I have just pushed my directory restructuring branch to master as I announced
IMPORTANT: You should wipe out your existing build/install directory after
pulling this new master. And if you are building in the source tree (which we
don't advise) instead of having a separate build directory, be sure to run
"make distclean" there *BEFORE* pulling this new master.
Then proceed as usual, that is run autogen.sh/configure-with-options/make for
based build or cmake-with-options/[make/ninja(-build)] for a cmake based
The new directory structure is roughly as follows:
Non-code items that get installed (like account charts, check formats,
The core libraries which define our internal data structures and code to
handle them. This holds the core-utils, gnc-module, engine (including qof),
app-utils and a few smaller ones
The code for the gui application built on top of libgnucash. Here you'll find
the directories gnome, gnome-utils, report, html, import-export,...
Currently only the python bindings are here, in the future the guile bindings
should be migrated here as well.
Low level support code, mostly for debugging and testing (debug, test-

- src/plugins: the two real "plugins' in there were in fact import modules, so
they have been moved to import-export. The example subdirectory (which is
never built) is now a subdirectory of libgnucash/gnc-module
Please report any problems you may experience with this new work.
