xmake v2.2.1 released, Support Qt, WDK and Cuda Compilation Environments

2018-06-17
         

To make xmake more convenient and flexible to support other compilation environments, I spent four months to upgrade custom rule rules.

Users can now implement various compilation rules by customizing the rules, and xmake also has built-in common compilation rules that can be applied directly to the current project to support QT, WDK driver and Cuda compilation environments.

Introduction to New features

Qt Program

Create an empty project:

$ xmake create -l c++ -t console_qt test
$ xmake create -l c++ -t static_qt test
$ xmake create -l c++ -t shared_qt test
$ xmake create -l c++ -t quickapp_qt test

xmake will detect Qt SDK automatically and we can also set the SDK directory manually.

$ xmake f --qt=~/Qt/Qt5.9.1

If you want to known more information, you can see #160.

Static Library
target("qt_static_library")
    add_rules("qt.static")

Cuda Program

Create an empty project:

$ xmake create -P test -l cuda
$ cd test
$ xmake
target("cuda_console")
    set_kind("binary")
    add_files("src/*.cu")

    -- generate SASS code for each SM architecture
    for _, sm in ipairs({"30", "35", "37", "50", "52", "60", "61", "70"}) do
        add_cuflags("-gencode arch=compute_" .. sm .. ",code=sm_" .. sm)
        add_ldflags("-gencode arch=compute_" .. sm .. ",code=sm_" .. sm)
    end

    -- generate PTX code from the highest SM architecture to guarantee forward-compatibility
    sm = "70"
    add_cuflags("-gencode arch=compute_" .. sm .. ",code=compute_" .. sm)
    add_ldflags("-gencode arch=compute_" .. sm .. ",code=compute_" .. sm)

xmake will detect Cuda SDK automatically and we can also set the SDK directory manually.

$ xmake f --cuda=/usr/local/cuda-9.1/ 
$ xmake

If you want to known more information, you can see #158.

WDK Driver Program

xmake will detect WDK automatically and we can also set the WDK directory manually.

$ xmake f --wdk="G:\Program Files\Windows Kits\10" -c
$ xmake

If you want to known more information, you can see #159.

UMDF Driver Program
target("echo")
    add_rules("wdk.driver", "wdk.env.umdf")
    add_files("driver/*.c") 
    add_files("driver/*.inx")
    add_includedirs("exe")

target("app")
    add_rules("wdk.binary", "wdk.env.umdf")
    add_files("exe/*.cpp") 
KMDF Driver Program
target("nonpnp")
    add_rules("wdk.driver", "wdk.env.kmdf")
    add_values("wdk.tracewpp.flags", "-func:TraceEvents(LEVEL,FLAGS,MSG,...)", "-func:Hexdump((LEVEL,FLAGS,MSG,...))")
    add_files("driver/*.c", {rule = "wdk.tracewpp"}) 
    add_files("driver/*.rc")

target("app")
    add_rules("wdk.binary", "wdk.env.kmdf")
    add_files("exe/*.c") 
    add_files("exe/*.inf")
WDM Driver Program
target("kcs")
    add_rules("wdk.driver", "wdk.env.wdm")
    add_values("wdk.man.flags", "-prefix Kcs")
    add_values("wdk.man.resource", "kcsCounters.rc")
    add_values("wdk.man.header", "kcsCounters.h")
    add_values("wdk.man.counter_header", "kcsCounters_counters.h")
    add_files("*.c", "*.rc", "*.man") 
target("msdsm")
    add_rules("wdk.driver", "wdk.env.wdm")
    add_values("wdk.tracewpp.flags", "-func:TracePrint((LEVEL,FLAGS,MSG,...))")
    add_files("*.c", {rule = "wdk.tracewpp"}) 
    add_files("*.rc", "*.inf")
    add_files("*.mof|msdsm.mof")
    add_files("msdsm.mof", {values = {wdk_mof_header = "msdsmwmi.h"}}) 
Package Driver

We can run the following command to generate a .cab driver package.

$ xmake [p|package]
$ xmake [p|package] -o outputdir

The output files like:

  - drivers
    - sampledsm
       - debug/x86/sampledsm.cab
       - release/x64/sampledsm.cab
       - debug/x86/sampledsm.cab
       - release/x64/sampledsm.cab
Driver Signing

The driver signing is disabled when we compile driver in default case, but we can add set_values("wdk.sign.mode") to enable test/release sign.

TestSign

We can use test certificate of xmake to do testsign, but please run $xmake l utils.wdk.testcert install as admin to install a test certificate first (only once)!

target("msdsm")
    add_rules("wdk.driver", "wdk.env.wdm")
    set_values("wdk.sign.mode", "test")

Or we set a valid certificate thumbprint to do it in local machine.

target("msdsm")
    add_rules("wdk.driver", "wdk.env.wdm")
    set_values("wdk.sign.mode", "test")
    set_values("wdk.sign.thumbprint", "032122545DCAA6167B1ADBE5F7FDF07AE2234AAA")

We can also do testsign via setting store/company info.

target("msdsm")
    add_rules("wdk.driver", "wdk.env.wdm")
    set_values("wdk.sign.mode", "test")
    set_values("wdk.sign.store", "PrivateCertStore")
    set_values("wdk.sign.company", "tboox.org(test)")
ReleaseSign

We can set a certificate file for release signing.

target("msdsm")
    add_rules("wdk.driver", "wdk.env.wdm")
    set_values("wdk.sign.mode", "release")
    set_values("wdk.sign.company", "xxxx")
    set_values("wdk.sign.certfile", path.join(os.projectdir(), "xxxx.cer"))
Support Low-version System

We can set wdk.env.winver to generate a driver package that is compatible with a low version system.

set_values("wdk.env.winver", "win10")
set_values("wdk.env.winver", "win10_rs3")
set_values("wdk.env.winver", "win81")
set_values("wdk.env.winver", "win8")
set_values("wdk.env.winver", "win7")
set_values("wdk.env.winver", "win7_sp1")
set_values("wdk.env.winver", "win7_sp2")
set_values("wdk.env.winver", "win7_sp3")

We can also set windows version for WDK driver program:

$ xmake f --wdk_winver=[win10_rs3|win8|win7|win7_sp1]
$ xmake

WinSDK Application Program

target("usbview")
    add_rules("win.sdk.application")

    add_files("*.c", "*.rc")
    add_files("xmlhelper.cpp", {rule = "win.sdk.dotnet"})
