You can build the plugins using Autotools.
Building with Autotools
You can use Autotools to build the Geany plugins in this repository.
./configure [arguments] or alternatively ./ [arguments]
sudo make install will call configure in background and is only available if
you are using Geany plugins from git repository. It is not included in
release packages.
However, this will configure, build and install most of the Geany plugins.
There is some auto-detection in place which automagically disables
some of the plugins if there are insufficient build dependencies.
The following arguments can tweak the behaviour of the configure
A full listing of all supported options can be found in ``./configure --help.``
Enable/Disable Features
The following options can be passed to ``./configure`` in forms
``--enable-<option>=auto`` (default), ``--enable-<option>``,
``--disable-<option>``. In all cases, ``--enable-<option>=auto`` causes the
feature to be enabled/disabled automatically based on whether the dependency
exists on your system.
``--enable-<option>`` causes the feature to be forcefully enabled, causing
configure to fail with an error message if you have missing
``--disable-<option>`` causes the feature to be forcefully disabled.

* ``geanypg`` -- the geanypg plugin
* ``geanyprj`` -- the GeanyPrj plugin
* ``geanypy`` -- the Geanypy plugin
* ``geanysendmail`` -- the GeanySendmail plugin
* ``geanyvc`` -- the GeanyVC plugin

* ``cppcheck`` -- static code analysis using cppcheck (see also HACKING)
./configure --enable-geanylua --enable-spellcheck
This will force force both geanylua and spellcheck plugins to be enabled even
if some dependencies are missing.
You can also use the special option ``all-plugins`` to change the default for all
plugins. For example, using ``--enable-all-plugins`` will forcefully enable all
plugins as if you passed each plugin-specific ``--enable-<option>``. This can be
combined with specific plugin's ``--enable-<option>`` to only select a specific
subset of the plugins without listing them all. For example, you can use this
to easily enable one single plugin, using e.g. ``--disable-all-plugins
--enable-<option>``, or to forcefully enable all plugins but a few specific
ones, using e.g. ``--enable-all-plugins --enable-<option>=auto``.
Other tweaks
The following options can be passed to ``./configure`` in the form
* ``lua-pkg`` -- the name of the Lua pkg-config package name.
* ``geany-prefix`` -- Geany's prefix, used when compiling Geany.
Compiling Individual Plugins
The Geany Plugins project uses a recursive Automake build system,
which means that after running ``./configure``, you may compile each
individual plugin by cd-ing into the respective plugin directory
and running make inside it.
