Custom tools/builders for SCons. Each is in a self-contained file, put it into your ~/.scons/site_scons/site_tools directory, or use code like this:
env = Environment(tools = ['default', 'archive'], toolpath = ['scons-tools'])
You should put the tools file (in this case, archive.py) into a subfolder of the directory SConstruct resides in called scons-tools.
Note: Depending on your distro and scons version, the site_tools directory may reside elsewhere. Check the scons manpage for details.
The documentation is a bit lacking at this moment, you are encouraged to have a look at the source files to find out what builders are available.
All of these SCons tools play along nicely with hitnrun.
A lot of tools are available for web development, here is an example
SConstruct file to showcase some of them:
import os env = Environment(tools=['default', 'web'], ENV=os.environ, CLOSURE_COMPILER_JAR='~/compiler.jar') # compile our scripts js_files = env.Coffee(Glob('src/coffee/*.coffee')) # compile html to minified html html_files = [env.HtmlComp(fn) for fn in Glob('*.html')] # build assets (closure compiler + less for style sheets) env.Closure('static/js/app.js', js_files) env.Less('static/css/main.css', Glob('src/less/*.less'))
Working on this is nice if you use hitnrun, simply type:
Now saving any of the
.coffee files will trigger a rebuild of
the parts that need to be rebuilt.
