Handle metadata walk_keys relative to the target directory Don't process relative labels relative to root, process them relative to the target directory. To illustrate this, take the following example: //x:x //x:meta //x/z:z Where x is a target that depends on z, and meta is a generated_file target that sets walk_keys to just "z", the collection would fail because generated_file would try to resolve "z" (which is a relative path) against the root (i.e. as //z:z). This patches changes the logic to always resolve the walk_keys against the target current directory, i.e. in case of //x:meta it'll be resolved against //x which is correct since "z" is relative to that.

GN is a meta-build system that generates build files for Ninja.
Alternatively, you can build GN from source:
git clone https://gn.googlesource.com/gn cd gn python build/gen.py ninja -C out # To run tests: out/gn_unittests
On Windows, it is expected that
lib.exe can be found in
PATH, so you'll want to run from a Visual Studio command prompt, or similar.
On Linux and Mac, the default compiler is
clang++, a recent version is expected to be found in
PATH. This can be overridden by setting
There is a simple example in examples/simple_build directory that is a good place to get started with the minimal configuration.
For a maximal configuration see the Chromium setup:
and the Fuchsia setup:
If you find a bug, you can see if it is known or report it in the bug database.
GN uses Gerrit for code review. The short version of how to patch is:
Register at https://gn-review.googlesource.com. ... edit code ... ninja -C out && out/gn_unittests
Then, to upload a change for review:
git commit git cl upload --gerrit
When revising a change, use:
git commit --amend git cl upload --gerrit
which will add the new changes to the existing code review, rather than creating a new one.
