Development Tools

All development tools required to use Haiku as your development environment are now included. Simply download the latest official release or the latest and unstable nightly images, and you should have everything you need.

Cross-compiling from Other Systems

While we encourage using Haiku to build Haiku and/or software for Haiku, it is also possible to cross-compile from other operating systems. If you choose to cross-compile from another system, the Pre-Requisite Software for Compiling Haiku guide may be a good reference for each supported development environment.
