Cocos2d-x is a suite of open-source, cross-platform, game-development tools used by millions of developers all over the world.Project mention: Still have nothing to do with VS Code - WHAT SHOULD I DO WITH IT IN TERMS OF MAKING THINGS THAT ARE RELEVANT TO MAKING AN RPG MAKER MV GAME, NOT JUST EDITING NORMAL TEXT!? + DOES USING VS CODE WITH BASIC THINGS IN GITHUB WORTH IT? | reddit.com/r/RPGMaker | 2021-09-23
Speaking about markdown files on GitHub, I know that there are some repositories that have very stunning README markdown files, such as this one for Cocos2d-x, whcih includes images in conjunction with text. I might do the same for my repository as well. Considering VS Code have an extension for .md files, this might come in handy when I consider using VS Code to contribute to my game projects.
Windows Package Manager CLI (aka winget)Project mention: [Guide] How to build shapez.io from source code (Windows) | reddit.com/r/shapezio | 2021-10-14
Some tools like Git and Node.js can be installed using winget package manager on Windows 11. It is recommended to install yarn with npm on Windows systems (npm i --global yarn). To build textures, Java 8+ of any distribution will work (I'm using Eclipse Temurin, version 11). Wget is not required, because the build script will also fall back to powershell Invoke-WebRequest or certutil method (which is considered malware, but is the only way to download files without third-party applications on old Windows versions) in case cURL fails. The specific error you're getting is related to certificates. This might be caused by Git bash, since it ships own cURL with older certificate bundle. Since default Git installation exposes enough utilities to PATH, it is possible to use powershell in order to clone and build the game.

GraphSCAD "probably" is FOSS and is GPL software, as it uses OpenSCAD API, which is covered by GPL License; same way as all Blender add-ons should be under GPL because they use Blender API, which is also GPL.
