Zapcc formula help wanted


(Monouser7dig) #1

zapcc is an attempt to make compiling cpp code faster but the author can not provide prebuild Mac binaries (please see issue linked above).

given that homebrew would be the preferred way to install binaries on Mac anyway I wanted to ask for help to get zapcc added to homebrew.

thanks all !

I think the best way to start is to read the contributors section in https://docs.brew.sh.

the reason I was posting the question on discourse is precisely because I was not yet ready to create a PR especially because I do not know how the bottle process is handled/ could be tested from my end.

please also see my reply here

thanks for your quick reaction !

The bottle process is automated. If the formula build works for you it’ll work for Jenkins and the result will be a bottle.

so if I would create a formula that builds on my machine there should be no major blocker? (I’m on latest High Sierra so everything standard)

If your formula is accepted to homebrew bottles are build automatically.
