2019-10-04build - remove evas-modules option as its rather pointlessCarsten Haitzler (Rasterman)
evas-modules affects evas engine modules if they are static or shared, but ecore evas modules are still modules... so all in all this doesnt help much as it still requires modules to be separate from the shared libs, thus disallowing for statically linking efl into an app anyway etc. etc. etc. ... so less options to deal with, less complexity. better.
2019-09-23build - update README and meson options to match echother in defaultsCarsten Haitzler (Rasterman)
update some defaults like move to gl-es by default, tslib off by default as this really makes efl simpler to confgure ... by default with less things to change to get stuff working.
2019-08-06build: Seprate same svg extension loaders between image and vector.Hermet Park
Currently, vector and image support svg format via different rountine. Our vector loader implemenst on its own drawing mechanism for svg, but in case of image loader, it depends on rsvg library. By Comparing both, our vector svg is winner at performance wise. we can remove rsvg routine later. For now, these two loader names are conflicted, we should separate their names with svg and rsvg.
2019-07-15build - update/improve meson option strings to be short and descriptiveCarsten Haitzler (Rasterman)
this should make it easier to know what an option does and not be redundant in the description.

2019-06-21evas vector: support json loader for rlottie integration.Hermet Park
Summary: Introduce a new evas json loader to support lottie animation. This json loader uses rlottie library which is a new github open project. These days most ui frameworks (windowpws, skia, qt, xamarin, react, nativescript) supports lottie, the rlottie was designed to support lottie as a standalone library and compatible with efl as well. To enable this,please install rlottie library then remove json disabler in meson_options.txt For more information, See lottie/rlottie project and its a introdcution article: Co-authored-by: JunsuChoi <> {D8941} {D8944} Reviewers: #committers, jsuya, bu5hm4n Subscribers: bu5hm4n, cedric, #reviewers, #committers Tags: #efl Differential Revision:
2019-06-20build: remove no longer needed eolian-bootstrap targetStefan Schmidt
This basically reverts ac606105. It was added to help the windows cross builds on our CI. It served a purpose but with the requirements on native eet, edje_cc and up to elm_prefs_cc we end up with a full native build of EFL in most cases anyway. A full meson build of EFL with examples, bindings and tests disabled is actually quite fast and makes sure we have the latest needed on the CI for the cross build. I switched over to this a week ago, so we can get rid of this extra target to maintain. Differential Revision: Signed-off-by: Stefan Schmidt <>
2019-04-11mono-docs: Allow embedding external examplesXavi Artigas
Summary: New option added to eolian_gen: -e <dir> This specifies a directory to search for examples. If a file is found with the same name as an EFL C# class (e.g. Efl.Ui.Button.cs) or as an EFL C# method or property (e.g. Efl.IText.Text.cs, Efl.IText.SetText.cs) its full contents will be embedded in the documentation for that class or method within <example> and <code> tags. This is, in turn, is parsed by DocFX and shown in Example boxes in the generated pages. If an example file is not found, no examples are embedded for that object. If -e is not used, no examples are embedded for any object. New option added to meson: mono-examples-dir to point to the examples directory. This directory is then passed to eolian_mono through -e. Do not use it (or define it to nothing) to disable example embedding. No performance drop has been observed because of these extra tests. Right now examples can only be given for base classes, not for derived ones (i.e. Efl.IText.Text but not Efl.Ui.Button.Text). This will be addressed in a later commit. Feature Depends on D8587 Test Plan: Create an examples folder and put some files in it: ``` mkdir /tmp/examples echo 'var button = new Efl.Ui.Button();' > /tmp/examples/Efl.Ui.Button.cs echo 'button.AutoRepeatEnabled = true;' > /tmp/examples/Efl.Ui.IAutorepeat.AutorepeatEnabled.cs echo 'button.SetAutoRepeatEnabled(true);' > /tmp/examples/Efl.Ui.IAutorepeat.SetAutorepeatEnabled.cs ``` Configure meson to embed examples and build: ``` meson configure -Dmono-examples-dir=/tmp/examples ninja ``` Examine the generated efl_ui_button.eo.cs file to see embedded <example> tags, or run DocFX and bask in the glory of documentation pages with examples: ``` cd doc/docfx ./ ``` Reviewers: lauromoura, felipealmeida, vitor.sousa, zmike, bu5hm4n Reviewed By: vitor.sousa Subscribers: cedric, #reviewers, #committers Tags: #efl Differential Revision:

2019-01-10meson: modify options for enabling the bindingsWonki Kim
bindings are added as subdir by foreaching a array defined in at root. then meson checks a option which has the same name of the binding. this patch appends a new option for selecting bindings to build. [howto] *as-is meson build.asis/ -Dmono=false -Dcxx=true ninja -C build.asis/ *to-be menson build.tobe/ -Dbindings=luajit,cxx ninja -C build.tobe/ it is imposibble to use this wrongly because meson raise a error if arguments are not in a predefined list that described in meson_options.txt. for more information, refer to and also take a look at meson_options.txt please.

2018-11-16meson: cleanup the native-cpu optimization build codeMarcel Hollerbach
you were not able to disable the header checks, so if the header was not there it indicated that you could turn it of. However, the option check was in the has_header if not outside of it. Further more, header checks are done in the subdirectory that is done for header checks, unneccessary cpu_**** flags are removed, global optimization options are added to the global_arguments instead of just the package_c_args, which leads to the fact that also all binaries etc. are build by default with those optimization flags. This also reduces the amount of options to a minimum of 1 option, to just control if there should be the optimization or not. This also changes from host_maschine to target_mschine, since we probebly want to enable the optimization for the target maschine, not the host. Differential Revision:

2018-10-02here comes mesonMarcel Hollerbach
a new shiny buildtool that currently completes in the total of ~ 4 min.. 1 min. conf time 2:30 min. build time Where autotools takes: 1:50 min. conf time 3:40 min. build time. meson was taken because it went quite good for enlightenment, and is a traction gaining system that is also used by other mayor projects. Additionally, the DSL that is defined my meson makes the configuration of the builds a lot easier to read. Further informations can be gathered from the README.meson Right now, bindings & windows support are missing. It is highly recommented to use meson 0.48 due to optimizations in meson that reduced the time the meson call would need. Co-authored-by: Mike Blumenkrantz <> Differential Revision: Depends on D7011
