I just decided to switch over from Ubuntu 18.04 LTS to Elementary OS 5.1 (Hara) and like to tweak my desktop to hide the date/time in the top panel.
I found an answer to hiding the date in the top panel.
I went ahead and cloned the wingpanel-indicator-datetime GitHub repository to my system
@lemonslice nudges to ask a follow up question "how to compile a (debian) package?" so here I am :)
The answer refers to debuild (which I understand is for package creation) and the Elementary developer guide talks about using meson. I am a noob when it comes to front-end development.
Can someone explain or outline:
- the difference between using both build tools to make and deploy a change
- the recommended steps to rebuild wingpanel-indicator-datetime (after making desired changes to the source code)
- the steps deploy it to my local instance of Elementary OS
- the steps to rollback the changes (if there is an easier way than reverting the code and rebuilding/redeploying)
