SysDB is distributed as a source-code archive.
Latest release: 0.8.0
Release date: 2016-02-25
A mirror of all releases can be found at Github.
The SysDB web user-interface provides a graphical client application for browsing and querying the system database.
It is available as a separate sub-project on Github at github.com/sysdb/webui. It is written in the Go programming language (golang) and can be installed and built using:
go get github.com/sysdb/webui go build github.com/sysdb/webui # Short usage summary: ./webui --help
See the README file for further instructions.
Language bindings allow you to interact with SysDB using other programming languages.
Install the package into your GOPATH using the go get command:
go get github.com/sysdb/go
The latest version of the source-code is available in the Git archive, hosted on Github. You may browse the source-code in the web-interface or download the code via Git via https://github.com/sysdb/sysdb.git. A mirror is available at git://git.tokkee.org/sysdb.git.
Compile the Source
After downloading the source package, you need to unpack, compile, and install the source. For this, you might need additional dependencies based on which components of SysDB you want to use. You'll find detailed information about this in the README file. Also, the 'configure' script will provide a summary of required and auto-detected dependencies.
Compile and install the source using the usual approach used by a lot of Open Source projects:
tar zxf sysdb-VERSION.tar.gz cd sysdb-VERSION ./configure make all install
When fetching the source from Git or after changing the build system, you'll have to rebuild the build system:
