What are your favorite build tools?

Present: Chris, Julian, Eric, Ivan

Tools:

  • Ant
  • Maven 2
  • Make
  • Rake
  • SCons (old? made by the Perforce team? That's jam, not SCons)
  • Roll your own
  • IDE
  • Raven? just an API in Ruby on top of Maven?
  • Rant/Nant: few people use it

Ant:

  • hard to refactor
  • XML: not good
  • dependencies
  • macros
  • pushing too much in path overgrowth trying to reuse
