C++ Build Systems Ninja



The Ninja build system is described by its project website as "a small build system with a focus on speed." Ninja is designed to have its files generated by build system file generators, and takes a low-level approach to build systems, in contrast to higher-level build system managers like CMake or Meson.

Ninja is primarily written in C++ and Python, and was created as an alternative to the SCons build system for the Chromium project.
