Tools for openFrameworks

There are lots of people contributing to openFrameworks. This is a list of third-party tools, that support or simplify things while developing with it. Feel free to drop me a line on twitter, if I missed something. I'll try to update this list now and then.

OFPlugin for Xcode

OpenFrameworks plugin for Xcode that adds addons to your project. Compatible with Xcode 5 and 6 on OS X 10.8+.

ofx is a commandline tool/packet manager written in python, that allows the installation of addons directly from ofxAddons. It leverages git to download and update the addons.


GAmuza is a Hybrid Live OF Sketching IDE, for interactive design developing, live audiovisual performance and generative art teaching.

GAmuza is available for Linux and Mac OS X.


ofxAddons is a directory of extensions and libraries for the OpenFrameworks creative coding toolkit. Compiled fresh from Github daily.

In addition to the website, ofxAddons also provides a less documented API to access their listed addons as json feed.
