Clutter

What is Clutter?

Clutter is an open source software library for creating fast, compelling, portable, and dynamic graphical user interfaces.

Requirements

Clutter currently requires:

On X11, Clutter depends on the following extensions:

  • XComposite
  • XDamage
  • XExt
  • XFixes
  • XInput (1.x or 2.x)
  • XKB

If you are building the API reference you will also need:

If you are building the additional documentation you will also need:

  • xsltproc
  • jw (optional, for generating PDFs)

If you are building the Introspection data you will also need:

If you want support for profiling Clutter you will also need:

Clutter is licensed under the terms of the GNU Lesser General Public License, version 2.1 or (at your option) later: see the COPYING file for more information.

Building and Installation

To build Clutter from a release tarball, the usual autotool triad should be followed:

  1. ./configure
  2. make
  3. make install

To build Clutter from a Git clone, run the autogen.sh script instead of the configure one. The autogen.sh script will run the configure script for you, unless the NOCONFIGURE environment variable is set to a non-empty value.

See also the BuildingClutter page on the wiki.

Versioning

Clutter uses the common "Linux kernel" versioning system, where even-numbered minor versions are stable and odd-numbered minor versions are development snapshots.

Different major versions break both API and ABI but are parallel installable. The same major version with differing minor version is expected to be ABI compatible with other minor versions; differing micro versions are meant just for bug fixing. On odd minor versions the newly added API might still change.

The micro version indicates the origin of the release: even micro numbers are only used for released archives; odd micro numbers are only used on the Git repository.

Contributing

If you want to hack on and improve Clutter check the HACKING file for general implementation guidelines, and the HACKING.backends for backend-specific implementation issues.

The CODING_STYLE file contains the rules for writing code conformant to the style guidelines used throughout Clutter. Remember: the coding style is mandatory; patches not conforming to it will be rejected by default.

The usual workflow for contributions should be:

  1. Fork the repository
  2. Create a branch (git checkout -b my_work)
  3. Commit your changes (git commit -am "Added my awesome feature")
  4. Push to the branch (git push origin my_work)
  5. Create an Bug with a link to your branch
  6. Sit back, relax and wait for feedback and eventual merge

Bugs

Bugs should be reported to the Clutter Bugzilla at:

    http://bugzilla.gnome.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=clutter

You will need a Bugzilla account.

In the report you should include:

  • what system you're running Clutter on;
  • which version of Clutter you are using;
  • which version of GLib and OpenGL (or OpenGL ES) you are using;
  • which video card and which drivers you are using, including output of glxinfo and xdpyinfo (if applicable);
  • how to reproduce the bug.

If you cannot reproduce the bug with one of the tests that come with Clutter source code, you should include a small test case displaying the bad behaviour.

If the bug exposes a crash, the exact text printed out and a stack trace obtained using gdb are greatly appreciated.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
