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.


Blog incl. weekly progress reports
