Getting Started - Quick Start Guide

The following is the quick-start guide for working with WarFoundry. More detail is available in the Getting Started pages.


To build and develop the #WarFoundry tools you need:

Getting the source code

To build/develop WarFoundry, you'll need to clone the following repositories (pick the appropriate ones for the GUI you're working with). To make use of the existing solution files, put them all in the same folder.

If building from source, you can ignore the test projects. For development work, please also get the unit test projects and run the unit tests to ensure everything still works.

Opening the projects

Each of the GUI projects (IBBoard.WarFoundry.GUI.GTK, IBBoard.WarFoundry.GUI.QtSharp and IBBoard.WarFoundry.GUI.WinForms) contains a .sln file. If all of your projects are in the same parent folder then opening this file in your IDE of choice will load the project.

Contributing changes

Once you've got the code then you can build and run it. You can also make changes and make local commits, but they won't be visible to anyone else until you share them.

For more details on how to share your contributions, read the Contributing instructions.
