Direct installation

If you are an experienced Pharo user and you want to download OpenPonk directly into your image, you can do so by executing the following code:

Metacello new
    baseline: 'DynaCASE';
    repository: 'github://openponk/openponk/repository';
    load: 'complete'.

Opening

The downloaded package contains README.md with additional instructions, however on properly configured system launching openponk.sh (under Linux & Mac) or OpenPonk.exe (under Windows) should be sufficient.

Requirements

Under Windows and Mac it should work out of the box.

Linux may require extra configuration as Pharo VM is currently only 32bit. Please refer to Pharo's official guide.

Additionally you will require 32bit cairo2 library, usually available in distribution package managers as libcairo2:i386 (debian), libcairo2, etc.

The bundled launcher will check those requirements and will warn you and provide some tips if your system is not configured properly.
