    I’d really like to contribute to cherrytree but I haven’t found any instructions on building the source. I’d like to help out fixing some bugs and testing so need to be able to build.

    I’m running debian stable and have a fork of the cherrytree git repo so I’m ready to help.

    It is some time since I experimented with building CherryTree in Ubuntu.

    I placed the source in ~/cherrytree-0.38.2

    Then open setup.py to read instructions ..

    #!/usr/bin/env python
    
    # for linux install: "python setup.py install --prefix=/usr -f"
    # for windows exe creation: "python setup.py py2exe"

    Use an IDE such as Spyder2 to run the command or in gnome-terminal.

    Right I took a look at setup.py but I didn’t want to _install_ a new cherrytree – just build it and manually run the newly built binary. Is there a way to do that or is the expectation that people build and install in one step (with setup.py install) to test changes?

    I’ve built some cherrytree.mo files (looks like one for each language). Is there a way to run this cherrytree.mo? Or do I really need to run setup.py with install to _install_ the new version?
