Waf, previously known as BKsys, is an open source command-line software, a framework written in Python and designed for allowing users to configure, compile and install applications under the Linux operating system.

Waf is inspired by SCons and it replaces the entire GNU autotool chain, which includes automake, aclocal, autoconf, autoheader, make and libtool tools. It features various examples, including KDE, OCaml and Qt sample applications.

The software has several features, among which we can mention support for objective-caml, support for GNOME applications, fast rescan for incremental builds, coloured kernel-like output, object-oriented target declaration, and much more.

What's New in version 1.5.2
  • A new rule-based system has been added for declaring targets in a makefile-like system.
  • Several minor bugs have been fixed to allow the compilation on more systems (OS X and Cygwin).
  • New examples have been added to show how to use gcc for extracting dependencies (replacing the Waf preprocessor) or to use compilers to compile several files at once (batched builds).
