IDE setup: autobuild/ No such file or directory

I was trying to set up IDE through this link

On checking the synfig.git folder there was no such file(
Then i checked the even there i didnt find any file named
Please Help

The build system has changed recently (and will change again in a near future), the wiki is not up-to-date.
Please refer to the new offical documentation for building:
Netbeans configuration remains almost the same.

Ok, I thought those instructions were on: How to setup IDE and build through IDE.
I have already build it once.

Now i want to set up IDE and be able to build through IDE.
There are instructions for (Anujta, Eclipse, Netbeans). I have Visual Studio Code installed and want to work with it only. If someone already knows or is interested in figuring it out please help.

On writing this command: DEBUG=1 autobuild/ it says No such file or directory

Please run file instead (it is in the root of synfig’s source tree -

Unfortunately, we have no instructions for Visual Studio Code.
I recommend to go with NetBeans.

I have installed netbeans what to do next
I was using but BobSynfig told me that it is not up to date
Is there any other link to set up ide?

If i follow the outdated instructions build fails.
cd ‘/home/sagar/synfig.git/synfig-studio’
/usr/bin/make -f Makefile -j 4 install
make: Makefile: No such file or directory
make: *** No rule to make target ‘Makefile’. Stop.

BUILD FAILED (exit value 2, total time: 397ms)

@BobSynfig I remember you asked me to update documentation for NetBeans and NIX build system. And honestly I don’t remember - am I did updated it? If yes, then where? ^__^"

@KonstantinDmitriev You sent me a link to a video but it was from the time of autobuild/ :wink:

But most of the config is the same as in the Wiki, you can change the project properties once in Netbeans and set parameters as below:

@BobSynfig Doh, I couldn’t find that video :frowning:

We need to update instructions for IDE setup, to allow new contributors to work in effective environment.
The best would be to have those instructions on

Ah, I found the video!

@sagar.00joshi Please follow instructions from this video -
