sudo apt install libwxgtk3.0-gtk3-dev libwxgtk-media3.0-gtk3-dev meson

Pre-requisites for Arch Linux:

sudo pacman -Syu --needed meson wxgtk2

git clone --recursive --depth=1
cd wxFormBuilder
meson _build --prefix $PWD/_install --buildtype=release
ninja -C _build install

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
cd wxFormBuilder
cd build/3.0/gmake
make config=release


cd ../../../output/
