Building MWorks from source
Most users, including those developing custom plugins, do not need to compile MWorks themselves. However, for developers working on MWorks' internals or users interested in modifying core components, the following steps are the quickest route to building all of MWorks from source:
Install Xcode. After installation, launch the application once so that it can install additional components as required.
Install the Python packages required for building the documentation:
sudo easy_install pyaml Sphinx
Give yourself write permission on the installation directories:
sudo /bin/chmod +a "user:$(whoami) allow add_subdirectory,delete_child" /Library/Application\ Support /Library/Frameworks
Check out the source code:
git clone https://github.com/mworks/mworks.git
cd mworks/build ./build_mworks
This will download required supporting libraries and build and install all MWorks components, including applications, frameworks, plugins, scripting tools, and documentation.
Once this is done, you can modify and build individual components directly via their Xcode projects.
