Citra User

To use LeafEdit completely you need to get the assets from here. Put the files to sdmc:/3ds/LeafEdit/assets/ and you should be fine.


Setting up your enviromment

To build LeafEdit from source, you will need to setup a system with devkitARM, libctru, citro2d, citro3d, 3ds-curl and 3ds-libjpeg-turbo. Follow devkitPro's Getting Started page to install pacman, then run (sudo dkp-)pacman -S devkitARM libctru citro2d citro3d 3ds-curl 3ds-libjpeg-turbo. You will also need bannertool and makerom set to your PATH.

Cloning the repo

To download the source you will need to clone it with submodules, this can be done by running

git clone --recursive

or if you've already cloned it running

git submodule update --init --recursive

to update all the submodules.


Simply run make in the LeafEdit directory.
