CMake is a family of tools designed to build, test and package software. CMake is used to control the software compilation process using simple platform and compiler independent configuration files. CMake generates native makefiles and workspaces that can be used in the compiler...
SCons is an Open Source software construction tool—that is, a next-generation build tool. Think of SCons as an improved, cross-platform substitute for the classic Make utility with integrated functionality similar to autoconf/automake and compiler caches such as ccache.
Ninja is a small build system with a focus on speed. It differs from other build systems in two major respects: it is designed to have its input files generated by a higher-level build system, and it is designed to run builds as fast as possible.
Powerfully simple build configuration
Describe your software project just once, using Premake's simple and easy to read syntax, and build it everywhere. Generate project files for Visual Studio, GNU Make, Xcode, Code::Blocks, and more across Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. Use.
The main design point of Meson is that every moment a developer spends writing or debugging build definitions is a second wasted. So is every second spent waiting for the build system to actually start compiling code.
Apache Ant is an Open Source Java-based build tool (for software development). It uses XML files to describe, structure and control the build process. Most actions are described as 'Tasks' - Ant offers a library of built-in Tasks, but various 3rd party Tasks and Task...
Embedthis MakeMe is a modern replacement for make and autoconf. It manages the building of programs and products by direct compilation and the generation of IDE projects and Makefiles. MakeMe can portably build programs for Linux, Mac and Windows and handles cross-compilation...
