Everythig is not easy in this world.


Hi there and welcome to the community
If you want to make your own builder then you need to have a lot of knowledge of Java, Kawa and Scheme(according to me)
And if you want to make it for users then you need to pay for servers and google app engine

I would recommend against trying to run your own version of App Inventor as a service for others if you have difficulty understanding how to apply the instructions in the README. App Inventor is a complex piece of software with multiple moving parts and it is not trivial to run it for a large audience. You may want to start with trying to build your own extensions, etc. to become more familiar with the system first before taking on a larger task.


I am building some of my own extensions.

@Taifun & @Sagnik_Chatterjee As there were some problems with cloning the repo is it ok to download the repo manually and then doing all the steps?
