----

Builder aims to be an IDE for writing GNOME-based software.
We believe this focus will help us build something great for our community.

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 primarily written in C and Python.
Some aspects of Builder may be written in another language when it makes sense.

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

----

Builder is built using meson:

```sh
meson --prefix=/usr build
ninja -C build
sudo ninja -C build install
```

For more information on building and installing Builder,
[read our installation guide](http://builder.readthedocs.io/en/latest/installation.html)
to help you through the process.
