A long time ago, some people on Twitter asked me to add an RSS feed to this blog.
gyp, short for "Generate Your Projects", is a build system written by
Google that was specifically designed to build their Chromium web browser.
gyp makes it easy to develop such a large project because the developers can
create and test each piece individually by defining self-contained "targets".
Then at Release-time,
gyp makes it easy to stitch the "targets" together into
a single statically linked executable. Ryan Dahl once called it
"the module-system of C".
