Information is actual for series 0.14

On all platforms, Stellarium uses a two-step building process:

  • CMake processes a set of project files (CMakeLists.txt) to generate a set of scripts for make (if you are using Qt Creator, it runs CMake when you open the project);
  • make performs the steps detailed in the scripts, calling the compiler, the linker and other utility programs to build Stellarium's executables, libraries and data files.

This page explains the various command-line options that can be passed to CMake and make to produce different build configurations.

Contents

[edit] CMake options

CMake caches the current project configuration in CMakeCache.txt, including the options passed to it at the command line. This is useful, as it saves typing the next time you invoke CMake for the project, but it can also be annoying if you are not careful.

The proper way to change the options is to pass them to CMake on the command line, instead of editing directly the CMakeCache file. This way, the make files will be updated in case there is some hidden dependency on the value of the option you are passing.

For example, the next command is a first invocation of CMake for Stellarium that configures the build of a development version for Windows in Release mode which based on revision 8000:

 cmake -G "MSYS Makefiles" -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=C:/stellarium -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release -DSTELLARIUM_RELEASE_BUILD=0 -DBZR_REVISION=8000 ../..

For example, the next command is a first invocation of CMake for Stellarium that configures the build of a development version for Windows in Release mode which has human readable version as 0.14.50.5:

 cmake -G "MSYS Makefiles" -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=C:/stellarium -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release -DSTELLARIUM_RELEASE_BUILD=0 -DSTELLARIUM_VERSION=0.14.50.5 ../..

Qt Creator provides a wrapper around CMake - the CMake Wizard. It is automatically launched when Stellarium's CMakeLists.txt is opened for the first time, and it can be launched at any time from the "Build" -> "Run CMake" menu.

[edit] BUILD_STATIC_PLUGINS

Default value: 1.

This option defines that plugins should be compiled statically and linked to the main program. If this option has value 1 then for BUILD_DYNAMIC_PLUGINS should be value 0.

[edit] BUILD_DYNAMIC_PLUGINS

Default value: 0.

This option defines that plugins should be compiled dynamically. If this option has value 1 then for BUILD_STATIC_PLUGINS should be value 0.

[edit] BZR_REVISION

This option is used together with STELLARIUM_RELEASE_BUILD option and sets Bazaar's revision for package.

[edit] STELLARIUM_VERSION

This option is used together with STELLARIUM_RELEASE_BUILD option and sets version for package. It was introduced in version 0.14.1.

[edit] CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE

Possible values: None, Debug, GProf, Valgrind, Release, RelWithDebInfo, MinSizeRel.

Default value: Debug

Possible values:

Release
Release mode - the binary package does not include debug characters and some of the source code is ignored; this mode is the default for users.
Debug
Debug mode - the binary package includes debug characters and debug macros in the source code are not ignored; this mode is the default for developers.
RelWithDebInfo
Release mode, but the binary package includes debug characters; this mode is for developers and users.
GProf
Support for GNU gprof profiler - binary package includes debug characters for profiler; this mode is for developers
Valgrind
Support for Valgrind - binary package includes debug characters for memory debugging, memory leak detection, and profiling; this mode is for developers.
MinSizeRel
Release mode - binary package optimized for minimal size.

[edit] CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX

This option sets a prefix for the installation of the binary package location. Used on Linux to set the location for the software installation, building from source code, the default location is /usr/local but if you want to install software elsewhere such as into /opt you need use CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/opt

[edit] CMAKE_C_COMPILER

This option sets a custom path to C compiler. For example if you have installed GCC and Clang; and wish to use the Clang compiler you need use CMAKE_C_COMPILER=/usr/bin/clang

[edit] CMAKE_CXX_COMPILER

This option sets a custom path to the C++ compiler. For example; if you have installed GCC and Clang; to use the Clang compiler you need use CMAKE_CXX_COMPILER=/usr/bin/clang

[edit] ENABLE_NLS

Default value: 1.

This option activates translation with gettext.

[edit] ENABLE_SOUND[1]

Default value: 0.

This option activates sound support.The default value is 0 because sound is not available on all platforms and may require 3rd party software.

[edit] ENABLE_MEDIA[2]

Default value: 0.

This option activates sound and video support.The default value is 0 because sound is not available on all platforms and may require 3rd party software.

[edit] ENABLE_SCRIPTING

Default value: 1.

This option activates the scripting feature.

[edit] ENABLE_SCRIPT_CONSOLE

Default value: 1.

This option activates the script edit console.

[edit] STELLARIUM_GUI_MODE[3]

Possible values: Standard, None

Default value: Standard.

This option set a type of GUI for using in Stellarium.

[edit] STELLARIUM_RELEASE_BUILD[4]

Default value: 1.

This option flags the build as an official release.

[edit] USE_PLUGIN_*

These options control whether the given plugin is built. For example to build the Historical Supernovae plugin you need use USE_PLUGIN_SUPERNOVAE=1.

USE_PLUGIN_HELLOSTELMODULE
(Default value: 0) The Hello StelModule example plugin.
USE_PLUGIN_ANGLEMEASURE
(Default value: 1) The Angle Measure plugin.
USE_PLUGIN_COMPASSMARKS
(Default value: 1) The Compass Marks plugin.
USE_PLUGIN_SATELLITES
(Default value: 1) The Satellites plugin.
USE_PLUGIN_TELESCOPECONTROL
(Default value: 1) The Telescope Control plugin.
USE_PLUGIN_LOGBOOK
(Default value: 0) The Logbook plugin - unfinished, development suspended indefinitely.
USE_PLUGIN_OCULARS
(Default value: 1) The Oculars plugin.
USE_PLUGIN_SVMT
(Default value: 0) The Survey Monitoring and Visualization Tool, a plug-in for professional astronomers developed separately from Stellarium. (I.e. its code is not in the main repository.)
USE_PLUGIN_TEXTUSERINTERFACE
(Default value: 1) The Text User Interface plugin.
USE_PLUGIN_TIMEZONECONFIGURATION
(Default value: 1) The Time Zone plugin.
USE_PLUGIN_VIRGO

USE_PLUGIN_SUPERNOVAE
(Default value: 1) The Historical Supernovae plugin.
USE_PLUGIN_QUASARS
(Default value: 1) The Quasars plugin.

USE_PLUGIN_EXOPLANETS
(Default value: 1) The Exoplanets plugin.
USE_PLUGIN_OBSERVABILITY

USE_PLUGIN_ARCHAEOLINES
(Default value: 1) The Archaeo Lines plugin.
USE_PLUGIN_EQUATIONOFTIME
(Default value: 1) The Equation Of Time plugin.
USE_PLUGIN_FOV

USE_PLUGIN_POINTERCOORDINATES
(Default value: 1) The Pointer Coordinates plugin.
USE_PLUGIN_SCENERY3D
(Default value: 1) The 3D Scenery plugin.

[edit] Make targets

Make groups various tasks as "targets". Starting make without any arguments causes make to build the default target - in our case, building Stellarium, its tests, the localization files, etc.

To list all possible targets, use the "help" target:

make help

Other useful targets:

make install

Installation of all binaries and related files to the directory determined by CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX. Straight installation on Linux, first step of creating an installer package on Windows.

make test

Launch the suite of test executables.

make macosx_bundle

Package a bundle for Mac OS X.

make package

This option make package for Linux.
