then copy it to sources folder?
let's say I have a small library folder at C:\mylibrary\D where I want
to use dir.d from it. How do I add that file dependence to dub? But I do
not want to that file be passed directly to dmd, I want to that file be
copied to application's source folder (so it's easy to distribuite, with
the dependences together as possible) then compiled. So, what I want to
some extension is dub work with loca files.
Is this possible to do solely with dub? I know I can easily write a
script to run before dub which copies the dependence files from
C:\mylibrary to application's source but I'm looking for a more elegant
approach as possible; I'm afraid of rewriting a makefile-like soon (I
find cmake/make/makefiles just ugly).
You can use "preGenerateCommands" or "preBuildCommands" to run arbitrary
commands before Dub builds the project . Alternativly you can use the
"import" expression , together with the "stringImportPaths" Dub build
setting. The "import" expression will embed the file into the executable
as a string literal.
