SensiNact/studio-installation

There are TWO ways to install sensiNact Studio on your computer, depending on what you want to do with the Studio.

  • If you are a sensiNact end user, you may be interested in the latest stable release of sensiNact Studio.
  • If you are a sensiNact core developper, you will need to install the studio from it sources. It will gives you access to the Studio development branch, with the latest features and the ability to debug the Studio using the source code.

IMPORTANT Please check you are using Java 8. Because Java Module System (aka Jigsaw) is breaking a lot of API, we are waiting for updates on all the libraries we rely on to perform an upgrade to the latest JDK.

For sensiNact developpers: installation from sources
