Building Actions Status

Use Gradle for building a package for your desired platform:

./gradlew or make in the project dir for the list of available targets.

./gradlew current would build the app for your current platform

The resulting binaries will be put into the build/libs directory. Run jar files with java -jar <jar-file>.

Deb and rpm packages can be built only on Linux (tested on Ubuntu). Windows installer can be built on Windows only.

./gradlew all will build packages for all OS (tested on Ubuntu only, see dependencies below).


On Ubuntu install the following packages:

sudo apt install openjdk-11-jdk rpm fakeroot

Install OpenJDK on other platforms as you usually do it.
