In contrast with many modern languages, C has no standardized systems of module distribution, dependency handling, or project management in general. From basic directory structure to build tools, everything seems fragmented. More so, libraries are inaccessibly scattered across the web - and that pressures developers to reinvent the wheel over and over again.
Kit is a potential solution to these problems. It provides standardized project structure, centralized module indexing, and a convenient build tool [which wraps CMake, capitalizing on standardization].

Include kit modules.
kit build scans the source tree for lines that match
#include <kit/*>, attempting to resolve each dependency. This is done by searching the local index, and if specified modules aren't found, by resorting to the central registry. Located modules are linked against, and their corresponding headers are added to the include path.
tl;dr: to include a module,
Create kit modules.
To make code available locally, run `kit install'. If you feel that your code could be useful to others, send a pull request with edits to MODULES.csv. That file lists items in the central index.
