The cmake plugin

The cmake plugin is useful for building CMake-based parts.

A cmake project will typically include a CMakeLists.txt file to drive the build, and the plugin requires that CMakeLists.txt exists within the root of the source tree.

This plugin also supports options from the make plugin.

For a simple example, see MOOS applications, or search GitHub for projects already using the plugin.

This plugin uses the common plugin keywords as well as those for “sources”. For more information, see Snapcraft parts metadata.

Additionally, this plugin uses the following base dependent plugin-specific keywords:

base: core20

  • cmake-generator (string; default: “Unix Makefiles”)
    Determine what native build system is to be used.
    Can be either Ninja or Unix Makefiles (default).
  • cmake-parameters (list of strings)
    Configure flags to pass to the build using the common cmake semantics.

Requires Snapcraft version 4.0+.

base: core18 | core

  • configflags (list of strings)
    Configure flags to pass to the build using the common cmake semantics.

Requires Snapcraft version 3.0+.

This is a snapcraft plugin. See Snapcraft plugins and Supported plugins for further details on how plugins are used.
