How to Download SyndiBot

You have several options for downloading Syndi, which is available for users of Linux, BSD, Mac OS X, and Microsoft Windows.

You foremost need to install Ruby 2.0.0 or later, the process of which is thoroughly explained in the Syndi Handbook.

Stable

Currently, no stable releases are available.

Testing

Testing releases (called “prereleases”) are packages made of the master branch which precede stable releases. They have the latest features, but are made available for testing purposes and may prove unreliable in a production environment.

You can always obtain the latest prerelease via RubyGems:

$ gem install syndi

The latest prerelease is 0.1.3 Phoenix: Zip archive; Tar/GZ archive; Gem package.

Git

Our Git master branch has the latest features, but may be unstable from commit to commit. Use only if you’re feeling adventurous.

$ git clone -b master git://github.com/syndibot/syndi.git
$ cd syndi
$ gem install bundler
$ bundle install
$ rake
$ rake install

The Git repository is the forge for Syndi, and therefore contributions should be made there. To contribute, please peruse the included CONTRIBUTING.md file.

Old

Old releases and prereleases can be obtained through their respective Git tags (every release is tagged). See a list as well as archive links here.
