Obtaining source code

GIMP source code lives in the gimp repository on the GNOME git server .

Notes: for more information on the git distributed version control tool, we advise the very good online documentation ; to know more about GNOME’s git solution, go here .

The GNOME git server hosts a couple of GIMP related repositories:

Module Description
babl Pixel format conversion library
gegl Generic Graphical Library
gimp GIMP and the standard set of plug-ins
gimp-data-extras GIMP Data files such as brushes, gradients, patterns and the like; outdated plug-ins are sometimes moved there as well
gimp-gap GIMP Animation Package, a set of plug-ins that provide video editing functionality
gimp-perl GIMP Perl bindings and a bunch of nice gimp-perl scripts
gimp-ruby GIMP Ruby-based scripting plug-in
gimp-tiny-fu GIMP Tiny-Fu, a drop-in replacement for Script-Fu

If you wish to help with core development, you should clone at least babl , gegl and gimp repositories.

Our websites also have git repositories:

Module Description
gimp-help GIMP User Manual, available at docs.gimp.org
gimp-web The GIMP web site, available at www.gimp.org
gimp-web-devel The source of the pages you are reading right now

The following repositories are archived (development stopped and the repository is read-only):

Module Description
