WE HAVE MOVED

We have moved to Gitorious. You can find our new project home at https://gitorious.org/buildgen.

BuildGen

BuildGen is a cross-platform build script generator. It reads simple configuration files and creates an output such and an IDE project or a Makefile.

How do I use BuildGen

A complete tutorial is available under Documentation. The basic building of a project is as follows.

#! /bin/bash

mkdir build      # Create a build directory
cd build         # Move into the build directory
gen ${pathtosrc} # Generate the build scripts
make             # or whatever generator is default

Documentation

Documentation is available on the wiki. Please feel free to add and make corrections. If you feel something is incorrect but are not sure please ask. You might be right.

[UserDocs] for those using BuildGen.
[DevDocs] for those writing BuildGen, libraries or generators.

My favorite question :)

Hasn't this been done before?

Yes, but differently. If you want to know why BuildGen is created and about some of the differences you might want to read [WhyBuildGen]
