Thrift win32 binary

I’ve been playing around with Facebook Apache Thrift recently. I had a tough time finding working Thrift binaries for win32, and the compilation process was not trivial, so I’ve decided to put them online.

So here they are, compiled with cygwin from Thrift 0.1.0. This will probably require cygwin to run (remember to add cygwin binary directory to your path).

Note, the compilation process created two different files named thrift.exe – one small (16kb) file and the larger 10mb file I’ve put online (this one actually works).

    Lifesaver! i spent 2 hours trying to compile in portable ubuntu!

    I hate it how so many open source projects you find on the web simply won’t compile out of the box.
    Glad I could help 🙂

    one thing: which exact cygwin1.dll to use? it keeps complaining about wrong entry point…

  4. uwe schaefer:

    ah. got it. for the record: it looks like 1.7, i was still at some older version.

    thx again
