Third-party components are handled as git submodules which have to be initialized first. So aside from the regular git checkout invoking

git submodule update --init

or a similar command is needed, for details see Git documentation.

Several apps that are included by default in regular releases such as First run wizard or Activity are missing in


and have to be installed manually by cloning them into the



Otherwise, git checkouts can be handled the same as release archives, by using the


branches. Note they should never be used on production systems.

Building front-end code πŸ—

We are moving more and more towards using Vue.js in the frontend, starting with Settings. For building the code on changes, use these terminal commands in the root folder:

# install dependencies make dev-setup # build for development make build-js # build for development and watch edits make watch-js # build for production with minification make build-js-production

When making changes, also commit the compiled files!

We still use Handlebars templates some places in Files and Settings. We will replace these step-by-step with Vue.js, but in the meantime you need to compile them separately.

If you don’t have Handlebars installed yet, you can do it with this terminal command:

sudo npm install -g handlebars

Then inside the root folder of your local Nextcloud development installation, run this command in the terminal every time you changed a


file to compile it:
