Less than 24 hours after my last post, in which I said I wanted to explore build systems other than make to generate my serverless wiki project notes files, Allan Odgaard writes a post on make that leads me to think I shouldn’t be too hasty in abandoning a software tool that’s stood the test of time. Allan is a smart guy who’s written some great stuff and sounds very authoritative when he says computer sciencey things like “directed acyclic graph.” Also, the last example in his post is a frighteningly close match to what I’m doing, so I think I’ll listen to him.
He says this post is the first of two on the topic of make. I look forward to Post 2 almost as much as I do to TextMate 2. Hope I don’t have to wait as long.
