What's autobuild ?

Autobuild imports, configures, builds and installs various kinds of software packages. It can be used in software development to make sure that nothing is broken in the build process of a set of packages, or can be used as an automated installation tool.

Autobuild config files are Ruby scripts which configure rake to

  • imports the package from a SCM or (optionnaly) updates it

  • configures it. This phase can handle code generation, configuration (for instance for autotools-based packages), …

  • build

  • install

It takes the dependencies between packages into account in its build process, updates the needed environment variables (PKG_CONFIG_PATH, PATH, LD_LIBRARY_PATH, …)
