|Linux:||Download the AppImage|
Note 1: Windows will prompt you with a security concern before install. It is safe to continue! Beaker is downloaded via secure connection from
download.beakerbrowser.net. (We’re still working on signing the release, which will solve that problem.)
Note 2: Linux users don’t have an auto-updater yet. You’ll need to download new versions manually for now. Sorry!
You can report issues here.
Building from source
Requires node 6 or higher. On windows, you may need to use npm version 4, due to a bug in npm 5.
In Linux (and in some cases OSX) you need libtool, m4, and automake:
sudo apt-get install libtool m4 make g++ # debian/ubuntu sudo dnf install libtool m4 make gcc-c++ # fedora
npm config set python c:/python27 npm config set msvs_version 2015 npm install -g node-gyp npm install -g gulp
git clone https://github.com/beakerbrowser/beaker.git cd beaker npm install npm run rebuild #see https://github.com/electron/electron/issues/5851 npm start
If you pull latest from the repo and get weird module errors, do:
npm run burnthemall
This invokes the mad king, who will torch your
node_modules/, and do the full install/rebuild process for you.
npm start should work afterwards.
If you’re doing development,
npm run watch to have assets build automatically.
