In order to build Minecraft Unicode Font Generator from the source package, you need following development packages (package name may vary depending on the distribution you use):

If you downloaded source code from git repository, you have to install following packages to get build environment:

  • premake5
  • gnumake
  • gcc-c++/clang-c++

And run following command to generate Makefile:

$ premake5 gmake

You can choose clang++ as compiler by following command instead:

$ premake5 -cc=clang gmake

After Makefile is generated, run make to compile the program:

$ make

The default build target is ./bin/Debug/minecraft-unicode-font-generator.You can just run following command to get release build:
