The building process is similar to Magnum itself. See the building documentation for a comprehensive guide for building, packaging and crosscompiling — we provide packages for many platforms, including Windows, Linux and macOS.


If you want to contribute to Magnum, if you spotted a bug, need a feature or have an awesome idea, you can get a copy of the sources from GitHub and start right away! There is the already mentioned guide about how to download and build Magnum and also a guide about coding style and best practices which you should follow to keep the library as consistent and maintainable as possible.

See also the Magnum Project Contact & Support page for further information.
