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:

  1. Make sure Go is properly installed on your system. You’ll need at least Go 1.9.
  2. Make sure Make is properly installed on your system.
  3. Clone the repo with git clone https://code.vikunja.io/api
  4. Run make build in 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.

Build for different architectures

To build for other platforms and architectures than the one you’re currently on, simply run make release or make release-{linux|windows|darwin}.

More options are available, please refer to the makefile docs for more details.
