FBThrift: Facebook's branch of apache thrift

The main focus of this package is the new C++ server, under thrift/lib/cpp2. This repo also contains a branch of the rest of apache thrift's repo with any changes Facebook has made, however the build system only supports cpp2.

Apache thrift is at http://thrift.apache.org/

Building

For your convenience, a build script is provided for ubuntu 12.10 64-bit:

cd fbthrift/thrift ./deps.sh

It will automatically pull down folly and build it, and then configure and build thrift.

Dependencies

  • Facebook's folly library: http://www.github.com/facebook/folly

  • Ubuntu 12.10 64-bit requires the following packages:

    • autoconf
    • libtool
