Premake whopping rocks! (or how Boost Build whopping sucks, or how to build Luabind for iOS proper)

Last time I wrote about how to build Luabind on OS X. Well, it turned out that was only half the battle won. Building Luabind for iOS (ARMV7) architecture just plain doesn’t work. It seems like some people have managed to make it work but none of what I have found actually worked. If you are reading this, I suppose you are also tired of jumping through hoops just to compile the damn thing, well, Premake to the rescue.

Let me tell you, this is how building stuff in C++ is meant to work:

Just create a file premake4.lua

-- premake4.lua
solution "luabind"
    configurations { "Release" }
    project "luabind"
        language "C++"
        kind "StaticLib"
        flags { "Optimize" }
        includedirs { ".", "/usr/local/include", "/where/is/your/lua" }
        files { "src/**" }


$ premake4 xcode3
$ xcodebuild -sdk iphonesimulator -configuration Release -arch i386
$ xcodebuild -sdk iphoneos -configuration Release -arch armv7

Boost Build whopping sucks. Premake is written by one guy and this turns out to be so trivial (as it should be).

Hope it helps.
