In Detail

There are a number of frameworks available for developing cross-platform applications. JUCE achieves this with a combination of consistency, ease-of-use, and breadth of functionality. JUCE is a C++ toolkit for building cross-platform applications on PC, Mac, Linux, iOS, and Android. It encourages you to write consistent code and is particularly good for complex, customized GUIs and audio/midi processing; it also includes a vast range of classes to help with all your day-to-day programming tasks.

Getting Started with JUCE is a practical, hands-on guide to developing applications using JUCE which will help you get started with many of the core aspects of the JUCE library. The book guides you through the installation of JUCE and covers the structure of the source code tree including some of the useful tools available for creating JUCE projects.

Getting Started with JUCE will guide you through how to use the JUCE library, from the installation of basic tools to developing examples using many of its classes. It will take you through a series of practical examples that show you how to create user interfaces, illustrating the key features.

You will also learn how to deal with files, text strings, and other fundamental data using the JUCE library. In particular, you will learn how to create user interfaces both using code and using the Introjucer tool to layout and configure user interface functionality. You will also manipulate image and audio data and learn how to read and write common media file formats. With this book, you will learn everything you need to know to understand some of the additional helpful utilities offered by JUCE and how to use the JUCE documentation to get started with such classes.


This book is a fast-paced, practical guide full of step-by-step examples which are easy to follow and implement.

Who this book is for

This book is for programmers with a basic grasp of C++. The examples start at a basic level, making few assumptions beyond fundamental C++ concepts. Those without any experience with C++ should be able to follow and construct the examples, although you may need further support to understand the fundamental concepts.

      Comments about oreilly Getting Started with JUCE:

      This book is for you if you have some familiarity with C++, and are looking for a robust and easy to understand way of developing cross platform applications on a Mac or PC.

      The JUCE framework has a multitude of applications, and this book takes you right from starting a JUCE project and building user interfaces, through to manipulating images and audio sample playback, and much more besides.

      In each section, example code is provided and clearly explained, and the conventions followed when programming with JUCE are all explained at the beginning of the book.

      As the book states, a basic grasp of C++ is recommended, though makes few assumptions beyond this.

      Overall, I would recommend this book to anyone wanting to learn to use JUCE, in a way that is not intimidating!
