Hacking on Déjà Dup
Getting Set Up
The easiest way is to use JHBuild. Once setup, run:
jhbuild -m gnome-world build deja-dup
Getting Source Directly
Alternatively, you can directly get the trunk and build from there:
git clone https://git.launchpad.net/deja-dup cd deja-dup make
Things to Do
There is a list of tasks to take on.
Run ./tests/shell-local to get a shell that points to your built executables and uses a temporary gsettings location so you don't mess with your user's settings.
Once in that shell, you can run commands like deja-dup --backup or deja-dup to test your changes.
