How to build knime from sources?

Hi knime-devs?

I really love Knime, and would like to understand it better. To do so I want to build it from its sources.

However, even if the website claims it to be opensource, I’ve not found any source-snapshot of the latest release along with some build-instructions. Have I missed something?

I’m aware that I could puzzle together the sources of the different bundles via the update-site, but this gives me by no means a pathway to build knime by myself.

Any help is cordially welcome.

Best, Watzlaw.

Hi Watzlaw and others,

did you get any reply this question? I also would like to tinker a bit with the source, the external tool node to be exact.
