Building from Source

Dev environment

Visual Studio Code with rust-analyzer extension.
For working with QML I recommend to use Qt Creator and load all QML files there, as it has auto-complete and syntax highlighting. The project also supports UI live reload, it's a super quick way of working with the UI. Just change live_reload = true in gyroflow.rs and it should work right away. Now every time you change any QML file, the app should reload it immediately.

Building steps

Windows
macOS
Linux
Android
iOS
  1. 1.
    Prerequisites: git, 7z and working powershell. If you never ran powershell scripts before, run set-executionpolicy remotesigned in powershell as admin
  2. 2.
    Get latest stable Rust language from: https://rustup.rs/
    • Please make sure to check the English language pack option when installing the C++ build tools from Visual Studio Installer
  3. 3.
    Install Just by running cargo install --force just
  4. 4.
    Clone the repo: git clone https://github.com/gyroflow/gyroflow.git
  5. 5.
    Enter the project directory and:
    • Install dependencies: just install-deps
    • Compile and run: just run
