Currently the only easy way to get the OpenEngine source code is to fetch the development branch. To do this you need to download and install darcs, which is the version control system we use, and Python, which is used to retrieve the remaining OpenEngine distribution.
After you have installed the above programs open a command prompt and run
darcs get http://openengine.dk/code/openengine
This will place the OpenEngine source in a folder named openengine in your current working directory. Change to the openengine folder (cd openengine)
Now you should load a distribution that specifies all the extensions, projects and libraries that you need. If you just want to start with a basic distribution you may use the default distribution. Various other distribution links can be found on the Projects page.
Run the following command and answer y to any questions asked.
./dist.py install http://openengine.dk/data/dists/default.dist
Note: Unix, Linux and Mac users will want to run: chmod +x dist.py
Some Windows users have reported that their dist.py does not recognise parameters. If you have this problem try running the dist.py script directly from python, like this:
python dist.py install http://openengine.dk/data/dists/default.dist
Congratulations, you now have a copy of OpenEngine!
You may now proceed to the page about building and running OpenEngine.
