you’d think with all the whiz bang great rad tools someone would have written something better that make (after all it’s over 30 years old) It seems that the best we can do though it different. Except for maven! Maven is like make, but worse. You can write new rules but you have to be a wizard to do so and god forbid you want to do something non-standard. Sure there’s a plugin for it, but it doesn’t actually work correctly or do what you actually want. Plus depending on POM definitions written by the kind of asshat who uses maven means doing what i just did, downloading glassfish!
Asshats of the year maven team!
