The Open webOS logging library


Below are the tools (and their minimum versions) required to build PmLogLib:

  • cmake (version required by openwebos/cmake-modules-webos)
  • gcc 4.6.3
  • glib-2.0 2.32.4
  • openwebos/libpbnjson 1.3.0
  • make (any version)
  • openwebos/cmake-modules-webos 1.0.0 RC3
  • pkg-config 0.26

Below is the component (and its minimum version) required to run PmLogLib:

  • openwebos/PmLogConf 2.0.0

How to Build on Linux


Once you have downloaded the source, enter the following to build it (after changing into the directory under which it was downloaded):

$ mkdir BUILD
$ cd BUILD
$ cmake ..
$ make
$ sudo make install

The directory under which the files are installed defaults to /usr/local/webos. You can install them elsewhere by supplying a value for WEBOS_INSTALL_ROOT when invoking cmake. For example:

$ cmake -D WEBOS_INSTALL_ROOT:PATH=$HOME/projects/openwebos ..
$ make
$ make install

will install the files in subdirectories of $HOME/projects/openwebos.

Specifying WEBOS_INSTALL_ROOT also causes pkg-config to look in that tree first before searching the standard locations. You can specify additional directories to be searched prior to this one by setting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable.

If not specified, WEBOS_INSTALL_ROOT defaults to /usr/local/webos.

To configure for a debug build, enter:


To see a list of the make targets that cmake has generated, enter:

$ make help


From the directory where you originally ran make install, enter:

$ [sudo] make uninstall

You will need to use sudo if you did not specify WEBOS_INSTALL_ROOT.

Generating Documentation

The tools required to generate the documentation are:

  • doxygen
  • graphviz 2.26.3

Once you have run cmake, enter the following to generate the documentation:

$ make docs

To view the generated HTML documentation, point your browser to Documentation/PmLogLib/html/index.html

To install the generated documentation, enter:

$ [sudo] make install-docs

The documentation will be installed to usr/share/doc/PmLogLib/html under the tree defined by the value of WEBOS_INSTALL_ROOT (or its default).

You will need to use sudo if you did not specify WEBOS_INSTALL_ROOT.
