I work on a project that I currently build with the traditional MSVC IDE. But the company I work for wants me to look into building future versions with waf. This is mostly for consistency. It's a cross-platform app and the other platforms both get built using waf.
I must admit I'm not massively keen. MSVC's debugger is tightly tied to its IDE so building without MSVC projects is bound to make debugging more difficult - unless there's a way to generate a VC project from a waf script.
Back in the days of VC6 I once came across an app for generating a VC project from a makefile and it worked pretty well. Has anyone ever heard of something similar for generating a VC project from a waf project or vice versa?
