dub-generate - Man Page

Generates project files using the specified generator

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,  --build=VALUE

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, plain, release, release-debug, release-nobounds, unittest, profile, profile-gc, docs, ddox, cov, cov-ctfe, unittest-cov, unittest-cov-ctfe, syntax and custom types

-c,  --config=VALUE

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,  --arch=VALUE

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

-d,  --debug=VALUE

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

--d-version=VALUE

Define the specified `version` identifier when building - can be used multiple times. Use sparingly, with great power comes great responsibility! For commonly used or combined versions and versions that dependees should be able to use, create configurations in your package.

--nodeps

Do not resolve missing dependencies before building

--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

--parallel

Runs multiple compiler instances in parallel, if possible.
