How hard would it be to specify a C cross-compiler (for example the iar embedded workbench tool chain) to be used for the C++ project support? I am looking to replace Scons in some distant future.
Right now, it would be relatively tricky. But the C++ support is under active development, and we expect that Cross-compiler support will be available pretty soon (< 3 months).
Our goal is to make Gradle the best build tool for C/C++/Assembler projects. We’re a little ways off beating SCons in the compiler support area, but we feel that Gradle’s inherent flexibility will ultimately win out.
If you’re interested in being a beta-tester, or helping out with development, let me know.
I’d love to be a beta tester for this (although I have virtually no experience at all using gradle). Is there anywhere to get the latest news and developments for the c++ parts of gradle?
I am certainly interested in helping out with development. Just point me where to go. My Java is a bit rusty, but my development skills are reasonable.
