Posted by chathaway on Aug. 22, 2018, 7:58 p.m.

To use libraries with CMake, its much easier if there is a package for it. Below is a script which can be used to locate YottaDB using CMake, and make it much easier to build with.

In your CMakeLists.txt, add:

SET(CMAKE_MODULE_PATH ${CMAKE_MODULE_PATH} "${CMAKE_SOURCE_DIR}/cmake/")
find_package(YOTTADB REQUIRED)

In cmake/FindYOTTADB.cmake:
