Title: How can I build a tarball of a project?
Post by: faern on January 02, 2007, 09:49:01 pm
I want to release my project. I want it packed in a tarball with a configure script and so on, so I can execute 'configure && make && make install' on it.
Is it possible to build such packages from code::blocks? I used to do it in anjuta, it was in a menu called Build -> Build Distribution

The packaging part, yes, you can do it easily from within C::B in more than one ways.
But if you want C::B to auto-generate the autotools magic files for you, you 're out of luck ;).

Hi. Since this is exactly the same question I have for now... have there been any updates on utilities/plugins/scripts (even if they're third-party) to make config-make'able  tarballs for our projects?

I need to make my current C::B project easily-compilable for beta-testers. Any info?

Thanks!

The cbMakefileGen plugin from kisoft might be usable for you.
If you search the forum for "cbMakefileGen" you get several threads.
The first one is the main thread: http://forums.codeblocks.org/index.php/topic,6241.0.html (http://forums.codeblocks.org/index.php/topic,6241.0.html) .
