I'm bad at marketing - I know.. :)
You can use Hamster to:
- generate SCons scripts on the fly
- generate Makefiles on the fly
- just Do it All (no dependencies)
The mishap is mostly due to versions, I will need to check that the
latest on LuaForge has the stand-alone features.
I should be using Hamster myself, but I am not. My conception has
become, Makefiles with Lua scripts "baked in" can be very, very
versatile as such. But had I any larger scale project needing a
build system (and a dislike to Python?) I'd give Hamster a go. It is
'ready', has no known severe bugs, and out for grabs.
This is the end of Open Source projects; they become "ready" and
still no-one uses them. That's life. :)
...with a somewhat I-haa kind-of attitude

Uh, last time I used Hamster (last month) it was a thin translator
from a Scons-like-lua to the Scons-actual-Python, which is entirely
not what it's advertised as. From the project description (and
what you said above) it seems like an entirely standalone Lua SCons
replacement. In actuality it's an SCons Python generator for
people addicted to Lua.
Basically, what's the point of a Lua build tool if all it does is
have the exact same API as SCons and still requires SCons and
Python? I'd rather just use SCons.
Hopefully I got this all wrong and there actually is a Hamster
which doesn't need SCons or Python (since, the one I have still
needs SCons and then still needs Python).
