Obtaining, Building, and Installing

For instructions on obtaining, building, and installing SMTK, clone the repository:

git clone https://gitlab.kitware.com/cmb/smtk.git

and follow the instructions in the doc/dev/build.md file in the source code. Other files in that directory describe our development process and are relevant if you intend to contribute source code to SMTK. The rest of this user’s guide assumes you have built and installed SMTK according to these instructions.

In addition to cloning anonymously as mentioned above, you are also welcome to create an account on either gitlab.kitware.com or github.com and fork the repository. Forking the repository will allow you to submit contributions back to SMTK for inclusion in later releases. See Contributing to SMTK for more on how to prepare and submit changes to SMTK.
