 A quick guide for getting the Sling source, then building and running the resulting Sling

-Sling can easily be built:
-
-* from the command line (using SVN and the Maven command line tool)
-* or using Eclipse

-Note that you don't *have* to build Sling yourself, if you don't need the bleeding-edge stuff
you can get prebuilt binaries from the [Downloads](/downloads.cgi) page.

is up to date. The first build may take much longer than that if you start with an empty local
Maven repository, as Maven will then download its plugins and all the required dependencies.
