cproj - Linux


cproj is a versatile command-line utility designed to create, manage, and manipulate C programming projects efficiently. It streamlines project setup, configuration, and build processes, making project development and maintenance effortless.


cproj [options] command [arguments]


  • -h, –help: Display help information.
  • -v, –version: Print version information.
  • -w, –cwd: Use the current working directory as the project root.
  • -p, –project-name: Specify the project name. Default: "UnnamedProject".
  • -t, –template: Use a predefined project template. Default: "default".
  • -c, –config: Specify a custom configuration file. Default: "~/.cprojrc".
  • -d, –debug: Enable debug logging.


Creating a New Project

cproj init

Creating a Project Using a Template

cproj init -t my-custom-template

Building the Project

cproj build

Running the Project

cproj run

Common Issues

  • "Project root not found": Ensure you are running cproj from within the project directory or use the -w option to specify the project root.
  • "Invalid template": The specified template does not exist or is not a valid C project template.
  • "Build failed": Check for syntax errors in your code or any missing dependencies.


cproj can be integrated with other tools like version control systems and CI/CD pipelines. For example, you can create a script that uses cproj to perform a build and then push the results to a Git repository.
