Mission: To define and develop a new build system, buildj, suited to compiling modules from the GNOME desktop and third party applications based around the GNOME platform.
Some of our goals include:
- Less boilerplate. Hand-editable build definitions that Just Work.
- IDE-friendly. Integration with existing tools.
- IJW cross-platform and cross-compilation support.
Most of all, the aim is to make build systems for simple applications and libraries trivial while catering for more complex projects with a simplified syntax.
