Gnasher alleviates developers from having to execute maven builds with the "-o" option (offline) to avoid accessing external repositories' metadata files. The SHA1 hash files and the missing pom metadata files for dependencies are created if they are missing. The next time the build is run, external repositories are not accessed and the build runs faster.
The Tcl Dev Kit (TDK) provides essential tools for Tcl programmers, making it easy to create, build, and deploy applications. You can rapidly deploy Tcl applications to a broad range of platforms as ready-to-run executables, starkits, or starpacks. Development is simplified with tools for finding and fixing bugs, managing complex code bases, and optimizing your programs. Take control and work the way you want with a choice of GUIs or command line interfaces for most tools.
cygbuild is a porting tool for making Cygwin net releases. It helps Cygwin source and binary package maintainers to configure, build, strip, produce diffs, and generate Cygwin specific files. To put it simply, it converts any freely available program or package into a complete Cygwin net release distribution.
autogen.sh (a.k.a. buildconf) provides automatic build system preparation and is generally very useful to projects that use the GNU build system (i.e. the GNU autotools: autoconf, automake, and libtool). It is a POSIX shell script that is used for preparing a build system for compilation, verifying versions, ensuring necessary functionality, and overcoming many common build preparation issues.
make project is a command line program which makes project skeletons. It automates the task of starting a new project with the information provided from the commandline. The package created by default is a "hello world" project of the selected skeleton which is managed with autotools. There are skeletons for bash, C, C library, Python, C++, C++ library, and Perl.
