Build system request (ST2)

Build system request (ST2)

Postby Marciano on Sun Feb 27, 2011 3:37 pm

Would it be possible to have one of the following two improvements to the build system:

1. a way to invoke ST(2) commands (i.e. Python scripts), rather than make or other command-line binaries?

2. platform-dependent build recipes.

Example: for the LaTeX plugin, I use texify on Windows, which works perfectly. On OSX and Linux, I can use latexmk instead (I understand that MikTeX does include latexmk, but some forum posts I found suggest that it's a bit buggy). Even using latexmk, I need to use different configuration files (latexmkrc) on different platforms, e.g. to invoke the pdf viewer that is best for the platform. I am sure there are other use cases.

Thanks!

Both are great ideas, I'll put them in the next dev build.
