Google just released Bazel, it can help engineers build software faster, and correctly. Bazel can be used to build client and server software for Android and available for Linux and OS X. Bazel are being labelled as a public beta, Google’s engineers have been using it for a very long time. As betas go, it’s a very thoroughly tried and tested one.
Bazel is Google’s build tool which the company has been using for building many important services along with public web apps, but the company said it can be used for small software builds too. Bazel has a set of built-in rules which lets engineers build Java, C++, Python and Objective-C apps right out of the box. What’s more, its rule framework — dubbed Skylark — lets engineers develop and share their own build rules for other platforms and coding languages. The tool can be used for building both Android and iOS apps.
Windows users still need to wait, there are no windows version available. But Google is making Windows support a priority and will hopefully make it available by the time Bazel is out of beta and officially launches as version 1.0.0.
