After considering several software build systems for Swift a few years ago, we ended up settling on SCons for its correctness, power, and maintainability. The main thing we traded this for was speed: although we could get a no-op build down to only a few seconds by using the right flags, those few seconds can still get in the way when doing very short build/test/debug cycles during daily development. To shorten the turnaround time during development, I created a script to use SCons to generate a build file for Ninja, a small but very fast build system, which gets our no-op builds down to a fraction of a second.
