Acquiring the EDuke32 Source Code
The EDuke32 project self-hosts its source code in a Subversion repository: https://svn.eduke32.com/eduke32/
Git users may be interested in using Git-SVN for local development.
Various forks and mirrors have appeared on version control hosts such as GitHub, but without exception these mirrors have quickly fallen out of date.
It is recommended that you download the latest version from the EDuke32 Subversion (SVN) Repository.
Download and install a Subversion client, if applicable. Package managers usually have a
subversion package. On Windows, here are some choices:
- SlikSVN (high quality command-line native builds)
- TortoiseSVN (includes a handy GUI interface but uses Cygwin)
- Subversion for Windows by alagazam
- AnkhSVN plugin for Visual Studio
Run the following command:
svn checkout https://svn.eduke32.com/eduke32/
If you are a developer who would rather use Git as a front-end, this is possible with the use of Git-SVN.
Here are Windows examples of Git clients:
To quickly jump into the action, run:
git svn clone -r HEAD https://svn.eduke32.com/eduke32/
It is also possible to clone the entire SVN version history, but be aware that this process takes a long time so it is only recommended if you need to delve into the history for the purpose of bisecting.
git svn clone https://svn.eduke32.com/eduke32/

Daily source tarballs are generated from the Subversion repository but they do not include metadata and Photoshop files for the purpose of saving space.
