Emacs 25 on Windows (x64)

posted on 2016-04-16

Today whole sourceforge site wasn’t reachable from my home network and suspecting the worst I have decided to make my own Emacs build environment for Windows. Using instructions of bburns.km from https://emacs.stackexchange.com/a/19202 which in turn are based on work of Chris Zheng (emacsbinw64 project) I have created a set of simple shell scripts to automate building of Emacs straight from it’s git repository.

If you would like to use them, here are instructions on how to do so:

You can customize the directory where Emacs is installed in emacs-build-settings.sh file.

You can also download pre-built binaries I have uploaded to github. I’ll try to upload new binary builds on a monthly basis.
