Build Gear is a lightweight build tool for building embedded firmware. Its primary focus is to make it easy to create and maintain fully-customized embedded firmware. This is reflected in a straightforward commandline interface and support for easy-to-understand build files. The secondary focus is build performance and build integrity. Build Gear is easy to use and well-suited for rapid prototyping and product development of GNU/Linux firmware to be deployed in small-to-medium-sized embedded systems.
Smooth Build is a build tool which provides a functional language which lets you describe a build process in a simple and readable way. A build script for a simple Java program can be as simple as "app.jar: files("src") | javac | jar;" All built artifacts are cached and indexed (hashed) using the sha1 of the expression (function name and its arguments) which returned a given artifact. This way, Smooth never builds the same artifact twice.
Embedthis Pak is a simple package manager for embedded applications. It makes it easy to retrieve, integrate, and manage components for embedded applications. An online Pak catalog provides tested, integrated componens that work together. It is not intended as a generic package manager to install complete applications. It implements the CommonJS Package specification and uses Git as back-end storage for packages. Pak calls packages "paks". This is not a misspelling.
