Building

Bleeding-edge builds are generated automatically for every commit. You can see them here.

If you'd rather compile on your own, follow these instructions. First, make sure you have JDK 16 installed. Other JDK versions will not work. Open a terminal in the Mindustry directory and run the following commands:

Windows

Running: gradlew desktop:run
Building: gradlew desktop:dist
Sprite Packing: gradlew tools:pack

Linux/Mac OS

Running: ./gradlew desktop:run
Building: ./gradlew desktop:dist
Sprite Packing: ./gradlew tools:pack

Server

Server builds are bundled with each released build (in Releases). If you'd rather compile on your own, replace 'desktop' with 'server', e.g. gradlew server:dist.

Android

  1. Install the Android SDK here. Make sure you're downloading the "Command line tools only", as Android Studio is not required.
  2. Set the ANDROID_HOME environment variable to point to your unzipped Android SDK directory.
  3. Run gradlew android:assembleDebug (or ./gradlew if on linux/mac). This will create an unsigned APK in android/build/outputs/apk.

To debug the application on a connected phone, run gradlew android:installDebug android:run.

Troubleshooting

Permission Denied

If the terminal returns Permission denied or Command not found on Mac/Linux, run chmod +x ./gradlew before running ./gradlew. This is a one-time procedure.


Gradle may take up to several minutes to download files. Be patient. After building, the output .JAR file should be in /desktop/build/libs/Mindustry.jar for desktop builds, and in /server/build/libs/server-release.jar for server builds.
