For Windows:

It all starts with a good environment with the correct variables in PATH.

examples of PATH:

C:\Windows\
C:\Windows\system32\
C:\Program Files\Python310\
C:\Program Files\Python310\Scripts\
C:\Python39\
C:\Python39\Scripts\
C:\Program Files\CMake\bin\
C:\Program Files\Git\cmd\
C:\Boost\
C:\MSYS2\

add some new paths:

C:\bin\

(for binaries)

C:\lib\

(for libraries)

C:\dep\

(for dependencies)


you get it..


Make easy directories like:

C:\source\

(for source code)

C:\build\

(for application builds)

C:\installer\

(for installers)


you get it..


Install the newest must haves in default location:

Basic steps:

Use GIT to download repositories, submodules and dependencies:

Download code and submodules and go to the repository directory:

To update your git source code go to repository directory and do this:

git pull
git submodule update --init --recursive

To download and install build dependencies do this:

sudo apt build-dep yourappname

Configure using CMake:

$ mkdir build && cd build
$ cmake ..

Build using CMake:
