Development Environment Setup
KoLmafia has migrated to the GitHub repository and we are retooling for GIT and gradle builds.
Links below this section may be obsolete and should be verified before relying on them.
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.
Platform-specific Development Tools
- Apple's OS X notes on development for Java, including the XCode Tools setup, can make command line work easier.
Developer Text Editors
Choose your favorite, or add your favorite.
- Mac OS X based text editor
- Another Mac based editor

- cross-platform text editor
This list will be out of date shortly after it's written, but can be updated as newer tools and versions are released.
