So, if you want to play with Clutter, here’s two Jhbuild modulesets:
- clutter-0.4.modules – for the stable branch of Clutter, if you are developing applications
- clutter-0.6.modules – for the development branch of Clutter, if you want to contribute to Clutter itself, or you want to write bindings for it
Just download the moduleset file of the branch you want to use, copy it into the
modulesets directory of the Jhbuild checkout and then:
jhbuild -m clutter-0.4 build pyclutter
or, if you have a fresh checkout of Jhbuild, simply do:
jhbuild -m http://folks.o-hand.com/~ebassi/clutter-0.4.modules build pyclutter
thanks to Frederic Peters for fixing remote modulesets and pointing this out
The command lines above will build the stable Python bindings for the stable branch of Clutter, fetching all the needed dependencies. If you’re stuck on some external dependency, though, feel free to drop into
#clutter and ask for help3.
Update@2007-10-12T17:51+0100: I’ve added the following meta-packages:
- meta-clutter-core, depending on Clutter
- meta-clutter-suite, depending on meta-clutter-core, Clutter-GStreamer, Clutter-GTK+ and Clutter-Cairo
- meta-clutter-python, depending on meta-clutter-suite and PyClutter
You can use the meta-packages to pull in everything you need. As soon as I figure out a way to reliably depend on the other languages runtime environments, I’ll probably add their own meta-packages and a meta-clutter-bindings as well.
