KDE Switches To CMake

Filed under
KDE

The KDE4 build system is now centered around CMake. If you are a developer, CMake will be much easier to learn, handle and maintain than what you are used to so far.

Alexander Neundorf, who took upon himself a big share of the actual work required for the switch, has published Why the KDE project switched to CMake -- and how on the LWN.net development pages. He outlines the considerations that led to choosing CMake over competing tools, shows why CMake is a better fit than the autotools used in KDE 1, 2 & 3, provides a short introduction into CMake file syntax. He even allows some insights into the current KDE4 development state. Hot on the heels of KDE, Scribus is switching as well
