CGold: The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the CMake


The project is not under active development

Welcome to CGold!

This guide will show you how to use CMake and will help you to write elegant, correct and scalable projects. We’ll start from the simple cases and add more features one by one. This tutorial covers only part of the CMake capabilities - some topics are skipped intentionally in favor of better modern approaches [1]. This document is designed to be a good tutorial for absolute beginners but also touches on some aspects in which advanced developers may be interested. Look at this document as a skeleton/starting point for further CMake learning.
