#8094 closed enhancement (fixed)

Build: generate dependency maps

Reported by: James Burke Owned by: James Burke
Priority: high Milestone: 1.7
Component: BuildSystem Version: 1.2.1
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:


It would be useful if the build system could generate a dependency map that specifies what modules depend on what other modules.

This could then be used for some quick build optimizations: detecting what files changed since last build, then figure out what layers/files needed to be rebuilt. That rebuild process is probably a different ticket -- the first building block is building the dependency maps.

I build one of these around the time of DDD using the build libs and js. You can find a copy here:

Milestone: future1.7

Probably you meant 1.7 for this. (Or 1.8 at the latest.)

comment:4 Changed 10 years ago by ben hockey

sure - i definitely meant 1.7 but how do milestones matter for code that's already been released?

Thanks. Well, we overload "milestone" to mean both "planned version to fix" (for open tickets) and "version fixed" for closed tickets.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
