Building Factor from source is the recommended way to get Factor if you want to track development, because it saves bandwidth over downloading a binary every few days. It is also a requirement for contributors who wish to push patches to the Factor repository. New users and casual dabblers should use binaries if possible instead, to save time and effort.
Cloning a repository
You will need to install git first. Once you have installed git, you can clone a copy of the Factor repository:
git clone git://factorcode.org/git/factor.git
Cloning from behind a restrictive corporate firewall:
git clone http://factorcode.org/git/factor.git
