Barabash, a build scripting framework.

Project Description
Barabash - A build scripting framework

:Last updated: |today|


Barabash is a build scripting framework.
It takes some concepts from `GNU make <>`_,
`CMake <>`_ and `SCons <>`_.

Fundamental assumptions:

* dependencies like in *GNU make*
* coding recipies as Bash scripts as in *GNU make* but also as Python functions as in *SCons*
* Bash recipies behave as regular scripts in contrary to *GNU make*, i.e. no more line continuations with ``\``
* auto-clean, all explicitly generated outputs are tracked by Barabash and can be deleted on demand


You can install Barabash either via the Python Package Index (PyPI)
or from source.

To install using `pip`,::

$ pip install -U Barabash

To install using `easy_install`::

$ easy_install -U Barabash
