Escape prerequisites filenames in build.ninja.d depfile Currently gn can't handle BUILD.gn files that are placed in some folders with space. This happens because files written into build.ninja.d aren't escaped. Unfortunately ninja escape rules are not applicable to depfile syntax. Actually none of the existing escaping modes can handle depfile syntax. So new mode was created for this specific case.

Alternatively, you can build GN from source:
git clone https://gn.googlesource.com/gn cd gn python build/gen.py ninja -C out # To run tests: out/gn_unittests
On Windows, it is expected that
lib.exe can be found in
PATH, so you'll want to run from a Visual Studio command prompt, or similar.
On Linux and Mac, the default compiler is
clang++, a recent version is expected to be found in
PATH. This can be overridden by setting
If you find a bug, you can see if it is known or report it in the bug database.
GN uses Gerrit for code review. The short version of how to patch is:
Register at https://gn-review.googlesource.com. ... edit code ... ninja -C out && out/gn_unittests
Then, to upload a change for review:
git commit git cl upload --gerrit
When revising a change, use:
git commit --amend git cl upload --gerrit
which will add the new changes to the existing code review, rather than creating a new one.
