Hi, I want to build my own builder with app inventor.

Is there any easier way?

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.

git clone https://github.com/mit-cml/appinventor-sources.git
