Current State (August 2014)

jsc built and ran, no ftl WebCore built on Mac (probably not completely - libWebCore.a)

cmake .. -DPORT=Mac && make -j8

Proposed Timeline on Windows

Get WinLauncher working Verify equivalent output & testing Update internal testing & infrastructure Remove *.vcxproj

Proposed Timeline on Mac

Get MiniBrowser working on Mac CMake build bot Get Safari working on Mac (Start use by engineers) Verify equivalent output & testing Update internal testing & infrastructure (Don't hold your breath) Remove *.xcodeproj (???)

Issues

Directories - MAKE PORT SPECIFIC

WebKitBuild/Release/jsc WebKitBuild/Release/JavaScriptCore.framework/JavaScriptCore (frameworks) WebKitBuild/bin/jsc WebKitBuild/lib/libJavaScriptCore.dylib

Xcode field test (can still use Xcode) Unsupported features? iOS? Few Reviewers (none at Apple)

Gyuyoung Kim Ossy Martin Robinson Rakuco Zan? (cross compiling)

New Apple reviewers?

Brent? Chris? dbates?

Feature defines conditional on OS?

Benefits

Faster build (jsc 4 min -> 3 min) Dependency tracking Not breaking EFL/GTK+ as often Not reviewing Xcode changes Centralized feature define list

New possibilities

Distributed build MinGW / Clang on Windows New Ports
