Sigil Installation

Sigil Installation

We're currently in the process of setting up the Sigil build - the last remaining task here is set up of the build on the apache bamboo servers. In the mean time we have set up a daily build hosted at Sigils previous home (codecauldron.org).

Daily builds

If you feel like living on the edge you can install Sigil from the daily build at code cauldron - as it is a daily build please be careful when using this in your development environments - i.e. ensure you have code checked into version control. There shouldn't be any major problems as the code is being used to develop Sigil itself - but it is only fare to give the warning.

The daily build is hosted here:


Eclipse Update Site

Add the following update site to Eclipse 3.4, 3.5 or 3.5.1


Ivy plugin

The ivy plugin is available here:


Build from source

The following script is useful to ensure builds are created with incremental timestamps vs 0.9.0.SNAPSHOT.

now=$(date +%Y%m%d_%H%M%S) ant -DbuildVersion=0.9.0.$now clean dist To build (note the first build can take a /long/ time as various dependencies need to be cached - but subsequent builds take an order of 10's of seconds) svn co http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/felix/trunk/sigil sigil-trunk cd sigil-trunk sh release.sh Then add an update site to eclipse under `file:/path-to/sigil-trunk/site`.
