Build From Source

If you have installed go, then you can build aretext from source:

mkdir -p $(go env GOPATH)/bin
git clone https://github.com/aretext/aretext.git
cd aretext
make install

This will install aretext in $(go env GOPATH)/bin, which you can add to your $PATH environment variable. If you are using the bash shell, set $PATH like this:

export PATH=$PATH:$(go env GOPATH)/bin

Packages

If a package is not yet available for your platform, please consider creating one! We are looking for package maintainers on Debian, Fedora, Homebrew, Nix, and any other platform you may prefer!

Arch Linux

aretext is available as an AUR Package. If you use yay, run this to install it:

yay -S aretext
