What GUI or framework should I use for both 2D and 3D applications? I'd like to use C++ as much as possible versus other pseudo languages such as Objective C. I'm confused so if this question makes no sense, just please let me know.

  • I want to try something more rather than Terminal (command line) app. – Shoe Feb 24 '12 at 10:26

    This question doesn't make much sense. And I think it's off topic here. You should try Stack Overflow. – Eimantas Feb 24 '12 at 11:22
  • Questions about programming, development, and listing your apps on the App Store are off topic for Ask Different. – Daniel Feb 24 '12 at 15:18
  • I'm also having trouble understanding this. Are you looking for an IDE, or a framework for creating GUIs for your apps? The first option would be on topic here, but the second is off topic (programming isn't on topic here). If your question is a software recommendation for an IDE, feel free to edit for clarity and flag this so we can reopen it for you. Please take a look at the FAQs for more info. Thanks. – Nathan Greenstein Feb 24 '12 at 15:20

You can use Xcode for standard C++ programs. You can also use it with OpenGL.

You can also use Eclipse for C++. Here's how to setup OpenGL in Eclipse CDT for Mac.
