Welcome to CMake, the cross-platform, open-source make system. CMake is used to control the software compilation process using simple platform and compiler independent configuration files. CMake generates native makefiles and workspaces that can be used in the compiler environment of your choice. CMake is quite sophisticated: it is possible to support complex environments requiring system configuration, pre-processor generation, code generation, and template instantiation.

You will find here not only documentation for CMake, but also for CPack and CTest.

Primary Resources - Look here first!

Development Topics


Tutorials

Basic Introductions

Specific Topics

  • How to find libraries
    Describes how to use external libraries in a CMake project and how to write your own find modules for libraries that don't already have one.
  • Qt with CMake
    Explains how to use CMake to build software with Qt4, Qt3 and KDE3.

Recipes

Converters from other buildsystems to CMake

All converters listed here are not "complete", i.e. the generated CMake files are not 100% finished, in all cases some work is left for the developer.

automake/autotools/autoconf

  • am2cmake (requires Ruby) Converts automake/autotools/libtool based projects to CMake, specialized in converting from KDE 3 to KDE 4, should also work for others. This one has been used for converting the KDE buildsystem to CMake.

qmake

Visual Studio

Basic CMakeLists.txt from-scratch-generator

  • gencmake (requires Ruby) Creates basic CMakeLists.txt files from looking at the existing files.
  • CMakeListGenerator (Win32) Creates complete CMakeLists.txt files as described in the README using a combination of file and directory structure analysis. Supports resolving dependencies between multiple archives.

Success Stories

CTest

Tutorials

  • Testing With CTest
    Introduces to testing with CTest, submitting dashboards, and using CMake to add tests to the test system.
  • CTest Scripting
    Describes the scripting with CTest which can significantly simplify and automate testing and submitting dashboards.
