Factor/GIT repository

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

Building Factor

See Building Factor.
