NAME

gstreamer-meson.eclass - Helps building core & split gstreamer plugins

DESCRIPTION

Eclass to make external gst-plugins emergable on a per-plugin basis and to solve the problem with gst-plugins generating far too much unneeded dependencies.

GStreamer consuming applications should depend on the specific plugins they need as defined in their source code. Usually you can find that out by grepping the source tree for 'factory_make'. If it uses playbin plugin, consider adding media-plugins/gst-plugins-meta dependency, but also list any packages that provide explicitly requested plugins.

FUNCTIONS

gstreamer_system_package <gstaudio_dep:gstreamer-audio> [...]
Walks through meson.build in order to make sure build will link against system libraries. Takes a list of path fragments and corresponding pkgconfig libraries separated by colon (:). Will replace the path fragment by the output of pkgconfig.
gstreamer_system_library <gstbasecamerabin_dep:libgstbasecamerabinsrc> [...]
Walks through meson.build in order to make sure build will link against system libraries. Takes a list of path fragments and corresponding pkgconfig libraries separated by colon (:). Will replace the path fragment by the output of pkgconfig.
gstreamer_multilib_src_configure
Handles logic common to configuring gstreamer plugins
gstreamer_multilib_src_compile
Compiles requested gstreamer plugin.
gstreamer_multilib_src_test
Tests the gstreamer plugin (non-split)
gstreamer_multilib_src_install
Installs requested gstreamer plugin.
gstreamer_multilib_src_install_all
Installs documentation for requested gstreamer plugin

ECLASS VARIABLES

GST_PLUGINS_ENABLED
Defines the plugins to be built. May be set by an ebuild and contain more than one indentifier, space separated (only src_configure can handle mutiple plugins at this time).
GST_PLUGINS_NOAUTO
Space-separated list defined by the ebuild for plugin options which shouldn't be automatically defined by gstreamer_multilib_src_configure.
GST_PLUGINS_BUILD_DIR ?= ${PN/gst-plugins-/}
Actual build directories of the plugins. Most often the same as the configure switch name. FIXME: Change into a bash array
GST_TARBALL_SUFFIX ?= "xz"
Most projects hosted on gstreamer.freedesktop.org mirrors provide tarballs as tar.bz2 or tar.xz. This eclass defaults to xz. This is because the gstreamer mirrors are moving to only have xz tarballs for new releases.
GST_ORG_MODULE ?= ${PN}
Name of the module as hosted on gstreamer.freedesktop.org mirrors. Leave unset if package name matches module name.
