DDS
Supported Platforms and Build Requirements

Supported Platforms and Build Requirements

dds aims to be as cross-platform as possible. It currently build and executes on Windows, macOS, Linux, and FreeBSD. Support for additional platforms is possible but will require modifications to bootstrap.py that will allow it to be built on such platforms.

Build Requirements

Building dds has a simple set of requirements:

  • Python 3.6 or newer to run the bootstrap/CI scripts.

  • A C++ compiler that has rudimentary support for several C++20 features, including Concepts. Newer releases of Visual C++ that ship with VS 2019 will be sufficient on Windows, as will GCC 9 with -fconcepts on other platforms.

Note

On Windows, you will need to execute the build from within a Visual C++ enabled environment. This may involve launching the build from a Visual Studio Command Prompt.

Note

At the time of writing, C++20 Concepts has not yet been released in Clang, but should be available in LLVM/Clang 11 and newer.
