A fast build system that encourages the creation of small, reusable modules over a variety of platforms and languages.
Buck is a build tool. To see what Buck can do for you, check out the documentation at http://buck.build/.
Since Buck is used to build Buck, the initial build process involves 2 phases:
git clone --depth 1 https://github.com/facebook/buck.git cd buck ant
You must be using Java 8 or 11 for this to compile successfully. If you see compilation errors from ant, check your
JAVA_HOMEis pointing at one of these versions.
./bin/buck build --show-output buck # output will contain something like # //programs:buck buck-out/gen/programs/buck.pex buck-out/gen/programs/buck.pex --help
Pre-built binaries of buck for any buck
shacan be downloaded from
https://jitpack.io/com/github/facebook/buck//buck-.pex. The very first time a version of buck is requested, it is built via jitpack. As a result, it could take a few minutes for this initial binary to become available. Every subsequent request will just serve the built artifact directly. This functionality is available for any fork of buck as well, so you can fetch

Note that this generally applies only to documented functionality, or functionality that is less documented, but appears to be in wide use. That process is:
