I have tried to find instructions on installing i3 from sources in the Git repository. It seems, the procedure is not explained anywhere in:
The only instructions I found is compilation of details from:
- PACKAGE-MAINTAINER and DEPENDS files in the Git repository
- and my own experience with building software on Linux :)
I wonder, is it intentional not to provide users with "Install i3 from source" How-To?
I have found the following note from the features list on the i3wm front page complements the philosophy:
- Do not use programs such as autoconf/automake for configuration and creating unreadable/broken makefiles.
- Also, document the dependencies properly, so that package maintainers have an easy job packaging i3.
