Build Vikunja from source #
Vikunja being a go application, has no other dependencies than go itself.
All libraries are bundeled inside the repo in the
vendor/ folder, so all it boils down to are these steps:

- Make sure Make is properly installed on your system.
- Clone the repo with
git clone https://code.vikunja.io/api
make buildin the source of this repo. This will build a binary in the root of the repo which will be able to run on your system.
Note: Static ressources such as email templates are built into the binary.
For these to work, you may need to run
make generate before building the vikunja binary.
When builing entirely with
make, you dont need to do this,
make generate will be run automatically when running
Build for different architectures #
To build for other platforms and architectures than the one you’re currently on, simply run
make release or
