Creating a new project
By far the easiest and quickest way to get a new JUCE project up-and-running is by using the Introjucer's 'new project' wizard.
The best way to get a copy of the Introjucer is to build it from the source - to do so is easy:
- download JUCE, as described on the Installation page
- inside the juce/extras/Introjucer/Builds folder, you'll find ready-made projects for Xcode, Visual Studio, make, etc. These should open and build without any fuss.
The Introjucer allows you to create and maintain a JUCE project from which it will automatically generate projects for Xcode, Visual Studio, etc which you can use to build the project on your target OSes.
To create a new project, just fire up the Introjucer and select the "New Project" menu item. It'll walk you though a few basic options and will create a new project for you.
When your new project is open in the Introjucer, its project info page lets you add or remove target compilers that you want to use (e.g. Visual Studio, Xcode, etc). On the same page there are buttons which will directly launch your native IDE with the auto-generated files ready to compile and run your app!
