Installation

So you wanna give horizon a test drive? Great! Here’s how.

Stable release

A known-good snapshot from ongoing development.

Windows

Download and run the MSI installer from GitHub releases.

Linux

Get the latest stable release from Flathub.

If you want to compile it yourself, download the source tarball from GitHub releases and follow the instructions in Building on Linux.

For Arch Linux, there’s an AUR package.

Keep in mind that binary packages provided by your distribution might be out of date.

Development version

Usually works, but might break occasionally, so use at your own risk. Recommended if you want to get the latest in features and bug fixes.

Windows

Grab the latest build from AppVeyor CI and unzip it somewhere. Note that these are 64bit binaries. In case a build is still running or someone broke the build, you can download past builds from the build history (click on artifacts to get the zip)

Linux

Clone the repository and see Building on Linux for instructions on how to build horizon on linux.
