|Summary : A framework for configuring, compiling and installing applications
|Description : |
Waf is a Python-based framework for configuring, compiling and installing
applications. It derives from the concepts of other build tools such as
Scons, Autotools, CMake, and Ant.
* Easy to use: Waf configuration files are written in the mainstream
scripting language Python.
* Easy to install and to distribute: Waf fits entirely in a single
75KB redistributable file which does not require any installation to run.
* Portable: Waf only depends on Python which is ported onto most
* Reliable: Waf uses hash-based dependency calculation dependencies to
compute the targets to rebuild.
* User-friendly: The output can be displayed in colors, filtered,
displayed with progress bars or output all the commands that get
* Documented: The Waf book sums up the essential concepts.
* Flexible: Because Waf has a carefully designed object oriented
architecture it is very easy to add new features.
* Fast: Because of its carefully designed architecture, Waf is able
to distribute the jobs on multi-core hardware (-j), it is able to
reuse targets compiled already (ccache), and its runtime footprint
is pretty small compared to other build tools.
* Broad support for languages and tools: Waf is already used for C,
C++, C#, D, java, ocaml, python project, and provides various
tools for processing docbook, man pages, intltool, msgfmt.
