CMake is a cross-platform, open-source tool for building software in a compiler-free method. CMake Cookbook features a collection of recipes and building blocks with tips and techniques for working with CMake, CTest, CPack, and CDash.
This book includes real-world examples in the form of recipes that cover different ways to configure, build, and test small- to large-scale code projects. You will learn to use CMake's command-line tools and master modern CMake practices for configuring, building, and testing binaries and libraries. With this book, you will be able to work with external libraries and structure your own projects in a modular and reusable way. You will be well-equipped to generate native build scripts for Linux, MacOS, and Windows, simplify and refactor projects using CMake, and port projects to CMake.
