CMake, SCons, autohell, ant, grunt, waf...

Recently it became a popular trend to build your own little toy build system. I mean, the aforementioned bunch are all but toys, except I don't really understand what they can do that make cannot.

Do you know how do I deploy the content on this website?

cd src/me/www
make all deploy

Or how do I run various recurring system maintenance tasks on my laptop?

su -
make weekly

Enjoy!
