Welcome to scikit-build
scikit-build is an improved build system generator for CPython C/C++/Fortran/Cython extensions. It provides better support for additional compilers, build systems, cross compilation, and locating dependencies and their associated build requirements.
The scikit-build package is fundamentally just glue between
setuptools Python module and CMake.
To get started, see :ref:`this example <basic_usage_example>`. For more examples, see scikit-build-sample-projects.
