  1. Getting Started

Waf is system to build software, documentation or handle any task that requires a set of commands to produce a result.

We have a fantastic book available called The Waf Book that covers all the how-to and internals of the project.

Start from Section 2 Download and installation and continue on in the book to get a good idea of how Waf works. Don't worry about picking it up all the first time there are no tests at the end! :)

It is important that you are able to understand the high-level structure of Waf. Going through the exercises will help in understanding the logic and methodology behind a good wscript.

Please feel free to contact us via IRC? if you have any questions.
