Original issue 1403 created by magreenblatt on 2014-10-14T21:21:37.000Z:
The Chromium team is converting project files from gyp format to gn format. The same conversion needs to be performed for CEF's gyp files.
Gn support for project formats other than Ninja is expected to be limited. It may be necessary to migrate the CEF binary distribution to a project generator other than gn (for example, cmake) in order to continue providing MSVS/Xcode/make projects on various platforms.
