Lattice is a Java build system with strong multi-module support. Build files are written not in XML, but in the Python language. The benefits are much better readability and powerful imperative build scripting. For multi-module projects, Lattice uses topological sorting to decide the correct order to build each module. Because a custom task is just a regular Python function, they can perform any type of work, including invoking other Java build systems such as Ant, Maven, or Ivy.
Upmf is a source-based package manager written almost completely in Scheme. The user is able to search, build, and remove packages. Since Scheme through GUILE is very extensible, the user can customize the procedures, or even exchange them with his own, if wanted. Packages are stored in their own self-contained directories and are incorporated into the filesystem with help of GNU Stow.
BSD Make Pallas Scripts is a collection of BSD Make directives that can be used to create workflows including the following activities: preparation and publication of TeX documents, development of TeX macros with NOWEB, development of OCaml software, maintenance of FreeBSD workstation configuration files, preparation of a static Web site with ONSGMLS. It has several nice advanced features, like producing METAPOST figures for TeX documents or parallel build on OCaml projects.
CI-Eye is a powerful continuous integration build radiator requiring no installation and almost no set-up. CI-Eye talks to many different CI servers through their REST APIs (so no plug-ins are required). Currently, support is offered for Hudson, Jenkins, and TeamCity. CI-Eye runs as a standalone Web application.
TMake is a fast, lightweight, yet very powerful Build System. You can use TMake to build projects or create new ones. It supports C, C++, C#, Java, and Go compilers and over 100 different packages. It can perform C and C++ dependency checking. It is very fast. It uses for Lua for plain and simple build scripts. It has a GUI.
instmake allows you to instrument builds with GNU Make and then analyze what happened during those builds. It saves a very detailed build log and has reports to analyze those records. The reports provide you better insight into the build, allow you to find race conditions, and to analyze the parallelism of the build.
The Crossplex package of make macros simplifies the creation of embedded systems, and is powerful enough for large organizations to use for developing elaborate product lines. It allows you to organize many different products under a logical structure, making systems of any complexity easy to specify. When you have many different target platforms, each with multiple different software configurations, Crossplex keeps those configurations from stepping on each other, without requiring redundancy in your source tree. Crossplex allows you to use a single dependency tree encompassing both in-house software and third-party packages, and it is particularly suited to build automation. Crossplex makes it easy to shield your build from the host environment, setting all shell variables explicitly, and giving you complete control over the path that is used at any point in the build. This is nice when you want to support building on a variety of development platforms. Crossplex scales to your needs. You can dabble in the unpacking and patching features as you need them, or you can base your entire system from the ground up on the Crossplex framework. Crossplex supports creation and use of glibc and uClibc toolchains.
