Hello John,

I haven't run yet jhbuild cause of some additional fixes:
- Fix some $HOME references.
- Fix test for .jhbuildrc file.
See last 2 commits of

Having also some questions:
- is $HOME mandatory for PIP_CONFIG_DIR (line 48)?
- is $HOME mandatory for .jhbuildrc and .jhbuildrc-custom (lines 214, 219)?

For some reasons, I want to install all gtkosx stuff including building tools on an external volume (not 
on my home volume). But .local and jhbuild folders are yet created in my $HOME.
How to do it properly?

You can put PIP_CONFIG_DIR anywhere you want, just set it before running, e.g.
That works for all of the environment variables that are set with envvar().

$HOME/.jhbuildrc is hardcoded into jhbuild and jhbuildrc-custom is hardcoded into jhbuildrc, so you're 
sort-of stuck with them. You can of course put the real files somewhere else and symlink them to $HOME. I 
have a primary gtk-osx checkout and symlink jhbuildrc-gtk-osx from there to $HOME/.jhbuildrc and I keep 
my .jhbuildrc-custom under version control on a local server to make it easy to share among my various 
macs and VMs. 

We *could* configure .jhbuildrc-custom's location with yet another environment variable, though I'm not 
too sure that it would be very useful to do so.

Thanks John for your answer.
I was just wondering if the jhbuild home might be changed easily.

What about .jhbuildrc file test issue?


I think I've gotten everything figured out and fixed up. It turned out that pipenv has been borked since 
last October and mesonbuild's last release also has a problem so they're pinned on working releases.  I 
rebased on master to bring everything up to date and force-pushed to results to the pipenv branch.

You'll like the last commit: When I looked at the jhbuild code I found that they'd changed it to search 
XDG_CONFIG_HOME/jhbuildrc, ~/.config/jhbuildrc, and ~/.jhbuildrc in that order, so I adapted and jhbuildrc-gtk-osx accordingly. I also added $JHBUILDRC_CUSTOM in case you want to make 
it something completely different.

IIUC what you want, just set XDG_CONFIG_HOME=$DEVPREFIX/etc. jhbuildrc and jhbuildrc-custom will go there. 
You'll need it in your environment when running jhbuild; you could edit $DEVPREFIX/bin/jhbuild to add it 
there so you don't have to remember.

Please give it a run-through. I have a bit more testing to do as well, then I'll merge to master.

Thanks John for the tip.

One remark on last
lines 218-223: if XDG_CONFIG_HOME and $HOME/.config and $HOME/.jhbuildrc don't exist then config_dir and 
jhbuildrc_file remain empty thats may be an issue lines 234 and 238.
Line 223 I would add:
        else mkdir $HOME/.config; config_dir="$HOME/.config";

HTH, Pascal.
