  • #539 (WIP): Add parent packages into dependency tree

  • #498 (WIP): Compiler flags profiles

fpm 仍处于早期开发阶段,我们需要尽可能多的帮助。以下是你今天可以提供的帮助:

  • Use it and let us know what you think! Read the fpm packaging guide to learn how to build your package with fpm, and the manifest reference to learn what are all the things that you can specify in the fpm.toml file.

  • fortran-lang 网站 上浏览现有的 fpm

  • 浏览 开启的 issues,看看你是否可以帮助实施任何修复或功能。

  • 为 fpm 调整 Fortran 包并将其提交到 Registry

  • 改进文档。

fpm 的短期目标是使具有依赖关系的 Fortran 包的开发和安装更容易。其长期目标是构建一个丰富且分散的 Fortran 软件包生态系统,并创建一个健康的环境,在该环境中轻松创建和发布新的开源 Fortran 项目。
