This project contains the following products:
The following steps are required prior to building this project on any platform.
At the time of writing this Mac OS Homewbrew contains Qt 5.14.1 and NESICIDE can also be built with that version of Qt. So, alternatively, you can install Qt using
brew intall qt5
sudo apt-get install qtchooser build-essential libasound2-dev liblua5.1-dev libsdl1.2-dev libgl1-mesa-dev
sudo pacman -S lua sdl mesa wine
This project builds for Linux, macOS, and Windows. To perform a build for any supported platform follow the instructions for the platform below.
NOTE: The build process takes a while, so grab a snack while you wait. ;)
If you installed Qt from Homebrew you need to set the following environment variable so that the build process can find qmake (the qt5 Homebrew formula is keg-only):
NOTE: The build process uses GnuWin32 tools and MinGW tools. Install these and make sure that
wget are on your path.
deploy.sh creates artifacts of the following form.
Separate AppImage executables for each product of the project. See https://appimage.org/ for information on AppImage containers.
Separate Apple Disk Images (DMGs) for each product of the project.
Monolithic bzipped tarball containing all products of the project, extractable to anywhere.
