To host your own copy of Riot, the quickest bet is to use a pre-built
released version of Riot:
1. Download the latest version from https://github.com/vector-im/riot-web/releases
1. Untar the tarball on your web server
1. Move (or symlink) the riot-x.x.x directory to an appropriate name
1. Move (or symlink) the `riot-x.x.x` directory to an appropriate name
1. If desired, copy `config.sample.json` to `config.json` and edit it
as desired. See below for details.
1. Enter the URL into your browser and log into Riot!
Releases are signed by PGP, and can be checked against the public key

Whenever you git pull on riot-web you will also probably need to force an update

Before attempting to develop on Riot you **must** read the [developer guide

also defines the design, architecture and style for Riot too.
You should also familiarise yourself with the "Here be Dragons" guide to the

First clone and build `matrix-js-sdk`:
1. `git clone https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix-js-sdk.git`
1. `pushd matrix-js-sdk`
1. `git checkout develop`
1. `npm install`
1. `npm install source-map-loader` # because webpack is made of fail (https://github.com/webpack/webpack/issues/1472)

pushd matrix-js-sdk
git checkout develop
npm install
npm install source-map-loader # because webpack is made of fail
# see https://github.com/webpack/webpack/issues/1472
popd
```
Then similarly with `matrix-react-sdk`:
1. `git clone https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix-react-sdk.git`
1. `pushd matrix-react-sdk`
1. `git checkout develop`
1. `npm link ../matrix-js-sdk`
1. `popd`
```bash
git clone https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix-react-sdk.git
pushd matrix-react-sdk
git checkout develop
npm link ../matrix-js-sdk
popd
```
Finally, build and start Riot itself:
1. `git clone https://github.com/vector-im/riot-web.git`
1. `cd riot-web`
1. `git checkout develop`
1. `npm install`
1. `npm link ../matrix-js-sdk`
1. `npm link ../matrix-react-sdk`
1. `npm start`
1. Wait a few seconds for the initial build to finish; you should see something like:

Remember, the command will not terminate since it runs the web server
and rebuilds source files when they change. This development server also
disables caching, so do NOT use it in production.

When you make changes to `matrix-react-sdk` or `matrix-js-sdk` they should be
automatically picked up by webpack and built.
