For a complete list of dependencies and versions recommended, please look at https://weechat.org/files/doc/devel/weechat_user.en.html#dependencies[user’s guide].
WeeChat can be built with http://cmake.org/[CMake] (recommended) or autotools.
[NOTE] Only CMake is officially supported to build WeeChat. You should only use autotools if you are not able to use CMake. + Building with autotools requires more dependencies and is slower than with CMake.
$ mkdir build $ cd build $ cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/path/to/directory $ make
$ make install (as root for installation in system directories)
For more information or installation with autotools, please look at https://weechat.org/files/doc/devel/weechat_user.en.html#compile_with_autotools[user’s guide].
