Re: [Gimp-developer] Contribute to OSX-specific features and bug fixes

Travis let’s you store build artifacts and other things on each build.
What’s nice is it will check for changes and store new archives if they’re
different, and allow you to check when you start.

I imagine you could start incrementally building deps and storing them,
then only build what’s needed later (or update deps as needed).

I do something sort of like this myself. But my implementation is not very

I am using homebrew to install the dependencies, honestly I find it more
practical than jhbuild.
When creating the bundle, the libraries installed via homebrew are
included so that the bundle is self-consistent.

I use jhbuild on the one hand because it was in place when I took over the
work on the build and because I am relatively familiar with it. On the
other hand, it gives us full control over all versions of the dependencies
and patches to apply in an easy way (we simply use our own jhbuild
moduleset with all details and maintain this in the GIMP git repository).
We do incorporate a number of patches to third-party modules (glib, GTK+,
and so not) that have not been accepted upstream and I foresee this will
remain so in the future.

Travis provides MacOS build servers. The only issue is that the jobs are
limited to 40 minutes, which are obviously not enough to install all
The solution I found is to do an incremental install of the homebrew
packages via Travis itself, and save the resulting homebrew tree as a tar
package that is stored back on github.
For the final build, I simply fetch and extract the pre-packaged tar
file, which provides me all the required dependencies.

40 minutes is probably not enough. Sending around tarballs seems a bit
hacky to me. I have another possible option for a build server that I will
try first.
