Welcome to Cappuccino!
Cappuccino is an open source framework that makes it easy to build desktop-caliber applications that run in a web browser.
For more information, see http://cappuccino.org.
To build Cappuccino itself, please read more here :
If you're using Windows, you'll also need Cygwin: http://www.cygwin.com/
Finally, if you want to easily stay up to date with the latest developments and contribute your work back to the Cappuccino community, you'll want to install Git: http://git-scm.com/
These instructions are for building a development copy of Cappuccino. If you'd just like to get started using Cappuccino for your web apps, you should instead download a pre-compiled copy of Cappuccino from:
To build Cappuccino from source, check out the most recent stable version from github:
$ git clone git://github.com/280north/cappuccino.git (git)
or download the zipball of the most recent source code:
If this is your first build and your system does not have narwhal and jake installed, run the bootstrap script to install it and all of its dependencies:
Then, simply type "jake" from within the root of the Cappuccino directory. This will build a "release" copy of the frameworks. Typing "jake debug" will build a debug version. "jake install" will build Cappuccino and associated tools and install them for general use.
