Cinema 4D Version:
For my personal projects, I've been using Makefiles for a very long time now (around 2 years) on Windows
and Mac to compile my C++ plugins. This was working great but **make **often gave me headache.
You can find my makefiles here: https://github.com/NiklasRosenstein/c4dmake
Starting today, I will use my own build system called "Creator" which is a Python based tool and it outputs
ninja build files. If you don't know about ninja, I suggest you check it out. It's a very fast build tool, but
it requires a meta build software to write the build definitions file, and that is what **Creator **is.
I just wanted to share this with others, maybe it will be useful for some. I have seen some posts in the
past about alternative ways to compile Cinema 4D plugins using Makefiles and CMake and I want to throw
my method in the pool as well.
