SCons / FltkFluidBuilder

The SCons wiki has moved to

The FltkFluidBuilder creates C++ source and header files from Fluid's .fl files. Fluid is the graphical GUI editor of the GUI toolkit FLTK. Simply add the .fl files to the list of sources to be compiled.

sources = Split("""main.cpp UserInterface.fl""")

The builder will create two files: fluid_UserInterface.h and fluid_UserInterface.cxx and adds them to the list of sources to be built.

Here's the builder and emitter + registration:

import os
import Scons.Util

# emitter to add the generated .h file to the dependencies
def fluidEmitter(target, source, env):
  adjustixes = SCons.Util.adjustixes
  file = SCons.Util.splitext(str(source[0].name))[0]
  file = os.path.join(str(target[0].get_dir()), file)
  target.append(adjustixes(file, "fluid_", ".h"))
  return target, source

fluidBuilder = Builder(action = "cd ${SOURCE.dir} && " + 
                                "fluid -o fluid_${SOURCE.filebase}.cxx " + 
                                "-h fluid_${SOURCE.filebase}.h -c ${} ",
                        emitter = fluidEmitter,
                        src_suffix = '.fl',
                        suffix = '.cxx',
                        prefix = 'fluid_')

# register builder
env.Append( BUILDERS = { 'Fluid': fluidBuilder } )

# add builder to the builders for shared and static objects, 
# so we can use all sources in one list
shared, static = SCons.Tool.createObjBuilders(env)
