Package and build management system for D

Synopsis

dub generate <generator> [<package>[@<version-spec>]] Options...

Description

Generates project files using one of the supported generators:

visuald - VisualD project files

sublimetext - SublimeText project file

cmake - CMake build scripts

build - Builds the package directly

An optional package name can be given to generate a different package than the root/CWD package.

Options

-b,

Specifies the type of build to perform. Note that setting the DFLAGS environment variable will override the build type with custom flags. Possible names:
 debug (default), plain, release, release-debug, release-nobounds, unittest, profile, profile-gc, docs, ddox, cov, unittest-cov, syntax and custom types

-c,

Builds the specified configuration. Configurations can be defined in dub.json

--override-config=VALUE

Uses the specified configuration for a certain dependency. Can be specified multiple times. Format: --override-config=<dependency>/<config>

--compiler=VALUE

Specifies the compiler binary to use (can be a path). Arbitrary pre- and suffixes to the identifiers below are recognized (e.g. ldc2 or dmd-2.063) and matched to the proper compiler type:
 dmd, gdc, ldc, gdmd, ldmd

-a,

Force a different architecture (e.g. x86 or x86_64)

-d,

Define the specified debug version identifier when building - can be used multiple times

--nodeps

--build-mode=VALUE

Specifies the way the compiler and linker are invoked. Valid values:
 separate (default), allAtOnce, singleFile

--single

Treats the package name as a filename. The file must contain a package recipe comment.

--force-remove

Deprecated option that does nothing.

--filter-versions

[Experimental] Filter version identifiers and debug version identifiers to improve build cache efficiency.

--combined

Tries to build the whole project in a single compiler run.

--print-builds

Prints the list of available build types

--print-configs

Prints the list of available configurations

--print-platform

Prints the identifiers for the current build platform as used for the build fields in dub.json
