I don’t have much more to say about Redo, but I should mention a few things and point out a few resources (including some criticism).
First, the apenwarr version of Redo on github supports parallel building (using
-j flag just as in make). I haven’t tried it out, but hey, parallel
building is cool. Also, Redo claims to support recursive builds much better
than some other tools (cough make). I haven’t ever need to use that, either.
A few other discussions of Redo that are worth mentioning:
- I think that djb redo will turn out to be the git of build systems
- Why djb redo will not turn out to be the git of build systems
- A quick introduction to Redo
- Introduction to Redo
If you read these, you quickly come to the conclusion that Redo is not perfect. However, I have enjoyed using it more than any other build tool I’ve ever encountered. I’d encourage you to give it a shot!
