Lutro - Documentation

Building Lutro

Building Lutro from source is only needed if you want to modify Lutro. If you just want to develop games, move to Getting started

To build Lutro from source, you will need git, a C compiler like gcc or clang and make.

On Windows, we recommand using Git Bash and mingw-w64.

Clone the repo:

git clone

Then change directory to libretro-lutro and build:


On Windows, you might need to specify CC

CC=gcc make

You should then find the binary in the form of a shared library named lutro_libretro.

See the top of the Makefile for more build options.
