    Hello, I found a program on github that has been updated but not to the point where it has been released. I don't want to wait for the next release. Is there a way I could compile it into a program? Or could you compile it for me? I do have the link of what I want to compile.

    Why do you want to compile it? To translate it ?!

    to compile you just need to get the files and type a command right?

    You probably need to build the Crpyto++ library and put it into an appropriate path first.
    Other than that, it is just standard Qt.
    You could do qmake + make from the command line, or load the project into QtCreator and build it from there.

    i asked because i wonder why github doesn't offer options to compile in the site itself.. autocompiling when a person asks for the last modification...

    That would be incredibly impractical for everyone. It would require a lot more processing power from the servers (if you've never compiled something large, then you wouldn't know that this can take hours, even with a good rig), and every project has its own dependencies. Not to mention that Github most likely wouldn't spend the time to set up working build environments for each individual project.

    It is actually possible to set-up automatic compilation with Github thanks to their releases API, and several continuous integration services make this easy, however this set-up is left to the project owner.
    Github cannot readily support all build systems for all languages, because there are simply so damn many, but more fundamentally they most likely will not as their company direction isn't in that area.
