Aoife is written in Xojo, a general purpose compiled cross-platform
object-orientated language. Aoife comprises a compiled binary
aoife.exe on Windows) and a support library. The 64-bit Windows
build also includes a few required DLLs. I currently provide pre-built binaries
Linux (32/64-bit) and the
Raspberry Pi (32-bit).
Installing Aoife is very simple. First, download the appropriate binary package
from GitHub. Once downloaded, it can be run from
anywhere, just make sure that you keep the executable (
and the support library in the same place. You don’t need to install it in a
global location if you don’t want to. This is the easiest way if your using a
shared web host or somewhere you don’t have administrative privileges.
For the best experience, I suggest copying the executable and library to a
location in your
PATH for easy use. That way you can run it from a Terminal
or Command Prompt simply by typing
aoife. On macOS
probably the best location.
Upgrading is as simple as downloading the latest version and overwriting the executable and support library.
