Subject [jira] [Created] (COUCHDB-2513) Improve CouchDB rebar build scripts
Date Fri, 12 Dec 2014 20:53:13 GMT
Brian Mitchell created COUCHDB-2513:

             Summary: Improve CouchDB rebar build scripts
                 Key: COUCHDB-2513
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Improvement
      Security Level: public (Regular issues)
          Components: Build System
            Reporter: Brian Mitchell

I've worked on improving the rebar build process over the past week after having many issues
on different machines which all required editing of various source controlled files in order
to get things to build.

The effort focusses on simplifying most of the rebar specific configuration. In most cases
this means moving things out of scripts and into vanilla config files to make it clear what
the defaults are. The other part is handling build flags for ports which include separate
flags for each port properly to allow the user to pass in new configuration via environment

Finally, I have a user.config file which can be placed in the couch directory which can be
generated by configure scripts. This allows merging in persistent values for building (for
example, I often have non-standard icu4c paths so I'll ensure those are put into this file).

There is a bit more work to be done cleaning up the configure script side of things but you
can find a work in progress over at this git repo:
I've also got more experimental changes at though I've
not split out the build specific changes into a branch yet.
