Download godot-cpp and build it for binding C++ to Godot.

/Users/weiyang/Downloads/ >

git clone --recursive https://github.com/GodotNativeTools/godot-cpp

cd godot-cpp
scons generate_bindings=yes

~/Downloads/godot-cpp > ls bin
libgodot-cpp.osx.debug.64.a

Create a library project in the outside IDE such as Virtual Studio and Qt Creator. Write our custom C++ class to add more functionalities for the Godot node.

Install the tool scons by pip and prepare the file SConstruct to build our project. We need to change a few settings for our demo.

Open a terminal and build the project by scons.

~/godotDir/gdnative_cpp_example> ls
gdNativeGame gdexample

~/godotDir/gdnative_cpp_example> cd gdexample

~/godotDir/gdnative_cpp_example/gdexample> scons platform=osx

We get the new library file in the folder bin\<platform>. Create the Godot native library file and native script file to use our C++ class in Godot editor.

Make the property Reloadable of gdexample.gdnlib true to support to pick up the newly added property by Godot editor automatically.

Finally, we can move the sprite by c++ library.
