INI / SCRIPT file for a Library

is there a possibility ( or idea for future ) INI file for library

example: github project “ABC”, suport X,Y,Z functions…
import to project_dir/lib as “LIB_ABC”
The INI file( or library PY script, in this folder “/lib/LIB_ABC” ) to be how to compile - defines, includes, sources from this “library/folder”

Defines, includes and sources for a library are already controlled by the library.json file of the library.

This even supports extraScript for custom Pytho logic if the static build flags etc. are not enough.

Thanks Max, will test…

this extraScript is global/project or local/library - I am referring to local, library only

extraScript is for the local library, not extra_scripts for the project.

You can see an example here.


NICE - work… Thanks Max
need 2 files: library.json and script

“name”: “SomeLib”,
“version”: “0.0.0”,
“build”: {
"extraScript": ""

@maxgerhardt in extra_script is valid env.BuildLibrary(… filter ) ?
for the library in “this” folder

the question is: how to select the files for compilation

Yes, you can give it a source filter expression.

The BuildSources function has the same signature. Example with source filter:

Has the same format as src_filter.

library FOO ( include & src )
SRC folder is auto-scan for files and compiled library have temp-random-project file name

so… how to exclude files from SRC folder?

Oh I think in this case you just want to use a source filter.
