Build/Debug with Visual Studio Code on Linux

https://code.visualstudio.com/docs/setup/linux required installation of Extension "C/C++"

cd cherrytree
code .

Build with: Ctrl+Shift+B Debug with: F5

Build/Debug with Visual Studio Code using a container

It is possible to use a container as a full-featured development environment from VS Code. This works on any operating system that supports Docker.

  1. Install the system requirements.
  2. Open the project in VS Code.
  3. (optional) Edit .devcontainer/devcontainer.json to set your DISPLAY environment variable and/or edit other settings. It is also possible to run the container on a remote Docker host, see the comment at the end.
  4. Run the Remote-Containers: Open Folder in Container... command.
  5. See previous section for Build and Debug instructions.

To create a debian package

./build.sh deb

Building Cherrytree on MacOS

Cherrytree is now part of Homebrew!

brew update
brew install cherrytree

If for any reason you prefer to build it yourself, install dependencies:

brew install cmake ninja pkg-config python3 adwaita-icon-theme fmt gspell gtksourceviewmm3 libxml++ spdlog uchardet fribidi curl vte3
brew link icu4c --force
brew install --cask basictex
sudo tlmgr update --self
sudo tlmgr install dvipng

Get cherrytree source, compile and run:

git clone https://github.com/giuspen/cherrytree.git
cd cherrytree
git submodule update --init
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH="/usr/local/opt/icu4c/lib/pkgconfig"
./build.sh
./build/cherrytree

Building Cherrytree on Windows

Install MSYS2: https://www.msys2.org/ (we cover here the packages for 64 bit installation)

Launch 'MSYS2 MinGW 64-bit' terminal (there are 3 different terminals, make sure it is 64-bit otherwise it will cause issues)

Run the following command multiple times there until there are no more updates:

pacman -Syuu

Install required packages to build cherrytree:

# toolchain, cmake, ninja
pacman -S --needed --noconfirm mingw-w64-x86_64-toolchain mingw-w64-x86_64-cmake mingw-w64-x86_64-ninja
# gtkmm3, gtksourceviewmm3, libxml++2.6, sqlite3
pacman -S --needed --noconfirm mingw-w64-x86_64-gtkmm3 mingw-w64-x86_64-gtksourceviewmm3 mingw-w64-x86_64-libxml++2.6 mingw-w64-x86_64-sqlite3
# gspell, curl, uchardet, fribidi, fmt, spdlog
pacman -S --needed --noconfirm mingw-w64-x86_64-gspell mingw-w64-x86_64-curl mingw-w64-x86_64-uchardet mingw-w64-x86_64-fribidi mingw-w64-x86_64-fmt mingw-w64-x86_64-spdlog
# latex, dvipng, gettext, git, nano
pacman -S --needed --noconfirm mingw-w64-x86_64-texlive-core mingw-w64-x86_64-gettext git nano

use native windows theme

mkdir /etc/gtk-3.0
nano /etc/gtk-3.0/settings.ini
[Settings]
gtk-theme-name=win32

console settings

nano ~/.bashrc
CHERRYTREE_CONFIG_FOLDER="C:/Users/${USER}/AppData/Local/cherrytree"
[ -d ${CHERRYTREE_CONFIG_FOLDER} ] || mkdir -p ${CHERRYTREE_CONFIG_FOLDER}
alias l="ls -lah --color"
alias g=git
bind '"\e[A":history-search-backward'
bind '"\e[B":history-search-forward'

Get cherrytree source, compile and run:

git clone https://github.com/giuspen/cherrytree.git
cd cherrytree
git submodule update --init
./build.sh
./build/cherrytree.exe

Troubleshooting:

  • Cannot build: make sure to start 64-bit terminal
  • Cannot build: remove cherrytree/build folder and start build.sh script again
  • Cannot start cherrytree: you either have to run cherrytree from the msys2 mingw64 terminal or copy and replace cherrytree in cherrytree_0.99.X_win64_portable folder (downloaded from the site) by the new one, so dependencies are fulfilled
