Embedthis Bit

Embedthis Bit replaces both autoconf and make with a single utility: bit. Bit provides a higher level of abstraction for easily specifying the targets to build (libraries and executables). It can build directly on Linux, Mac, or Windows and cross compile for other platforms. It can also generate native projects for Visual Studio, XCode, Make, Nmake, and shell scripts. Bit builds quickly without the complexity of autoconf and make. Bit projects are described using JavaScript, and the entire build is exposed as a unified DOM object.
