Builder attempts to be an IDE for writing software for GNOME. It does not try
to be a generic IDE, but one specialized for writing GNOME software. We believe

that this focus will help us to build something great.

If you would like to help in this effort, join our IRC channel and we will help
you find something to work on.

Builder is written in C, but some aspects of Builder may be written in another
language if it makes sense.

Builder is developed in conjunction with GNOME releases. This means that we
often contribute to, and depend on, features being developed in other GNOME
modules.

Builder can be built from tarball releases using the traditional autotools
manner.

If you checked the code out from git, you will need to bootstrap the build
system like so:

  ./autogen.sh

Then, a typical build might look like so:

  ./configure --prefix=/usr
  make
  sudo make install

Alternatively, you can build Builder from git using jhbuild. If you are
unfamiliar with jhbuild, the following will help you get started.

  git clone git://git.gnome.org/jhbuild.git
  cd jhbuild
  ./autogen.sh
  make
  make install

  jhbuild build gnome-builder
55 56
  jhbuild run gnome-builder
