Hefesto is a build system. The main goal in design of this application is to be generic. With Hefesto you can easily build toolsets for widely used compilers.

Under Hefesto's context a "toolset" can be understood as a set of commands that can be used to create something, for example, a toolset for Hefesto C language calls the command "compile" to create the object files and then calls the command "link" to create the binary.

The toolsets are expressed in a particular language.

With a toolset chosen you can build your applications and also you can use the hls (Hefesto's scripting language) to assist in the pre and post-compilation.

This means:
- You can setup your code: editing some headers to fit version, etc.
- You can forge* the project, etc.
- You can run your unit / system tests.
- You can generate your application packages, etc.

*: In the Hefesto's jargon, "forge" something means to create something anywhere.
