Cmake is awesome

Tags : HomeIO, Software, News

My friend told my about cmake that it is his favourite building tool.

At start I had big problem to understand how this tool works. I need to create simple “hello world” program and compile it. Next thing was try to integrate with HomeIO and from that point it started to work quite fast.

The biggest pros of cmake is that if make compiling much faster in development by compiling only what has been changed. After compile error I don’t have to wait to compile what was already done.

There are some things to do, like put some cmake snippets in better format than shell scripts. I don’t want to use makefile to run another makefile.
