Compiling only a module

Hi,
I’m trying to develop a module for nginx and I’m wondering how I can
compile just a module by itself. I check out this page:
http://www.evanmiller.org/nginx-modules-guide.html#compiling
but it basically says that you have to compile nginx completely to
compile
the module. This seems rather cumbersome, is there a way around this?

Regards,
Dennis

Nginx modules a all compiled in. There is no mechanism to build and load
a shared library.
Fortunately, the makefile is properly configured to recompile only
changed stuff. To fine tune dependencies within your module, try
NGX_ADDON_DEPS.

Other way is to write you own custom makefile in your module dir. But it
may be a complicated thing due to cross platform nature of nginx.

I don’t think it makes any sense to compile an nginx module by
itself. If you want to just check the syntax simply running gcc on it
should more or less suffice, but it won’t do anything without NginX
and NginX doesn’t dynamically (THANK $DIETY) load modules so building
it without building NginX is pretty much pointless.

Next! :slight_smile:
