yup very strange…but thats how cpp/c works i suppose..u need to “build” things up
This is just a thought (and i am still a n00b infront of cocos team but just thought giving my suggestion):
Java is the language in which Android works and Java has its own jvm which dynamically does the build up process.
The Cocos2dx team has done a great job by getting a port for java in the engine.
But while developing you will not get the usual code hints/completion in eclipse.I think when this thing is made possible then the cocos2dx will be a complete product giving developers a faster process of debuging/writing/arranging their code
For that i think they might need to look(and who knows they might had seen) into capabilities of Code::Blocks which is an excellent and a very light environment for c/cpp files
you might be saying this is what eclipse does but the difference is eclipse was made for/in the Java thing and is very bulky when compared to CB.
Also a new plugin for CB which uses
made for the cocos2dx port might do the trick
NDK/SDK might be a bit complicated to integrate in CB but who knows one might find a way around
