If you've ever wondered what it takes to compile Magic Lantern from scratch, then this is the video for you!
Magic Lantern often has pre-compiled versions for us to download, but they also have a “nightly build” which is just the source code that has been updated that day – and if you want the absolute latest version of the code, then you'll have to compile (build an executable) it yourself.
By the way, this is done on Windows… having not tried this myself, I don't know if it is different for mac users.
