Nintendo Switch homebrew project generator

Project description

Project generator for Nintendo Switch homebrews. A work in progress.


Install from PyPi using pip, a package manager for Python.

$ pip install nxstart

Don’t have pip installed? Try installing it, by running this from the command line:

$ curl | python

Or, you can download the source code for nxstart and then run:

$ python install

You may need to run the above commands with sudo.

Getting Started

To create a C/C++ libnx project simply run nxstart cpp. It will ask for a project name, author name and if you are using CLion (IDE by Jetbrains). If you say yes to CLion, CMakeLists.txt will be included.

The following project structure will be created:

   CMakeLists.txt  // Only if you use CLion



       main.cpp    // Your main application file

To skip the prompts, provide the necessary flags. For example:

$ nxstart -n "My new project" -a "John Doe" cpp --clion

Or if you don’t use CLion:

$ nxstart -n "My new project" -a "John Doe" cpp --no-clion

Support for PyNX and BrewJS projects will be added soon.
