1. OVERVIEW

Pandora is a free peer-to-peer (P2P) desktop (not web) application,
designed for ordinary people, has a graphical user interface (GUI)
and works "out of the box".

It affords functions of instant messenger, audio and video chat,
encyclopedia article and file exchange, trading platform, payment
system, distributed development system and vote system. Pandora
has its own binary protocol, uses a cryptography and trust network.

The concept of Pandora is described in the article:
https://github.com/Novator/Pandora/wiki/P2P-social-network-Pandora

See the user manual with pictures in wiki to quick start:
https://github.com/Novator/Pandora/wiki/Install-and-first-run


2. SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

Mandatory:
- Linux, Windows or Mac OS
- Ruby1.9 or higher script engine
- GTK2 graphical library
- SQLite3 database library
- OpenSSL crypto library
Optional:
- GStreamer0.1 media library


3. INSTALLATION IN UBUNTU

Do commands in terminal:

  sudo apt-add-repository -y ppa:pandora-net/ppa
  sudo apt-get update
  sudo apt-get install -y pandora-net


4. INSTALLATION IN WINDOWS

Download the installer and run it with administrator:

  https://github.com/Novator/Pandora/releases/download/0.7-alpha/pandora_setup.exe

Check sums pandora_setup.exe (size 20 427 683 byte):
MD5 bfbc13b2bbacd0af0d545964434f130c
SHA1 dc4b75ad7ebedcad0b09a3406b46ec9a040773f8

Use utility HashCheck to check sums in Windows:
  http://code.kliu.org/hashcheck/
or build-in Windows commands:
  certutil -hashfile .\pandora_setup.exe MD5
  certutil -hashfile .\pandora_setup.exe SHA1


5. INSTALLATION IN DEBIAN

Download a package and install it with root:

  https://github.com/Novator/Pandora/releases/download/0.7-alpha/pandora-net_0.7-ubuntu.deb
  dpkg -i pandora-net_0.7-ubuntu.deb
  apt-get -f -y install

Check sums pandora-net_0.7-ubuntu.deb (size 2 014 126 byte):
MD5 315c0275a95c3b25de80803d0d8026d5
SHA1 7e426db674df18adf132a1d99e16056184626b97

Use commands to check:
  md5sum ./pandora-net_0.7-ubuntu.deb
  sha1sum ./pandora-net_0.7-ubuntu.deb


6. PREPARATION OF MACOSX

Run these commands in terminal:

  xcode-select --install
  ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"
  brew update
  brew doctor
  brew install ruby
  brew install rbenv
  brew install ruby-build
  brew install openssl
  echo 'if which rbenv > /dev/null; then eval "$(rbenv init -)"; fi' >> ~/.bash_profile
  source ~/.bash_profile
  rbenv install -l
  RUBY_CONFIGURE_OPTS=--with-openssl-dir=`brew --prefix openssl` rbenv install 2.2.2
  brew install gtk+
  brew install sqlite3
  brew install Caskroom/cask/xquartz
  brew install adwaita-icon-theme
  sudo gem update --system
  rvm implode
  \curl -sSL https://get.rvm.io | bash -s stable --ruby --autolibs=enable
  rvm reload

Restart your computer. Run also:

  rvm install 2.2.2
  rvm use 2.2.2 --default
  sudo gem install sqlite3
  sudo gem install gtk2

Download and unpack master.zip (see the next chapter), run pandora.sh.


7. MANUAL INSTALLATION OR UPDATE

7.1. Download the archive and unpack it:

  https://github.com/Novator/Pandora/archive/master.zip

or download the code with a git:

  git clone --depth=1 https://github.com/Novator/Pandora.git

7.2. Install needed packages if they still are not installed:

  ruby, ruby-sqlite3, ruby-gtk2, openssl, unzip, ruby-ncurses, screen, ruby-gstreamer,
  gstreamer0.10-x, gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg, gstreamer0.10-plugins-good, gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad

7.3. Set executable rights:

  chmod +x ./pandora.sh

7.4. Copy shortcut to desktop with root and edit paths inside:

  cp ./view/pandora.desktop /usr/share/applications/
  nano /usr/share/applications/pandora.desktop

Pandora can update itself by user click to button on status bar.


8. CONSOLE USER INTERFACE

By default Pandora launches Gtk2 graphical user interface,
but you can force it to launch Ncurses console user interface:

  ./pandora.sh -c   -- this is Curses/Ncurses mode
  ./pandora.sh -s   -- run via screen or return to session
  ./util/pancurse.sh      -- run or return screen session
  ./util/pancurse.sh -d   -- run via screen like a daemon

Console interface is useful on Raspberri Pi, dedicated or
virtual servers, when you need to have day-and-night node.

Attention: CUI has pared-down functionality in comparison with GUI.
It is recommended to setup all preferences in GUI mode on desktop
computer, then move ./base/pandora.sqlite to remote computer.
