How to download Kete and get it running on your system.
Before you install Kete, you may want to take a look at the Technical Requirements (needs updating).
You may also want to browse the source code online in the code repository here.
To download the Kete software, we recommend checking out a stable release branch from our online source repository. This makes it easier to upgrade your installation of Kete to take advantage of bug fixes and new features.
On January 1st, 2012 we marked the official release process of Kete 1.3 on the 1-3-stable branch. This branch should be seen as the current stable version of Kete. Only bug and security fixes will be added to it. It is what we recommend for sites that want to use a managed upgrade process via releases.
Note: "your_application_name" is what you would like to call your new folder where you Kete installation shall live.
First step for latest code OR getting any release:
$ git clone git://github.com/kete/kete.git your_application_name $ cd your_application_name
If you prefer to access the "bleeding edge" of new Kete features,If you wish to use the very latest code under development (referred to as "master" by convention in Git and previously called "trunk" in Subversion parlance), that's it and you are done downloading.
For release code branches, do the corresponding additional steps.
You can use the following Git command to grab the latest code for Kete 1.3:
$ git checkout --track -b 1-3-stable origin/1-3-stable
Kete 1.2 Stable
You can use the following Git command to grab the latest code for Kete 1.2:

$ git clone git://github.com/kete/kete.git your_application_name
$ cd your_application_name

"your_application_name" is what you would like to call your new folder where you Kete installation shall live.
