Software Builder Tool

Project description

Builder Tool

This is a Python project that provides a tool for building software. It is language agnostic and works by allowing a user to specify the build tasks which should be performed.

There are two major reasons for writing this. Build tools like ant and gradle are plentiful but many are overly bloated with tons of stuff that's either unnecessary or overly generalized and prone to being convoluted to learn. I wanted something simple to maintain from a project and development workflow perspective.

There are plenty of build related things this tool cannot do. If you run across those, I'm sure one of the others will suit you just fine. This one is really meant to be standalone or to play well with something simple like make at the top level of the build process. It is an attempt to have a straightforward build tool that is not over-engineered. The KISS rule reigns here.

Full documentation may be found here.


The tool is written in Python and requires Python 3.7 or better. To install straight from PyPi, just do:

pip install builder-tool

If you need to, you can install it from this repo by doing:

git clone
cd builder-tool
python install

You may want to do the install in a virtual environment. See the file for which other packages are required (there aren't many and mostly what you'd expect).
