Compiling a project with ninja using Nix

So, I there’s a project I’m looking to build which uses ninja to build the file. Is there a way I can get Nix to run the appropriate commands for me? In my case it would be something like ninja -k 0 -f ""

If you include ninja to nativeBuildInputs that should add a set of build hooks related to ninja-based builds: Nixpkgs Manual

Chances are it will Just Work without many tweaks.

Well, actually, this project also requires the C++ bindings for metakit to be available for linking… so that’s gonna be an issue, as metakit isn’t in nixpkgs.
