## Design Principles
1. [Keep It Simple, Stupid](
2. Offer useful features for serving Git repositories. If feature is complex, refer to #1.
3. All dependencies must be retrievable from a publicly accessible [Maven]( repository.<br/>This is to ensure authenticity of dependencies and to automate the setup of developer environments.

## Building from Source
[Eclipse]( is recommended for development as the project settings are preconfigured.
Additionally, [Google CodePro AnalytiX](, [eclipse-cs](, [FindBugs](, and [EclEmma]( are recommended development tools.
1. Clone the git repository from [Github][gitbltsrc].
2. Import the gitblit project into your Eclipse workspace.
*There will be lots of build errors.*
3. Using Ant, execute the `build.xml` script in the project root.
*This will download all necessary build dependencies and will also generate the Keys class for accessing settings.*
4. Select your gitblit project root and **Refresh** the project, this should correct all build problems.
5. Using JUnit, execute the `com.gitblit.tests.GitBlitSuite` test suite.
*This will clone some repositories from the web and run through the unit tests.*
6. Execute the *com.gitblit.GitBlitServer* class to start Gitblit.
