What's a forum without some discussion.
So I have a question to all of the more experienced guys here. What are some of your favorite open source, or available code bases do you know of that you consider to be truly high quality, and make it as easy for other programmers to integrate and build code as possible.
I get that the point of handmade is to build from scratch, but often a great way to learn is to dig into other peoples code. For example, looking around at game engines, everything is OOP to a point where most engines don't even bother to mention that.
So I guess, what are the codebases you look to for inspiration about how you make your own projects, and why is it good?
Is there particular things you prefer to see such as Casey being able to build 4coder straight away with a batch file rather than having to mess with yet another Makefilegeneratorninja3000 that you wish other coders would push to do?
