This page describes autobuild 1.0. As of 2015-03-20, autobuild 1.0 can be found in this repository; as of this date, the official repository and the PyPI package are still at autobuild 0.8.

You can install autobuild 1.0 (e.g. into a virtualenv) from the alternate repository using a command such as (bash):

pip install 'hg+'

or (Windows command prompt):

pip install  hg+

Autobuild offers a set of shell functions for use in scripts which can be added to the environment by inserting the following line into any build script:

eval "$("$AUTOBUILD" source_environment)"

The exact shell code that is injected into your environment upon execution of this command is here, with (for Windows) additional functions here.

General functions

Shell functions provided by autobuild:

Function Description
pass Indicates build has succeeded
fail $comment Indicates build has failed, citing $comment in the output
fetch_archive $url $archive $md5 Uses curl to download $archive from the $url and checks the downloaded file hash against the $md5 provided.
extract $file Extracts contents of an archive appropriate for the tar extension of $file.
calc_md5 $file Calculate the md5 of $file

Windows-only commands

Windows-only shell commands (Cygwin):

Function Description
build_vcproj $vcproj $config Launches a Visual Studio build of $vcproj, building configuration $config.

If $USE_INCREDIBUILD is set, the same build is launched via BuildConsole, Incredibuild's command-line launcher.

build_sln $sln $config $project Launches a Visual Studio build using the solution file $sln, configuration $config, and specifying project $project.

If $project is omitted, then the entire solution will be built.

load_vsvars Import Visual Studio paths, includes and libs into the shell environment
