Description

A call to helm-make will give you a helm selection of this directory Makefile's targets. Selecting a target will call compile on it. You can cancel as usual with C-g.

Install

Just get it from MELPA.

The functions that this package provides are auto-loaded, so no additional setup is required. Unless you want to bind the functions to a key.

Additional stuff

helm-make-do-save

If this is set to t, the currently visited files from Makefile's directory will be saved.

helm-make-projectile

This is a helm-make called with (projectile-project-root) as base directory.

helm-make-list-target-method

What method should be used to parse the Makefile. The default value is default, which is a pure elisp solution, but falls a bit short when the Makefile includes other Makefile's. The second option is qp, it is much more accurate, as it uses the database produced by make to extract the targets. But could be a bit slower when the database produced by make is large.

helm-make-build-dir

An additional directory, relative to projectile-project-root, where helm-make-projectile will search for a valid Makefile. A valid Makefile is one that GNU make looks after, i.e. the name of the Makefile must be one of Makefile, makefile or GNUmakefile to be valid.

helm-make-sort-targets

If this is set to t, sort the targets before calling the completion method. By default it is set to nil, if you are setting it to t, and you encounter longer delays before the targets are displayed, try to set this back to nil. This, however, might only be the case, if the Makefile contains thousand of targets.

helm-make-cache-targets

If this is set to t, cache the targets. Next time when you call helm-make(-projectile) for the same Makefile, and the modification time of the Makefile has not changed meanwhile, reuse the cached targets. It is set to nil by default.

helm-make-executable

You can customize executable of make command by changing this variable. Helpful for implementing remote compiling.

helm-make-named-buffer

When setting helm-make-named-buffer to t all make buffers will be named based on their make target. e.g. *Helm-Make all* for make all. This is useful if you want to run multiple make targets at the same time.

helm-make-comint

When setting helm-make-comint to t helm-make will use Comint mode instead of Compilation mode. This is useful if you want to interact with the make buffer.
