The waf plugin

The waf plugin is useful when integrating parts that need to use the Waf meta build system.

Waf based projects are configured and built using a local waf Python helper. See https://gitlab.com/ita1024/waf/ for more details.

This plugin uses the common plugin keywords as well as those for “sources”. For more information, see Snapcraft parts metadata.

In addition, this plugin uses the following plugin-specific keywords:

  • configflags (list of strings)
    Configure flags to pass to the build such as those shown by running ./waf --help

For examples, search GitHub for projects already using the plugin.

This is a snapcraft plugin. See Snapcraft plugins and Supported plugins for further details on how plugins are used.
