ooo-build is a project focused on creating Better, Faster, and Freer Office Suite - Your Office Suite.
ooo-build sources are stored in git. To get them, you can use:
git clone git://anongit.freedesktop.org/git/ooo-build/ooo-build
If you want to learn more, please see the GettingIt pages.
Once the source has been checked out, ooo-build can be built in very nearly the usual manner:
cd ooo-build ./autogen.sh --with-distro=DISTRO ./download make
where DISTRO is the basename of a file in the distro-configs directory, such as Debian, SUSE, or Ubuntu.
For more info please see the BuildingIt page.
Once your build finishes, it's time to do a developer installation, and start hacking:
make dev-install # check that it works cd build/install/program source ooenv ./soffice
See the HackingIt page to see how you can do it.
For some debugging tips, please see the DebuggingIt page.
Once you have done a change that you are happy with, and that builds with ooo-build, contribute it back, we'll be happy to integrate it! Do:
# commit your changes to your local repository git commit -a # create the patch git format-patch origin/master
and send the resulting patch to the firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list.
More information can be found on the Contributing page.
