We present “Scikit-build”, an improved build system generator for CPython C/C++/Fortran/Cython extensions. It provides improved support for additional compilers, build systems, cross compilation, and locating dependencies and determining their build requirements over distutils/setuptools. We also describe how ITK and VTK C++ scientific libraries were updated to make use of scikit-build to ultimately be published as wheels.
I am looking for editors/curators to help with branches of the tree. Please send me an email if you are interested.
