LLVM Executable/Pass Templates Generator

Generate project templates for executables that use LLVM and LLVM passes.

Generator Kinds & Guides

Standalone Executable(executable)

A normal executable program that uses LLVM.

Pass(pass)

A LLVM pass that can be easily integrated into LLVM project in the future. See this for more information

Executable(tool)(Status: TBD)

A executable program that can be easily integrated into LLVM project as one of the tools in the future.

Install

Requirements:

Install yeoman:

npm install -g yo

Install this generator from npm repository

npm install -g generator-llvm

Usage

Generating Standalone Executable

Boostraping a new project:

yo llvm:executable init

Adding new program to existing (executable)project

yo llvm:executable append

Generating New Pass

Boostraping a new project

yo llvm:pass init

Adding new program to existing (pass)project

yo llvm:pass append

If you like to stay on bleeding edge and want to try the new PassManager pass, add the --new-pm at the tail:

yo llvm::pass init --new-pm
# Same option applies to the "append" command as well

The generated pass is also loaded as an external plugin. Please refer to this article I wrote about how to run a new PassManager pass.

Note

If you append new executable/pass to existing project, it would show the following message:

 conflict ../CMakeLists.txt
? Overwrite ../CMakeLists.txt? (ynaxdH)

It is because that we're trying to modify an exist file(the top-level CMakeLists.txt), which is not what yeoman glad to see. However, in this case, press y to overrite is totally fine.
