Help needed for Windows build

Post by Yvan Fournier » Sun Jan 08, 2017 1:43 am

Hello to all,

We are happy to provide Windows builds to our users, but the current build system is fragile, and our team is not too familiar with Windows development, so Windows builds tend to be released with some delay.

If anyone on this forum is willing to contribute with this, whether by getting a toolchain and prerequisites running, or suggesting and implementing a new approach, they are welcome.

Hoping someone can help here.

Best regards,

Yvan

For Windows 10 users, the Linux subsystem for Windows is the best option.

A native Windows build of the GUI combined with a (non-graphical) build of the other parts of the system would avoid the requirement for an X server. A web-based version of the GUI would also do here. We are working on improving the back-end of the GUI, but any help on the front-end would be appreciated.
