Pre-requisites for Ubuntu:

sudo apt install libwxgtk3.0-dev libwxgtk-media3.0-dev meson

Pre-requisites for Arch Linux:

sudo pacman -Syu --needed meson wxgtk2

Build and run:

meson _build --prefix $PWD/_install
ninja -C _build install


Pre-requisites for macOS can be installed via Homebrew:

brew install wxmac boost dylibbundler make

Note: Building with Xcode currently does not work without issues (see issue #247). Therefore it is recommended to build with GNU make like as described below:

git clone --recursive --depth=1 https://github.com/wxFormBuilder/wxFormBuilder
cd wxFormBuilder
cd build/3.0/gmake
make config=release


cd ../../../output/
open wxFormBuilder.app
