CMake and Visual Studio. CMake produces Visual Studio solutions seamlessly.

CMake and Visual Studio

This post will map CMake commands to the Visual Studio IDE with an example which makes learning much easier. It is primarily intended for a C++ developer using Visual Studio. Most references here is based on Visual Studio 2010 but will apply equally well to other versions. CMake and Visual Studio. CMakeGraphVizOptions — CMake 3.0.2 Documentation. The builtin graphviz support of CMake.

CMakeGraphVizOptions — CMake 3.0.2 Documentation

CMake can generate graphviz files, showing the dependencies between the targets in a project and also external libraries which are linked against. When CMake is run with the –graphiz=foo option, it will produce a foo.dot file showing all dependencies in the projecta foo.dot. <target> file for each target, file showing on which other targets the respective target dependsa foo.dot. <target>.dependers file, showing which other targets depend on the respective target This can result in huge graphs. The graph type Mandatory : NODefault : “digraph” The graph name.

Mandatory : NODefault : “GG” The header written at the top of the graphviz file. Mandatory : NODefault : “node [n fontsize = “12”];” The prefix for each node in the graphviz file. Mandatory : NODefault : “node” Set this to FALSE to exclude executables from the generated graphs. Mandatory : NODefault : TRUE Set this to FALSE to exclude static libraries from the generated graphs. Initiation à CMake. I-A.

Initiation à CMake

Problématique▲ Qu'un logiciel soit libre ou propriétaire, son code source n'a que peu de chances de rester exclusivement entre les mains de son auteur d'origine. Un projet propriétaire développé en entreprise pourra être maintenu par une multitude de personnes tout au long de son existence. Un logiciel libre, quant à lui, peut compter plusieurs dizaines voire plusieurs centaines de développeurs éparpillés à travers le monde, sans compter les utilisateurs souhaitant compiler le code source eux-mêmes. Pour compiler le code source, toutes ces personnes ont besoin d'un ensemble de fichiers contenant les paramètres de compilation.

En conséquence, il devient évident que le partage du fichier de projet de l'EDI ou encore du ou des fichiers makefile n'est pas une solution acceptable.

XxxYyy_ZZZZZ) I still vote for UPPERCASE variables, see --Daniele.Domenichelli@iit.it 15:32, 14 November 2012 (CET) CMake: dependencies between targets and files and custom commands. As I said in my last post about CMake, targets are everything in CMake.

CMake: dependencies between targets and files and custom commands

Unfortunately, not everything is a target though! If you’ve tried do anything non-trivial in CMake using the add_custom_command() command, you may have got stuck in this horrible swamp of confusion. If you want to generate some kind of file at build time, in some manner other than compiling C or C++ code, then you need to use a custom command to generate the file. But files aren’t targets and have all sorts of exciting limitations to make you forget everything you ever new about dependency management.

What makes it so hard is that there’s not one limitation, but several. Windows. C/C++ Open Source Package Manager. CMake Useful Variables - KitwarePublic. CMake uses and defines many variables, which can be used in CMakeLists.txt files.

CMake Useful Variables - KitwarePublic

NOTE: As of CMake 2.6.0 many of these variables have been officially documented in TXT and HTML files released with CMake. You may still see some useful variables here that haven't yet been documented in the official documentation, although the number of these diminishes with every release. This page, in either case, is more of a distilled list of some of the more important variables.

The official documentation is home of the authoritative guide to all CMake variables, commands, and properties. Locations if you are building in-source, this is the same as CMAKE_SOURCE_DIR, otherwise this is the top level directory of your build tree this is the complete path of the cmake which runs currently (e.g. If you are building in-source, this is the same as CMAKE_CURRENT_SOURCE_DIR, otherwise this is the directory where the compiled or generated files from the current CMakeLists.txt will go to Environment Variables.
