Guys If you are interested in contributing to this project, please
join this chat so that we could communicate much easier.

If you would like to make contribute to this project or for some other purposes, then you probably should at least build once. Here’re the steps:
- macOS >= 13.0
- Xcode >= 14.4
- Xcode Commandline Tools
First, fork and clone your forked repo or just clone this repo directly if you don’t plan to be a contributor. If you’re in China, you’d better set up a HTTPS Proxy first to avoid failure due to bad connection or poor download speed.
git clone https://github.com/haren724/open-wallpaper-engine-mac
And then open the directory in Xcode.
open open-wallpaper-engine-mac -a /Applications/Xcode.app

(newly update): a testing DocC Documentation is currently on stage. Check it anytime if you need.
(old): This project’s documentation can be build with
docc. I’ll upload the documentation link automatically built by github action here later.
