Exposing SMTK for use in external projects¶
SMTK generates a file named
SMTKConfig.cmake that allows other projects to find and use SMTK.
This file is installed to
External projects can add SMTK with
Then, when building external projects, set CMake’s
SMTK_DIR to the directory containing
Note that you may point external projects to the top level of an SMTK build directory or
an install tree’s
lib/cmake/SMTK directory; both contain an
suitable for use by external projects.
The former is suitable for development, since you may be modifying both SMTK and a project
that depends on it — having to re-install SMTK after each change becomes tedious.
The latter is suitable for creating packages and distributing software.
If you add a new dependency to SMTK,
CMake/smtkConfig.cmake.in (which is used to create
SMTKConfig.cmake) should be configured to find the dependent package so that consumers
of SMTK have access to it without additional work.
If you add a new option to SMTK, it should be exposed in
