Conventions-over-configuration C++/modules project manager.

Project description


Conventions-over-configuration C++/modules project manager.

This is a simple approach to deal with C++ modules. By using a bunch of conventions, this Python module scans for all files and generates a to compile the code.

Currently, it is personal endeavor to use C++ modules with some dependency management, which (as of 2019) is not provided by existing building systems. Hacks and non-sense may be included.

Requires a folder structure like this:

  • root
    • includes
      • h-files and subfolders
    • sources
      • common
        • cppm-files and subfolders
      • osx-metal
        • cppm-files
        • mm-files
      • ...
    • tests
      • app-folder-1
        • cppm-files
        • cpp-files
      • app-folder-2
      • ...
    • tools
      • cpp-files
    • unit-tests
      • cpp-files
    • bli.yaml

includes is added as part of the include path.

sources/common contains CPP modules (using cppm as extension). They will be scanned, with all cppm files added to the build. The module name is independent of the file name, being extracted from the export module statement.

sources/osx-metal is a hack to build Apple-compatible folders. It also compiles metal files.

tests creates one standalone application per folder. Every linked application will contains all objects from sources folders.

unit-tests are compiled independently and liked with sources/common objects and run as part of the test target.

Dependencies are calculated from both cppm and cpp files, by parsing the import statements.

bli.yaml identifies the root folder and contains configuration to override global and per-file flags.
