Build BWF MetaEdit CLI

When you have done all the prerequisite for your configuration, then build BWF MetaEdit. We start with the CLI.

git clone https://github.com/MediaArea/BWFMetaEdit.git
cd BWFMetaEdit/Project/GNU/CLI
./autogen.sh
./configure
make

Build BWF MetaEdit GUI

If you have already build the CLI, no need to run git twice. In fact, if you re-run git with an existing BWF MetaEdit directory, git will complain and exit.

To compile BWF MetaEdit GUI under macOS and Linux:

git clone https://github.com/MediaArea/BWFMetaEdit.git
cd BWFMetaEdit/Project/QtCreator
./prepare
make

Build under Windows

CLI and GUI dependencies
