OSX Gamepad support

I’ve read elsewhere that gamepad support isn’t yet available in GLFW for OSX. Is there any sort of timeframe for this?

Not at present, no. It will require the input system to be rewritten to use the HID manager, which is perfectly doable, just not… well… done.

Can’t say I’m the best person for the job, but I’d really like to have that done. I’ll do a little research and see how far I can get with it. That is of course unless I’m going to be duplicating someone else’s efforts.

Cool. I don’t think there’s any risk of you doing that at the moment. At least, I don’t know of anyone else working on it. Please come to glfw-dev and/or #glfw if you want to discuss solutions (see the contact page on glfw.sourceforge.net).

Did you make any headway on the joystick HID code for OSX?
