To build the Rivendell Web C API client library for Windows using
the MingW32 cross-compiler environment, proceed as follows:
1) Ensure that the necessary MingW32 packages are installed. On RHEL-7,
this can be accomplished with the following command (as 'root'):
*** snip snip ***
yum install mingw32-pkg-config mingw32-headers mingw-binutils-generic mingw32-libtiff mingw32-qt mingw32-sqlite-static mingw32-qt-static mingw32-pixman mingw32-gettext mingw32-libogg mingw32-openssl mingw32-libmad mingw-filesystem-base mingw32-crt mingw32-zlib mingw32-libjpeg-turbo mingw32-expat mingw32-qt-qmake mingw32-binutils mingw32-gcc-c++ mingw32-dbus mingw32-sqlite mingw32-zlib-static mingw32-libtiff-static mingw32-libpng-static mingw32-libjpeg-turbo-static mingw32-bzip2 mingw32-fontconfig mingw32-win-iconv mingw32-termcap mingw32-glib2 mingw32-cairo-static mingw32-libsamplerate mingw32-libvorbis mingw32-libltdl mingw32-libssh2 mingw32-curl mingw32-filesystem mingw32-winpthreads mingw32-cpp mingw32-gcc mingw32-libpng mingw32-dbus-static mingw32-winpthreads-static mingw32-freetype mingw32-libffi mingw32-cairo mingw32-libsndfile mingw32-opus mingw32-libidn mingw32-nsis
*** snip snip ***
2) Define the following variables in your build environment:
export MINGW32_SYS_ROOT=/usr/i686-w64-mingw32/sys-root/mingw
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=$MINGW32_SYS_ROOT/lib/pkgconfig
export CC=i686-w64-mingw32-gcc
export CXX=i686-w64-mingw32-g++
export WINDRES=i686-w64-mingw32-windres
export RANLIB=i686-w64-mingw32-gcc-ranlib
3) cd to 'apis/rivwebcapi/' in the Rivendell sources and do:
./configure --prefix=$MINGW32_SYS_ROOT --host=i686-w64-mingw32
make install (as root)

- Prequesites Required - You must have the compiled library for libCurl
and ExPat. You need to point at these when building rivwebcapi. My libraries
were at c:\Project\
Follow these steps for building:
1) Create a Directory (I used c:\Project\rivwebcapi).
2) Copy the rivwebcapi directory (found in rivendell/apis) to that directory.
This means that the,,etc. and other files will be at
the top folowed by the other directories (test, rivwebcapi).
3) Start Visual Studio
4) Click 'File->New Project' and create a project with the name 'rivwebcapi'.
Its location should be where you copied everything (my example
'c:\Project\rivwebcapi'). This should create a 'rivwebcapi.sln' file.
5) In the Solution Explorer - click 'source files'. Right click and click
'Add->Existing Item'. Then highlight all of the source files that you are
there (*.c,*.h only). Click 'OK'.
6) Highlight 'rivwebcapi' - and right click - choose the bottom choice
'Properties->Configuration Properties->General->Configuration Type'.
The type should be 'Static library (.lib)'
- C/C++ General
Additional Include Directories:
Add C:\Project\curl-7.46.0\include.
- C/C++ - General
Warning Level: Warning Level3
Treat Warning as Errors: No (/WX-)
SDL Checks: blank (I actually removed what was there)
7) Click 'OK' to close Properties
8) Build Solution
Ensure that you are building Under 'Release - Win32' (Top drop downs)
You will see a bunch of warnings - but it "should" build anyway.
Last line of output is where the library was built. for me it was:
Use the directory where the static library was built in your application which
needs to use rivwebcapi. For me that was 'c:\Project\rivwebcapi\'
