No CMakeLists.txt

In the second part of the course there are intructions when creating the cartographer package to edit the CMakeLists but if we create the package using python

ros2 pkg create --build-type ament_python <package_name>

There is no CMake file to edit.

Is there a reason to create the cartographer package using Cmake vs Python?

Hello @hilljtyler ,

It doesn’t really matter. You can create cartographer_slam as a Python package if you prefer it. In this case, you’ll need to edit the file in order to install the launch and config folders.
