Download and install
Nit is still in heavy development.
The main way to get to get it from its git repository
$ git clone http://nitlanguage.org/nit.git
or to download the latest snapshot (tar.gz)
A github mirror is also available.
# Eg. for Debian Jessie (8.0) $ sudo apt-get install build-essential ccache libgc-dev graphviz libunwind-dev pkg-config # Older versions of Debian or Ubuntu need `libunwind8-dev` or `libunwind7-dev`
nit directory, just call
$ cd nit $ make
Currently, there is no official installation process, the tools and lib should just works in place.
It is possible to configure your shell environment (
MANPATH, bash completion) with the script
$ source misc/nit_env.sh
It can also register itself in the user's
.profile for future sessions with:
$ source misc/nit_env.sh install
