Metanorma: Aequitate Verum

Getting started with Metanorma on on Linux

Install Metanorma via Snap

Snap is a package manager on Linux originating from Ubuntu that allows excellent isolation between software installs.

It also happens that it is the easiest way to install Metanorma on Linux!

The Metanorma Snap package can be installed with a single command:

sudo snap install metanorma

If the Snap daemon, snapd, isn’t available on your distribution, please instead use the all-in-one install script described below for various platforms.

Install Ruby

Ruby is sometimes included with Linux. To see if you already have it (and check the version):

  1. Open a console/terminal

  2. Type ruby -v

If Ruby is installed, you’ll see something like the following

ruby 3.1.0p0 (2021-12-25 revision fb4df44d16) [x86_64-linux]

If not, follow the official Ruby installation guide.
