Generally, installation options depend on whether you want to run ASPIDE as stand-alone, or as a part of your existing Eclipse installation.
iGROM as a stand-alone application
If you either don't have an existing Eclipse installation, or don't want to add iGROM to it, for any reason, simple:
- Go to http://sourceforge.net/projects/igrom/files/stand-alone/ .
- Find the distribution for you. Generally, we have the following available:
- Windows (win), both 32-bit (x86), and 64-bit (x86_64).
- Linux (linux), both 32-bit (x86), and 64-bit (x86_64).
- Mac OS X (macosx), both 32-bit (x86), and 64-bit (x86_64). Support for OS X is experimental at the moment.
- After you download the chosen package, unzip it to the path of your choice, optionally change the name of the directory (by default it's "eclipse"), and run the aspide executable - depending on the operating system, it's igrom.exe, igrom or igrom.app.
- A loading screen should appear, after which you can start your work! See the User Guide for more info.
iGROM as a plugin to Eclipse
If you have an existing Gallileo (3.5.x) or Helios (3.6.x) installation, you can add ASPIDE via our update site.
- Start your Eclipse.
- In the Menu, click "Help" and then select "Install new Software".
- Make sure the "Contact all update sites during install to find required software" checkbox is selected!
- In the "Work with:" field, enter http://igrom.sourceforge.net/updatesite (no trailing slash!).
- Find the Answer Set Programming category (you may need to scroll up to see it), select it, and press "Next".
- Press "Next" again, accept the license, and press "Finish".
- If you see a pop-up that requires you to accept certificates, check all relevant certificates and continue (those are Eclipse platform dependencies), and if you see a pop-up that asks about installing unsigned content (that would be iGROM), accept that as well.
- On being prompt to restart, click the restart option.
You're done! See the User Guide for more info on how to work with iGROM.
