Building Aegisub

Windows

Prerequisites:

  1. Visual Studio 2015 (the free Community edition is good enough)
  2. The June 2010 DirectX SDK (the final release before DirectSound was dropped)
  3. Yasm installed to somewhere on your path.

There are a few optional dependencies:

  1. msgfmt, to build the translations
  2. WinRAR, to build the portable installer
  3. InnoSetup, to build the regular installer

All other dependencies are either stored in the repository or are included as submodules.

Building:

  1. Clone Aegisub's repository recursively to fetch it and all submodules:
    git clone --recursive [email protected]:Aegisub/Aegisub.git
    This will take quite a while and requires about 2.5 GB of disk space.
  2. Open Aegisub.sln
  3. Build the BuildTasks project.
  4. Build the entire solution.

You should now have a

bin
directory in your Aegisub directory which contains
aegisub32d.exe
, along with a pile of other files.

The Aegisub installer includes some files not built as part of Aegisub (such as Avisynth and VSFilter), so for a fully functional copy of Aegisub you now need to copy all of the files from an installed copy of Aegisub into your

bin
directory (and don't overwrite any of the files already there). You'll also either need to copy the
automation
directory into the
bin
directory, or edit your automation search paths to include the
automation
directory in the source tree.

After building the solution once, you'll want to switch to the Debug-MinDep configuration, which skips checking if the dependencies are out of date, as that takes a while.

OS X

A vaguely recent version of Xcode and the corresponding command-line tools are required. Nothing older than Xcode 5 has been tested recently, but it is likely that some later versions of Xcode 4 are good enough.

For personal usage, you can use homebrew to install almost all of Aegisub's dependencies:

brew install autoconf ffmpeg freetype gettext ffms2 fftw fribidi libass m4
brew install --devel --with-gc64 luajit
brew install --HEAD icu4c
brew link --force icu4c
brew link --force gettext
brew install --HEAD --c++11 --with-icu4c boost

wxWidgets is located in vendor/wxWidgets, and can be built like so:

CPPFLAGS="$CPPFLAGS -D__ASSERT_MACROS_DEFINE_VERSIONS_WITHOUT_UNDERSCORES=1" \
./configure --disable-aboutdlg --disable-animatectrl --disable-aui --disable-any \
--disable-bannerwindow --disable-base64 --disable-calendar --disable-caret \
--disable-cmdline --disable-colourpicker --disable-compat28 --disable-config \
--disable-constraints --disable-datepick --disable-dctransform --disable-debugreport \
--disable-dialupman --disable-docview --disable-filehistory --disable-finddlg \
--disable-fs_archive --disable-fs_inet --disable-fs_zip --disable-fsvolume \
--disable-fswatcher --disable-gif --disable-help --disable-html --disable-ipc \
--disable-joystick --disable-jpeg --disable-largefile --disable-markup --disable-mdi \
--disable-mediactrl --disable-metafiles --disable-miniframe --disable-notifmsg \
--disable-numberdlg --disable-pcx --disable-pnm --disable-postscript \
--disable-prefseditor --disable-printarch --disable-progressdlg --disable-propgrid \
--disable-protocol --disable-protocols --disable-rearrangectrl --disable-ribbon \
--disable-richtext --disable-richtooltip --disable-snglinst --disable-sockets \
--disable-sockets --disable-sound --disable-splash --disable-splines \
--disable-std_iostreams --disable-svg --disable-tarstream --disable-tiff \
--disable-tipdlg --disable-tipwindow --disable-url --disable-webkit --disable-webview \
--disable-wizarddlg --disable-xrc \
--enable-geometry --enable-imaglist --enable-listctrl --enable-stc --with-cocoa \
--with-libpng=yes --with-macosx-version-min=10.9 \
--with-opengl \
--without-libjpeg --without-libtiff --without-regex \
&& make

Once the dependencies are installed, build Aegisub with

autoreconf && ./configure --with-wxdir=/path/to/Aegisub/vendor/wxWidgets && make && make osx-bundle
.
autoreconf
should be skipped if you are building from a source tarball rather than
git
.

Updating Moonscript

From within the Moonscript repository, run

bin/moon bin/splat.moon -l moonscript moonscript/ > bin/moonscript.lua
. Open the newly created
bin/moonscript.lua
, and within it make the following changes:
  1. Prepend the final line of the file,
    package.preload["moonscript"]()
    , with a
    return
    , producing
    return package.preload["moonscript"]()
    .
  2. Within the function at
    package.preload['moonscript.base']
    , remove references to
    moon_loader
    ,
    insert_loader
    , and
    remove_loader
    . This means removing their declarations, definitions, and entries in the returned table.
  3. Within the function at
    package.preload['moonscript']
    , remove the line
    _with_0.insert_loader()
    .

The file is now ready for use, to be placed in

automation/include
within the Aegisub repo.
