Building from source
 Build instructions
- Qt Framework, version 4.8 or 5.0.
- It's possible to compile Knotter for Qt 4.7 but the sources need to be ported with the script
 From a shell
./configure.sh && make
The configuration script will generate the makefile using qmake and set up the installation directories, for more information run
If the configure script fails despite being in a proper build environment you can run directly qmake on knotter.pro. Be advised that this will make some make targets buggy or unavailable.
If you want to regenerate the files created by the Qt build tools, run
make clean make
To install the binaries run
To install in a specific directory, you can set INSTALL_ROOT
make install INSTALL_ROOT=/some/directory
The default install prefix is /usr/local (see ./configure.sh --help)
- Generate source tarball
- Generate Doxygen documentation from the source files
 From Qt Creator
knotter.pro and click Build (Ctrl+B) to compile and Run (Ctrl+R) to start Knotter.

 Cloning from Git
This source tree uses git submodules, this means that the submodules need to be initialized when the repo is cloned:
#Clone repo git clone git://github.com/mbasaglia/Knotter.git # Initialize submodules git submodule init # Clone submodules git submodule update
And to update all the sources:
#Update repo git pull origin master # Initialize new submodules git submodule update --init # Pull submodules git submodule foreach git pull origin master
For convenience, Knotter has the helper script pull.sh that does these three steps.
