Plain gyp distribution on npm. This project does not alter original gyp in any way. The main purpose of this repository is to allow developers to install and play with gyp quickly.
Make sure you have python installed and available in your PATH.
npm install -g ngyp
Once project is installed, you can start generating your projects. By default
ngyp command will forward all arguments to gyp_main:
> ngyp gyp: usage: gyp_main.py [options ...] [build_file ...] gyp_main.py: error: no build_file
hello world with gyp
Let's say we have the following files:
// main.cc - our main c++ fileint
In the same folder we have a gyp folder, which defines how to generate project file for this C++ code:
To generate a make file that compiles this project:
ngyp main.gyp --depth=. -f make --generator-output=build
This will create a
build folder, where we can run
make and get our code compiled:
> cd build && make CXX(target) out/Default/obj.target/hello-world/main.o LINK(target) out/Default/hello-world > ./out/Default/hello-world Hello World!
