Teach gn to handle systems with > 64 processors Previously, when run on Windows systems with > 64 logical processors, gn's calculation of the number of available processors (used to determine how many worker threads to create) under-counted the number of processors, thereby not making full use of the system's available processing power. This change corrects gn's count of available CPUs so that it can use all of the system's processors. In addition to creating the correct number of workers, this change also distributes created workers between processor groups, a necessary step when utilizing more than 64 processors on Windows. On the 72-logical-processor P920, this change makes gn gen use all 36 cores, rather than only 18.

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
There is a simple example in examples/simple_build directory that is a good place to get started with the minimal configuration.
For a maximal configuration see the Chromium setup:
and the Fuchsia setup:
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.
