Tundra, a build system

Tundra is a high-performance code build system designed to give the best possible incremental build times even for very large software projects.

Tundra is portable and works on

  • Mac OSX (10.6-10.8 tested, but most any version should work)
  • Linux
  • FreeBSD
  • Windows (XP or later - binary releases require Vista/64 or later - for XP support build from source using MinGW.)

Porting to UNIX-like platforms will be very easy, porting to other platforms will take a little bit of work in a few well-defined places.

See doc/manual.asciidoc for more detailed usage information.

There is a companion Visual Studio 2012 addin that might be useful. See https://github.com/deplinenoise/tundra-vsplugin for details.

Binaries

Windows installers are available for download in the releases tab.
