KoLmafia has migrated to the GitHub repository and we are retooling for GIT and gradle builds.

The good news is that the IDE setup is a lot easier. The bad news is you'll need to take some steps to build anything. In addition, we are discussing changing to a newer required JDK, so even these instructions will not be permanent.

After succeeding at Compiling from Source for your platform, you can add set up your KoLMafia source in an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) of your choice. It is entirely possible to build and change KoLMafia without and IDE and some of the developers do just that.
