Building Blender with SCons

One of the ways to build Blender from source is to use the SCons build system. In most cases the system should satisfy all needs, both for developers and especially for occasional non-developer builders.

To compile Blender using SCons you’ll need only your favourite compiler and a proper Python 2.6.x installation.

Using our SCons system is very straightforward. If we’d assume that all dependencies, compilers and Pythons are installed, with everything needed in your path, you’d only have to do the following:

python scons\scons.py

Obviously we need to do a few more things before we can be in such a happy situation.
