git clone


  1. Create BuildBuild\BinBuild\PluginsBuild\Services directory
  2. Copy all the files under the Resources\RunNeed directory to the Build directory
  3. Copy all the files under the Libraries\IronPython directory to the Build\Bin directory (if you have already installed IronPython on the host, skip this step).
  4. Copy all the files under the Libraries\Sqlite3 directory to the Build directory
  5. Use VS2012 (or higher version) or MonoDevelop to compile
  6. For the host of Linux or Mac, errors may be reported during plugin compiling as windows commands are incompatible in Linux or Mac.
  • Thus you can change the word copy in file *.csproj to cp,and the word call to sh, and then recompile.
  • Or you can ignore this error and manually copy the compiled dll plugin to the Plugins directory, where the path must be similar to the Plugins\ShellCmder\ShellCmder.dll
  1. If you need to compile a Mac version, manually copy all files (except Altman.Mac) under the Build directory to the Build\Altman.Mac\Contents\MonoBundle directory before Debug or running.
