    Add "build tools" tag meta

Searching for “make” has 30,000 results (although that’s hard because “make” is a common word)

“cmake” has 343 results

“bazel” has 73 results

A lot of these stories are tagged with “programming” or “devops” but I think having a more specific tag for build systems would help sort things a little better.

    Nix would fit under this tag as well.

      “Programming” also covers the programming environnent or does not? A full blown unix programming environment article might be “practices” but a (build) tool alone still fits in the “programming” umbrella which is by default quite large

        Maybe I just hate the programming tag because it’s so general.

      2. 2

        I think we may be overdue for a tools tag–would that slight generalization satisfy you?

          Sure looks like this didn’t go over well.
