Getting started with the source
Change directory into the top (this) directory of SpriteBuilder and run:
git clone https://github.com/apportable/SpriteBuilder cd SpriteBuilder git submodule update --init --recursive cd scripts ./build_distribution.py --version 1.x
You need to use the BuildDistribution.sh script the first time you build SpriteBuilder, after that you can build it from within Xcode.
Still having trouble compiling SpriteBuilder?
It is most likely still a problem with the submodules. Edit the .git/config file and remove the lines that are referencing submodules. Then change directory into the top directory and run:
git submodule update --init
When building SpriteBuilder, make sure that "SpriteBuilder" is the selected target (it may be some of the plug-in targets by default).
