Addons & new build rules for Please
Most of these are either still experimental or sufficiently esoteric that we prefer not to make them part of the main Please distribution.
Currently contains the following:
- Android: A set of rules to build Android .apk files. Includes rules for many features of Android apps, including dependencies, and a set of rules for native development using the NDK.
- C++: Replacement rules that use ThinLTO to perform fast incremental link-time optimisation.
go_bindatarule to pack arbitrary files into Go source (see go-bindata)
- Grm: Rules for building Thrax grammars. You'll need to have OpenFST and Thrax installed for these.
- Rust: A very basic set of rules for building Rust code. Hasn't gone much beyond "hello world" yet.
- Protocol Buffers: Extensions to the builtin proto rules, currently one to generate a REST proxy using grpc-gateway
- Java: An extended compiler worker that integrates error-prone for additional compile-time diagnostics.
- Scala: Basic rules for compiling scala code to
.jarfiles. No test support yet.
- Package: Rules for packaging things. Currently contains a generic wrapper to fpm and a specific one for building .deb files.
- Remote: Various extended rules for fetching remote files. Includes some conveniences for handling git / github and one for verifying downloaded files against GPG ASCII-armoured signatures.
