Source code organization

Main directory structure layout:

  • api: Indigo API sources
  • bingo: Bingo sources
  • build_scripts: CMake and python scripts for building all the sources
  • third_party: sources for third-party libraries
  • utils: utilities sources
  • common|graph|layout|molecule|reaction|render2d: indigo-core sources

Each project is placed in the corresponding directory with CMakeList.txt configuration file, that does not include other projects. In order to build the whole project with the correct references you need to use CMake configurations from the build_scripts directory.

Preinstalled build tools

To build the project from the sources, the following tools should be installed:

  • GIT 1.8.2+
  • GIT-LFS, so GIT can handle Large File Storage. Refer to
  • C/C++ compiler
    • Linux: GCC version 4.9+ (GCC 4.8.4 is used in builds) or Clang version 3.5+
    • Windows: Visual Studio 2013+ (2015 is used in builds) or MinGW with GCC version 4.9+
    • macOS: Clang 3.5+ (AppleClang 9.1.0 is used in builds)
  • CMake 3.0+
  • Python 2.7+
  • JDK 1.8+
  • .NET Standard 2.0
  • Maven 3.1+

Build instructions

All the CMake projects are placed in build_scripts directories. You can use them manually, or execute preconfigured scripts those do all the job.

Bingo build instructions

To generate project configuration, build the source code, and create the archives for installation, execute build_scripts/

python build_scripts/ --preset=linux32 --dbms=[postgres|oracle|sqlserver]

There are different cmake presets: linux32, linux64, win32, win64, mac10.7 (and also all later mac10.x versions)

There are different dbms targets:

  • postgres - PostgreSQL
  • oracle - Oracle
  • sqlserver - Microsoft SQL Server

Indigo build instructions

To generate project configuration, build the source code, and create the archives for installation, execute build_scripts/ and build_scripts/

Linux (GCC 4.9+ or Clang 3.5+)

APT-based requirements (Debian or Ubuntu):

sudo apt install cmake libfreetype6-dev libfontconfig1-dev

RPM-based requirements (RedHat, CentOS, Fedora): install Developer Toolset if your OS does not have GCC 4.9+ and then install dependencies:

sudo yum install cmake freetype-devel fontconfig-devel

Build libraries and utils:

python build_scripts/ --preset=linux64
python build_scripts/ --preset=linux64

Windows (Microsoft Visual Studio 2013+ or MinGW with GCC version 4.9+)

python build_scripts/ --preset=win64-2013
python build_scripts/ --preset=win64-2013

Mac OS (Clang 3.5+)

python build_scripts/ --preset=mac10.14
python build_scripts/ --preset=mac10.14

Other presets

There are different presets for the build scripts:

  • win32-2013, win64-2013: Visual Studio 2013
  • win32-2015, win64-2015: Visual Studio 2015
  • win32-2017, win64-2017: Visual Studio 2017
  • win32-2019, win64-2019: Visual Studio 2019
  • win32-mingw: MinGW
  • win64-mingw: MinGW-w64
  • linux32, linux64: GCC or Clang on Linux with C++11 support
  • linux32-universal, linux64-universal: GCC on Linux with statically linked libstdc++ for using on older Linux systems without C++11 support
  • mac10.7, mac10.8, mac10.9, mac10.10, mac10.11, mac10.12, mac10.12, mac10.13, mac10.14, mac10.15: target Mac OS X or macOS
  • mac-universal: targeting Mac OS X 10.7 as first version with C++11 support, should work on all Mac OS X 10.7+ systems

Wrappers build instructions

To generate Java, C#, or Python wrappers after building the binaries, execute:

python build_scripts/ --type=[java|dotnet|python]

Available wrapper types: java, dotnet, python.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
