Expand environment variables in definition of CMake generator

    XMLWordPrintable

Details

    Description

      Expand environment variables in definition of CMake generator, so that one can set the generator to the value of an environment variable.

      Justification:

      I have a number of Jenkins jobs using CMake that are multi-configuration projects have to build on both Windows and Linux. Because the environments are different I have to use different CMake generators on Windows and Linux (CMake doesn't support "Unix Makefiles" on Windows or "Visual Studio 9 2008" on Linux). At the moment the only way to do this is to use conditional build steps. This means that I have to define everything about the CMake step twice. This would be much cleaner if I could set an environment variable in the node configuration (e.g. CMakeDefaultGenerator) and then set the "Makefile Generator" entry to ${CMakeDefaultGenerator} in the configuration of the CMake builder.

      Environment variables already work in some of the other configuration fields of the CMake builder. For example on Windows I am setting my make command to "${Msbuild35Exe} /t:rebuild Project.sln"
