flexible build script for package collections

Jhbuild is a program that can be used to pull a number of modules from Git, CVS, Subversion, Bazaar and other types of repositories or from tarballs and build them in the correct order. Unlike some build scripts, jhbuild lets you specify what modules you want built and it will then go and build those modules plus dependencies.

Although jhbuild was originally developed to build GNOME, it has since been extended to work with other projects as well. Extending it to handle new modules is usually trivial assuming the build infrastructure matches the other modules it handles.

Package version:3.4.0-1


This is not for the kids!

JHBuild offers a mean to pull the latest software and the latest bugs
from upstream source repositories.  In particular, it will expose the
build failures that plenty of GNOME modules have at some time.

You should NOT use JHBuild if you do not know how to deal with these
failures.  This tool is aimed at developers who need the latest version



JHBuild is a tool designed to ease building collections of source
packages, called “modules”.

JHBuild was originally written for building GNOME, but has since been
extended to be usable with other projects.

JHBuild requires Python >= 2.3
