Install from Source

The binary name for jikken is jk.

We plan on adding wider support across differing platforms and package managers, but for the time being, we provide binaries for Linux, MacOS, and Windows. You can download the prebuilt binaries from our Github releases. To install from source, you must have the latest stable version of Rust.


Cargo gives you several options for installing from source.

You can install the latest package that we’ve published to Cargo:

Terminal window
cargo install jikken

You can install directly from the git repo:

Terminal window
cargo install --git

Or, you can manually clone the repo and build from the folder:

Terminal window
git clone
cd jikken
cargo install --path .
