Hi, I'm interested in building and customizing my own version of Greenshot. I'm downloading MS Visual Studio onto my laptop since I don't use it for any other workflows, but I have limited space for it. Can anyone point me to the minimum components/workloads I should install with VS to get started?
You should always use the latest Visual Studio, in this case 2019 with the latest version.
The community edition is fine!!
For the master branch, which is Greenshot 1.x, you will need the “.NET desktop development” workload and to be able to target .NET Framework 4.7.1
For the develop branch, which is Greenshot 2.x, your will
.NET Core cross-platform development as this is targeting dotnet core 3.1
FYI: The credentials for our cloud services are no in the repositories, you will not be able to build a Greenshot with working cloud services if you do not provide your own credentials.
