Building OctoMY

Building OctoMY from source can be anything from a breeze to a daunting task.

Despite the fact that OctoMY is a fairly large project, it has a very unique aspect; it has been created from the start to have no external dependencies except the dependencies inherited from Qt. Combined with the fact that OctoMY uses qmake build system, this means that you should be able to simply install QtCreator IDE on your platform, clone the git repository and hit the build button to be up and running with development.

On the other hand, if you want to produce a set of release binaries for OctoMY™ then you need to start thinking about the peculiarities of your target platform, and how you want to package and distribute your artifacts on that target platform.
