If you are experimenting with Lua Development Tools source code, you'll certainly be interested in building it by yourself.

Checking out the source code

Building the source code

  • Verify that you have installed Maven 3 properly on your system. See http://maven.apache.org/download.html to get it if you don't have it already.
  • Use your terminal of choice to cd into the root folder of the LDT source tree you've cloned earlier.
  • Run mvn clean package -P build-product
    • It is possible to build against an older Eclipse platform. As instance, if you want to build with Indigo, run:
      mvn clean package -P build-product,platform-indigo
  • It may take quite a while when running for the first time, but you should end up with a message similar to the following, indicating that everything went well:
[INFO] ------------------------------------------------------------------------
[INFO] BUILD SUCCESS

Build results

They are two kinds of results from the build, repository and product:

  • Products
    • RCP versions for win32/64, mac64 and linux32/64
    • Available under product/target/products/.
  • P2 repository
    • It is a complete p2 repository including your freshly built version of LDT. You can reference this p2 repository location in an Eclipse installation and actually install LDT.
    • Available under product/target/repository/.
