First, sorry if this is not the right channel for asking such question...
I would like to have a tool which converts from CMake(Lists.txt) to Bazel(BUILD) (as far as I know such a tool does not exist yet). My understanding is that to write such a tool (or any "conversion" tool for that matter) I would need to access a lot of the information cmake has about the build.
I've started a mockup (in Go) to get my feet wet with the cmake-server protocol and I seem to understand that part of that information (which files are needed for which target) is readily available using the cmake-server mode (code model), while some other is not (like which target depends on which other one(s) #17058 (closed)).
On the other hand I've had a look at e.g. the discussion on #17753 (closed) hinting that maybe the server mode has no future.
What is the situation really ? Will the dep graph be made available to external tools ? In which form (cmake server, files in build dir) ? What's the ETA for those features ? ;-)
