(re)build CEF from another tag 76.0.3809.62

Postby tgayet » Fri Jul 19, 2019 5:06 am


Previously, I had to compile a version of CEF based on release 75 by following this link: https://bitbucket.org/chromiumembedded/ ... ckStart.md

I saw today that the release 76.0.3809.62 is out
(Https://bitbucket.org/chromiumembedded/ ... ecba65f8a3).

To be able to recompile my cef from my actual source code code I have to do:
Code: Select all
$ cd ~ / code / chromium_git / chromium / src
$ git fetch
$ git checkout cef_76_test 76.0.3809.62
$ ninja -C out / Debug_GN_x64 cef

Do you validate my approach or do you use the bash update.sh and create.sh scripts by changing the reference to the tag somewhere?

Thank you in advance for your return

The commit you reference is from branch 3809. You have to re-run the automate-git.py script with addiontal switch --branch=3809 . That script also accepts --checkout switch to which you could pass "tags/76.0.3809.62", but it is not required since what you want is latest version that CEF supports in given branch, so it should work automatically.

Previously you've build from master. Master branch uses 76.0.3809.0 version at the moment.
