dynamic_reconfigure and catkin

Dear all, I would like to know if there is a way, even a workaround, of generating dynamic_reconfigure files from a catkin package. AFAIK, there is no way currently to use dynamic_reconfigure in a catkin package as the CMake macro is not compatible (rely on rosbuild macros).

  1. Is there a workaround?
  2. Is it planned for dynamic_reconfigure to switch to catkin?

I believe there is a way do generate the files using catkin:

In your CMakeLists.txt

#add dynamic reconfigure api
find_package(catkin REQUIRED dynamic_reconfigure) generate_dynamic_reconfigure_options(relative_path_to_file1 relative_path_to_file2 ...)

From the dynamic reconfigure tutorial:

Examples of catkin packages using dynamic_reconfigure are image_rotate or stereo_image_proc:

It is possible that the documentation is not yet up-to-date for this, if you find it lacking, create a ticket on dynamic_reconfigure.

Apparently it was not lacking, just not so obvious to find. Hope this question will makes information easier to get ;)
