Welcome to scikit-build

scikit-build is an improved build system generator for CPython C/C++/Fortran/Cython extensions. It provides better support for additional compilers, build systems, cross compilation, and locating dependencies and their associated build requirements.

The scikit-build package is fundamentally just glue between the setuptools Python module and CMake.

To get started, see this example. For more examples, see scikit-build-sample-projects.
