CMake Examples Repository

Overview

CMake is a cross-platform open-source meta-build system which can build, test and package software. It can be used to support multiple native build environments including make, Apple's xcode, and Microsoft Visual Studio.

The cmake-examples repository includes some example CMake configurations which I have picked up when exploring it's usage for various projects. The examples are laid out in a tutorial like format. The first examples are very basic and slowly increase in complexity drawing on previous examples to show more complex use cases.

These examples have been tested on Ubuntu 14.04 but should work under any Linux system that supports CMake.

Examples provide include:

Requirements

The basic requirements for most examples are:
  • CMake
  • A c++ compiler [defaults to gcc]
  • make
The easiest way to install the above on Ubuntu is as follows

$ sudo apt-get install build-essential
$ sudo apt-get install cmake 
Some specific examples may require other tools including:
  • boost
    sudo apt-get libboost-all-dev
  • protobuf
    $ sudo apt-get install libprotobuf-dev
    $ sudo apt-get install protobuf-compiler
  • cppcheck
    $ sudo apt-get install cppcheck 
  • clang
    $ sudo apt-get install clang-3.6 
  • Ninja Build
    $ sudo apt-get install ninja-build
