h1. Devkit

The devkit project consists of several individual documentation files to explain how to build most of libraries we require in our applications.

All libraries are built as shared. In contrast to many package managers, devkit does not build as much as features and only keep what we needs. For example libsdl-image is only built with PNG support.

h2. Why not vcpkg?
26
27
I did a try with it and I was not able to build some of the required packages. Also, I don't really like the black magic that vcpkg does. I want to have full control of what I'm building with as less dependencies possible.

I recommend using "MSYS2":https://www.msys2.org/ which does a perfect job maintaining a high number of packages with mintty.
