A module is constituted by a folder that contains a module file (with .rift format).

Any type files (.rf format) inside this folder or its subfolders are considered part of that module and will be compiled together.


If the subfolder of a module contains its own module file, this folder and all its files will be considered its own module.


By default functions, types, and variables of a module are exported for other modules to use.


A module can have dependencies to other modules, granting it access to their code. Dependencies can be either Private or Public as it is explained later.

Target types

The target type defines if a module will be compiled into an executable, a static library, or a dynamic library.
