Welcome!

In this help section you will find everything related to setting up a native development environment. Please walk through the Getting Started-section step by step1. At the end you will have the latest OGS source code and the OGS finite element simulator compiled and ready to run! This first section of the developer guide will give you just a brief introduction, make sure to read the more advanced topics after you have familiarized yourself with the basics.

If you want to contribute to the OGS project please also walk through the Development Workflows-section step-by-step.

Instructions may differ depending on your operating system (OS). Be sure to pick the right one in the OS selector at the top of the next page.


  1. If you want to take a shortcut and have a machine with the Docker container runtime available you may want to look at VS Code Remote – Containers↩︎
