wmake
Build Directory: <base_dir>
Action: Build
Enable: Yes
Executable: /home/thomas/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.3.1/wmake/wmake
Arguments: [blank]
Environment: default

However, when I press the button "Build", nothing happens: no compilation, no warnings, no errors, nothing at all.

Am I missing something? Is KDevelop working for you?

Best regards,

Oliveira

Quick answer: Try launching KDevelop from the command line, namely one where OpenFOAM is working.

t.oliveira May 21, 2015 15:11

Thank you. If I remember correctly, your suggestion worked. However, I faced other problems and limitations. Finally, I turned to Qt Creator: https://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/H...with_QtCreator

Sorry for the late reply. I didn't get if you ask for a comparison about
- (using KDevelop for OpenFOAM) vs (using eclipse for OpenFOAM)
or
- (using KDevelop or eclipse OpenFOAM) vs (not using an IDE for OpenFOAM).

General doubt
 
Hi, I will start developing and programming in OpenFOAM. Do the experienced guys recommend or not to use some IDE like Eclipse to do it? What do you recommend me to use as development tool to make life easier?

Thanks,

Lisandro

t.oliveira June 3, 2015 19:02

I always recommend using an IDE for programming, but I am not sufficiently experienced in OpenFOAM to know if it would be an exception to this general recommendation. Since my first contact with it, I opted to use an IDE.
