    I resisted learning Make because of the clunkiness around it (Tab-indentation? C-specific features? Gross!), but after using it a few times now I've come to appreciate it.

    Most recent case was for Starbound mods. The macOS and Linux versions of Starbound don't ship with any built-in tools for uploading mods to the Steam Workshop (unlike Windows, which apparently has a dedicated GUI for it), and I didn't want to have to manually go through a bunch of SteamCMD steps every time I wanted to publish an update, so for my first real mod I put together a Makefile to automatically pack all the files together (using Starbound's included asset_packer CLI tool), populate a metadata.vdf for the Steam Workshop, and run the right steamcmd incantations to get everything up. Once that was reliably working, I condensed everything into a GitHub template repo ( and ended up with a pretty straightforward (albeit a bit clunky in spots) universal Makefile:

        MODNAME  = StarboundMod
