How can one build IntelliJ IDEA Community Edition from source from terminal?

Answered

I need to build IntelliJ IDEA Community Edition from source - https://github.com/JetBrains/intellij-community - without using IDEA itself. The readme section https://github.com/JetBrains/intellij-community#intellij-build-configuration describes how to create multiple OpenJDKs among other things, but this seems to be tightly coupled to the IDEA itself. A few forum posts provide general guidelines on doing this in the IDEA, but I was hoping that someone may have a script one could run to build from source in a terminal?

I am not building any plugins and I am not making any modifications to the source code - my sole ambition is to successfully build the cloned GitHub repository in a stable branch such as master.

Many thanks.
