CMake build for Skia

This directory contains experiemental CMake build files for Skia. They are primarily targeted at building Skia as it would be shipped, not at day-to-day Skia development.


git clone
cd skia/cmake
cmake . -G Ninja     # Other CMake generators should work fine.
ls -l libskia.* example
open example.png || xdg-open example.png

If that works, you should see “Hello World!” with a green-to-purple gradient.

Currently supported platforms

(None. This is still super experimental.)

Currently maybe-kinda-working platforms

  • x86-64 Mac OS X
  • x86-64 Ubuntu 15.04
  • x86-64 Windows 10, with extra caveats:
    • Compiles against DirectWrite, not GDI, for fonts
    • Configure with cmake . -G "Visual Studio 14 2015" .
    • Compile with cmake --build . --config Release .
    • Still has too many warnings.
    • Poorly tested as yet.
