Re: [opensuse-packaging] Build tool suggestion

Quoting Sankar P <psankar@xxxxxxxxxx>:

I am trying to write a shared library, which will have about a dozen .c files and a single .h file that will exposed outside. I want this library to be working on linux, windows and mac. What is the best tool to use for this, which will require very less of my time and will generate the .so or .dll appropriately as per the platform ?

I googled a bit and found that there are a lot of tools like libtool, cmake, ninja/gyp (used by chromium) etc. What is the best tool recommended by the openSUSE community members for such a build operation ?

Sankar,

Generally, they are all broken. So it does not really matter.

autoconf/automake (autotools) has a lot of resources available and is usually one of the easier ones to get started with (this is the 'standard' configure / make / make install).

cmake is decent, rather easy and for the platforms you listed also not too bad to handle.
