Subject: maven-like tooling for kawa
Date: Sat, 22 Aug 2020 23:45:52 +0300	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Good evening,

I guess no need for an introduction about what maven is, and why people in
the jvm world use it. I feel currently, kawa is missing an equivalent to
it. Sure, maven could be used now for getting ahold of java
dependencies' jars (using dependency:copy-dependencies), however what about
other niceties, such as

* running scheme files while including those dependency jars on classpath
* packaging (compiling scheme files first before bundling it all together)
* testing (automatically discovering and running scheme test files in some
known directory, what in java is src/testing/java)
* expanding dependencies gathering not only for java libs, but r7rs scheme
libs too (particularly thinking about snow), with configuration managed in
uniform or at least similar manner

I have a public facing example project of tackling these points using
combination of ant and maven at
<> ,
however I'm not entirely happy with this, and I'd find a kawa-specialized
tool a cleaner approach.

Have you discussed a topic of maven-like tooling for kawa? Any general
thoughts -- ranging from general functionality to how the configuration
would look? I plan having a go at prototyping such tool, and before I start
I though gathering some thoughts about it.
