Red face Help setting up Dev environment on Mac

I'd really love to contribute to calibre but I'm having a hard time getting up and running locally. I was hoping someone could help me out as my python is very rudimentary (usually poking around in JS repos).

I'm on 10.14.6.

I've reviewed: https://manual.calibre-ebook.com/dev...nt-environment

It doesn't seem comprehensive enough to get me started though.


I have my `launcher.c` file setup with my paths: https://share.getcloudapp.com/p9u52RN9

I get this error when trying to run the calibre-develop file: https://share.getcloudapp.com/2Nur8dlR

Any additional help would be appreciated.

You dont need to do anything with .c files. Simply set

CALIBRE_DEVELOP_FROM

to point to the src folder in your calibre source checkout. Then run any calibre binary from /Applications/calibre.app/Contents/MacOS

Thanks for the help. I imagine I might be a lost cause since I don't have the basic python skills to get this going.

1. I added the export path to my zsh file: https://share.getcloudapp.com/12uDdEG1
2. I navigate to my /Applications/calibre.app/Contents/MacOS/calibre and launch it from iTerm2 but it still doesn't seem to be launching from the src folder.

I just updated to 4.9.1. If there is anything else I can try please let me know. I was going to try assisting on icons and graphic design related help.

I got it! Hot damn! Silly mistake. I was missing a leading / in my path before Users. Thank you for the commands to help me trouble shoot though.
