Description

Hello everybody!

I have great news: today we have one more possibility of installation on Windows with MSYS2.

The new wt package is available in a mingw32 and mingw64 prebuilt binary package. I am the maintainer of the package.

I think it would be a good idea to create a new wiki page like Installing Wt on ArchLinux because the same package manager is used.

And a little about the sad. My next common problem is that exported CMake's targets have dependencies with absolute paths, which makes these packages not portable.

But the examples are installed and working. For example, just type:

${MINGW_PREFIX}/lib/Wt/examples/widgetgallery/widgetgallery

to launch Wt Widget Gallery.

Hi Konstantin,

That's great :)

I believe you can create the Wiki page yourself, if not please post the exact content in this issue and I will create it for you.

Best regards,
Wim.

I have a desire to create the page myself, but it seems that I do not have permission to do so. I'm looking for some link or button to create a new page, but I can't find it. Can you help me get these rights?
