IXM is a CMake library for writing Modern flexible CMake. This means:

  • Reducing the amount of CMake written
  • Selecting reasonable defaults
  • Supporting hooks and customization points for overriding said defaults
  • Target and Generator Expression focused operations

⚠️ IXM currently supports CMake 3.13 as a minimum target. This will change to CMake 3.14 once released.


Donations are extremely appreciated. If you have gotten some use out of IXM, please consider donating to my liberapay by clicking the donate link above.
