Install from source

Installing from source is intended for more experienced users or those who simply wish to explore the inner workings of Roo. There are a few prerequisites for compiling the source:

  1. The source code. Available on the GitHub releases page
  2. A valid Xojo console license
  3. A valid Monkeybread Software MBS Xojo plugin license

After cloning the repo and opening the project in Xojo you’ll need to register your MBS plugin. For obvious reasons my serial number is not included in this public repo. Roo’s App.Open() event makes a call to a method named MBS() as Boolean within a module named RegisterPlugins. Simply create this module, add this method and use it to register your MBS plugin. After that, the code should build.
