LinBuild: A simple build system for C/C++

Jussi Lind <>

The LinBuild Project Page at SourceForge Home gives you access to the releases, source codes (SVN), and more.

:: Introduction ::

LinBuild is a Python-based, simple and user-friendly build system for C/C++ on Linux/Unix. It's intended to be distributed with your project, so there's no need to get it installed on the system.

LinBuild adopts some concepts from Waf and CMake and it is simply a single script that depends only on Python. LinBuild replaces GNU Make and makes it really easy to configure, build & install a C/C++ project.

LinBuild features e.g. automatic build dependency scanning of source files, multi-threaded build process and built-in supports for Qt4 and pkg-config.
