Request: OSX - ability to use debug and release builds of static library in a module


#1

Can we please get this? In windows I’m using MT and MTd folders, why don’t we have a Debug and Release folder in OSX? for example: libs/MacOSX/{arch}/{run-time}


#2

The binary section of a module was primarily designed without build configurations in mind, but we could certainly add them…

The difficulty here is if someone has created a custom configuration like “SmallSize” or “WithLogging” - there’s currently no convenient way of indicating which pre-built library you want to link against.


#3

True that, but I think at least debug and release config would certainly be useful, and it would match the way binaries in modules are treated in Windows. Custom builds can of course be linked against manually.
Thank you!
