Execute make, cmake, maven and parses gcc/llvm output

Project description

Build Driver

Possible integration into build:

Building project-foo, this may take a while
Compiling failed for compilation unit 'lib-bar'
Error: ‘stderr’ undeclared (first use in this function) in function qux.c line 23
The complete build log is available at '/tmp/build-392193.log'

A simple GCC/LLVM (clang) output parser. It reads lines from compiler and makefile runs, parse, split them and provides parsed information in a harmonized format.

It is possible to configure what you want: access to the pased information? Counters? Affected files?


Simple install this module via pip (pip for Python 2 is also supported)

pip3 install --user gccoutputparser


GCC sends warnings and errors to standard error while normal output goes to standard output.


As Python Module

import builddriver

result = builddriver.execute('make -C path/to/makfile')

As Python Executable

Compiling the Linux Kernel (not a "good" example, because there is usually no warning in the build, except you increase the warning level somehow):

$ python3 -m builddriver make -j16 V=2 O=../linux-build
builddriver executing: 'make -j16 V=2 O=../linux-build'
Compilation SUCCEED in 297.833702 seconds
Number of warnings: 0
