A common repository for CMake Modules which are not distributed with CMake but are commonly used by ROS packages.
See the CONTRIBUTING.md file in this repository before submitting pull requests for new modules.
This repository has branches for minor releases (
0.4-devel, etc...) and they map to specific ROS distributions like so:
- ROS Groovy
- ROS Hydro
- ROS Indigo
- ROS Jade
- ROS Kinetic
- ROS Lunar
- ROS Melodic
This mapping will be kept up-to-date in the
README.md on the default branch.
In the future, new minor releases will increment by the number of ROS distros that are skipped.
For example, if a custom branch is needed for ROS Lunar, then it will be
0.6-devel and not
0.5-devel, so that
0.5-devel maybe used by Kinetic in the future if necessary.
- NumPy is the fundamental package for scientific computing with Python.
- TBB lets you easily write parallel C++ programs that take full advantage of multicore performance.
- TinyXML is a simple, small, C++ XML parser.
- TinyXML2 is a simple, small, C++ XML parser, continuation of TinyXML.
- Xenomai is a real-time development framework cooperating with the Linux kernel.
- GSL is a numerical library for C and C++ programmers.
- Gflags is a C++ library that implements commandline flags processing with the ability to define flags in the source file in which they are used.
- [Deprecated] Eigen is a C++ template library for linear algebra: matrices, vectors, numerical solvers, and related algorithms.
To use the CMake modules provided by this catkin package, you must
<build_depend> on it in your
package.xml, like so:
<?xml version="1.0"?> <package> <!-- ... --> <build_depend>cmake_modules</build_depend> </package>
Then you must
find_package it in your
CMakeLists.txt along with your other catkin build dependencies:
find_package(catkin REQUIRED COMPONENTS ... cmake_modules ...)
find_package'ing it directly:
After the above
find_package invocations, the modules provided by
cmake_modules will be available in your
CMAKE_MODULE_PATH to be found. For example you can find
TinyXML by using the following:
