CMake is a cross-platform tool; the idea is to have a single definition of how the project is built – which translates into specific build definitions for any supported platform. It perfectly worked for me. I already contacted you through the mail.

Use the same steps as before to build the static library, and you will see the output as follows: Good information on cmake for begginers like me helped me a lot ,Thank you. Have been following your blogs for years now. From being a student to a professional I still follow them many times as references. It accomplishes this by pairing with different platform-specific buildsystems; CMake is an intermediate step, that generates build input for different specific platforms.

For these generators CMake will try its best to generate a build directory structure such that files from different configurations do not step on each other.

Einführung in das Buildsystem Cmake

Deeutsch of building from multiple source files, we can first deploy foo. Keep up the awesome work, sir! Each only handles as much of the build as is present in the current directory.


Its a work in progress and I will try to continuously improve it. So I wrote this short CMake introduction as a distilled version of what I found out after working through the docs and following stackoverflow questions. I have been following from past one years.

This example shows how to deploy cmzke “Hello World” program as a library and how to link it with other targets. Define variables that the buildsystem will use in this directory, and in its subdirectories. It helped me a lot. Linking an existing static library commented out in the example does not seem to work.

It is just beyond my comprehension. I have looked at several cmake tutorials and was about to give up because none of them make sense. CMake will build the library as libtest. Have a question about the part about using the library: We also include our public header file into the install step and tell cmake to put it into include.

When trying to learn Tutoria, I could not find any good introduction. CMake knows several build types, which usually influence default compiler and linker parameters such as debugging information being created or alternative code paths. On Linux, you can also install the packages from the distribution’s package manager. Locate a library which is somewhere in the source tree. Home About Blackbelt Labs. Would be very helpful.

CMake by Example

It just prints out a list of options and setting for cmake. We can follow the same procedure in the above example to build our tuorial.

Generate a file, based on the deutscn build configuration. This will help me with creating a shared library with CMake, which is my current task at my company. CMake will make sure to first build test before linking it to myapp. I followed the instructions and have an include, src, build and all the files.

Thank you so much for sharing the good work.

Hi, I really appreciate your efforts. Thank you very much.

While CMake enjoys increasing interestthere are still plenty of libraries cmaje native build systems like Unix Makefiles. I almost lost hope for ever finding a decent explanation on how to write a cmakelists. For single-config generators switching the configuration requires re-running CMake.

It was really well explained. You can determine the constituents of a static library using the GNU ar archive command — for example: Thats all we need to be able to build our app with any of the available generators.
