How to build

It will take a very long time to build,so it is recommended to use the premade binary file in 'Download'.


  • on ubuntu
sudo apt-get install build-essential g++ flex bison gperf ruby perl libsqlite3-dev libfontconfig1-dev libicu-dev libfreetype6 libssl-dev libpng-dev libjpeg-dev python libx11-dev libxext-dev
  • on centos
yum -y install gcc gcc-c++ make flex bison gperf ruby openssl-devel freetype-devel fontconfig-devel libicu-devel sqlite-devel libpng-devel libjpeg-devel


python build.py

Then wait or take a cup of tea.
