The speedata Publisher can be downloaded in two versions:
There are three ways to install speedata Publisher:
Binary packages (The recommended way): Go to our download page and download the latest package for your operating system. You can unzip the file anywhere in the filesystem you want. You don’t need root/administrator rights to use the Publisher this way. There are extra installer packages for windows, if you don’t want to set the
PATHvariable yourself. This is the method if you want to install the speedata Publisher Pro software.
APT repository: If you have root or sudo rights on Debian or Ubuntu GNU/Linux (or a similar system), you can install the .deb files we have prepared from our APT repository. (For now, only the 64 bit architecture is supported.) This is very easy, just follow a few steps:
Add our GPG key to the system to make sure you get the correct software:
Add the following file to /etc/apt/sources.list.d/speedata.list for the development version (unstable):
# all on one line: curl -fsSL http://de.speedata.s3.amazonaws.com/gpgkey-speedata.txt | sudo gpg --dearmor -o /usr/share/keyrings/speedata_de.gpg
or for the main (stable) releases:
deb [arch=amd64 signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/speedata_de.gpg] https://software.speedata.de/download/devel stable main
deb [arch=amd64 signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/speedata_de.gpg] https://software.speedata.de/download/public stable main
The previous three commands and source codes entries must be on one line.
Now you can run
sudo apt update and
apt install speedata-publisher and have a working installation.
Build from source: For developers interested in contributing to speedata Publisher, the program and documentation can be built directly from source. You can choose between a prebuilt docker image on dockerhub or build the software from the git repository using rake. You need to have the Go language version 1.11 or later installed. For example, on Debian or Ubuntu GNU/Linux, where Go is packaged as 'golang', you can use the commands:
To build the manual and the ebook, you need asciidoctor:
sudo apt install build-essential git rake golang git clone https://github.com/speedata/publisher.git cd publisher rake build rake buildlib
If you are building speedata Publisher from source, you will also need to install LuaTeX manually. The recommended way is to download a binary from https://download.speedata.de/#extra and copy it into the bin/ directory of the Publisher. For example, to download and install LuaTeX 1.15 on a Linux amd64 system, you could use the commands:
sudo gem install asciidoctor rake doc
After installation, you can run
wget https://download.speedata.de/files/extra/luatex_115-win-mac-linux.zip unzip luatex_115-win-mac-linux.zip cp luatex/linux/sdluatex bin
bin/sdluatex --versionto confirm the program version.
|On windows, you might need the Microsoft Visual C++ compiler and the VCRuntime140.dll. The installation path of the speedata Publisher must only contain ascii characters and must contain any accented characters.|
