DUB-GENERATE(1) The D Language Foundation DUB-GENERATE(1)

NAME

dub - Package and build management system for D

SYNOPSIS

dub generate <generator> [<package>[@<version-spec>]] OPTIONS...

DESCRIPTION

Generates project files using one of the supported generators:

visuald - VisualD project files

sublimetext - SublimeText project file

cmake - CMake build scripts

build - Builds the package directly

An optional package name can be given to generate a different package than the root/CWD package.

OPTIONS

-b,
Specifies the type of build to perform. Note that setting the DFLAGS environment variable will override the build type with custom flags. Possible names: debug (default), plain, release, release-debug, release-nobounds, unittest, profile, profile-gc, docs, ddox, cov, unittest-cov, syntax and custom types
-c,
Builds the specified configuration. Configurations can be defined in dub.json
--override-config=VALUE
Uses the specified configuration for a certain dependency. Can be specified multiple times. Format: --override-config=<dependency>/<config>
--compiler=VALUE
Specifies the compiler binary to use (can be a path). Arbitrary pre- and suffixes to the identifiers below are recognized (e.g. ldc2 or dmd-2.063) and matched to the proper compiler type: dmd, gdc, ldc, gdmd, ldmd
-a,
Force a different architecture (e.g. x86 or x86_64)
-d,
Define the specified debug version identifier when building - can be used multiple times
--nodeps
Do not resolve missing dependencies before building
--build-mode=VALUE
Specifies the way the compiler and linker are invoked. Valid values: separate (default), allAtOnce, singleFile
--single
Treats the package name as a filename. The file must contain a package recipe comment.
--force-remove
Deprecated option that does nothing.
--filter-versions
[Experimental] Filter version identifiers and debug version identifiers to improve build cache efficiency.
--combined
Tries to build the whole project in a single compiler run.
--print-builds
Prints the list of available build types
--print-configs
Prints the list of available configurations
--print-platform
Prints the identifiers for the current build platform as used for the build fields in dub.json
