cmake 0.1.20

A build dependency for running `cmake` to build a native library

Crate cmake [] [src]

A build dependency for running cmake to build a native library

This crate provides some necessary boilerplate and shim support for running the system cmake command to build a native library. It will add appropriate cflags for building code to link into Rust, handle cross compilation, and use the necessary generator for the platform being targeted.

The builder-style configuration allows for various variables and such to be passed down into the build as well.

Installation

Add this to your Cargo.toml:

[build-dependencies]
cmake = "0.1"

Examples

use cmake;

// Builds the project in the directory located in `libfoo`, installing it
// into $OUT_DIR
let dst = cmake::build("libfoo");

println!("cargo:rustc-link-search=native={}", dst.display());
println!("cargo:rustc-link-lib=static=foo");
use cmake::Config;

let dst = Config::new("libfoo")
                 .define("FOO", "BAR")
                 .cflag("-foo")
                 .build();
println!("cargo:rustc-link-search=native={}", dst.display());
println!("cargo:rustc-link-lib=static=foo");

Structs

Config

Builder style configuration for a pending CMake build.

Functions

build

Builds the native library rooted at path with the default cmake options. This will return the directory in which the library was installed.
