Kundo provides a structured, convention based approach for Java builds. Kundo has a pluggable, extensible architecture; it harnesses the power and flexibility of Groovy and Ant to provide a highly configurable Java build framework. Kundo achieves this flexibility with a plug-in architecture that attaches behaviors (provided by Kundo plug-ins) to build lifecycle phases. Kundo consists of a kernel and a set of foundation plug-ins. The kernel is responsible for the orchestration of the multiple collaborators within the build system.
EBuild is a software project build, dependency management, and reporting technology. The aim is to be able to tackle any build problem in a structured, declarative, and elegant way. It is written in Java, but can be used to build all manner of projects and is extensible via a plugin interface. It is best compared to something like Maven (and in some respects Ivy). It aims to overcome certain design flaws and the resultant unnecessary complexity. The EBuild build model is general, but plugins need to be written in a JVM compatible language. Existing plugins all deal with the Java ecosystem, so EBuild is most suitable for Java and mixed technology software projects.
pyrobase assembles general Python helper functions and classes that can be applied to any project. This includes some additional tasks for the Paver build tool, an improved xmlrpc2scgi module, unit test helpers, and generic base modules for various domains. All modules have unit tests, and the goal is to reach >80% coverage.
no-pkg-config is a bash script which implements the functionality of the standard pkg-config utility. It is intended for users of minimal systems who want to use pkg-config but do not want to install all the dependencies of the standard implementation. Most of the important features of the original implementation are supported. The commandline syntax and .pc file format are the same as the original. To use it, just place the script somewhere in your PATH and give it execute permissions.
dwarves is a set of tools to inspect the DWARF debugging information inserted in ELF binaries by compilers such as GCC, and which are used by well-known debuggers such as GDB and more recent ones such as systemtap. With pahole, the struct packing and cacheline efficiency can be inspected.
