msbuild for linux? RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • it would be really nice to be able to use msbuild on a Linux machine to build real c++ code. I'm not talking about building Linux from a windows machine through some magical port or something. I'm talking about real building of real c++ projects using .vcxproj files (i.e. msbuild format) on a linux machine without any windows OS getting in the way.

    Is anyone or has anyone doing this?

    I take it would require new versions of cpp common default props files and their associated target files too.

    I ask because the state of c++ on linux is pretty old (i.e. dinosaur technology right now). The whole c++ world has essentially gone backwards to the old clunker CMake which is a garbage make system.
