Developer’s guide

This section is intended as a guide to how Brian functions internally for people developing Brian itself, or extensions to Brian. It may also be of some interest to others wishing to better understand how Brian works internally.

If you use VS code as your development environment, it will offer to automatically build a Brian development Docker container when you open the repository, with all the required dependencies installed and configured. Further documentation for this approach can be found in the .devcontainer directory.
