Tux Paint Git Repository

The various source and data files for Tux Paint are available via "Git". ("Git" is a 'distributed version control system,' which lets developers and users alike get access to the source-code to a project, and download any changes incrementally.)

What you'll find in Git is the current code that developers are working on. It may be incomplete or unstable. If you're looking for a stable release, download the latest source release, or a pre-compiled version for your favorite platform.

Git repositories exist for the following components of Tux Pant:

  • tuxpaint - The source for the main "Tux Paint" application and its images and sounds
  • tuxpaint-docs - The PHP and HTML source code to the documentation provided with Tux Paint
  • tuxpaint-stamps - The collection of rubber stamp images and their descriptions and sounds
  • tuxpaint-config - The source to the graphical configuration tool for Tux Paint
  • tuxpaint-website - The PHP, HTML, and CSS source code, and images and other data for this website
