Building the IDE

Introduction

This page explains how to build the IDE from the source. There are two ways to build the IDE:

  • If an existing version of the CodeSmithy IDE is already available for your system you can use it to build a new version of itself.
  • Otherwise you can use the bootstrap build script to build the IDE from scratch using the compiler available for the selected platform.

Bootstrap build

The scripts necessary to build the CodeSmithy IDE from scratch are available in the Git repository at https://github.com/CodeSmithyIDE/Bootstrap.

The scripts are written in Python 3.
