Other Tools

Building the Tools

Some of the tools mentioned are contained in this repository.

To compile them, you will need the following:
- .NET 5 SDK

To compile them, clone this repository and the submodules (git clone --recurse-submodules) and simply go to the Source folder and run the BuildTools.ps1 script in Powershell. When the process completes, there will be a Build folder created in the same directory.

If you wish to contribute to the tools and are not familiar with C# or the .NET platform, I would recommend installing Visual Studio for development.
