  1. First you will need to either checkout the project git clone

    or download the zip archive then extract it on your webserver.

  2. Run npm install then follow the instructions to update your local shell.

  3. Go into ionic folder then run npm install too.

  4. Run ./bin/install to hook custom modifications on the installed node_modules.

  5. Run ./sb init to init your local project.

  6. Configure your environment with either apache or nginx with the given generated templates from step 4.

When you're done with the previous steps, reload your web server, then install using the Web installer

Web installer

  • Go to http://yourdomain.tld then follow the instructions


Developer package & resources.



If a custom development is needed for a platform, cd to the folder, then push to the local platform, the branch is named siberian

  • Platforms templates used to build/rebuild are installed from this directory, this ensure the platforms are synced & up-to-date everytime.

  • Browser platforms/Browser

  • Android platforms/Android

  • iOS platforms/Ios

  • Rebuilding a platform

    1. run siberian rebuild platformName where platformName is android | ios | browser

Note: Important

Siberian uses Cordova for its applications base, we provide pre-built android & ios binaries for convenience as not everyone owns and can build using a Mac.

If you need to rebuild native source code for all platforms, you must have a Mac and Xcode with the Command-Line Tools installed.

Pre-built binaries allows you to customize all the HTML/JS/CSS Stack of the Apps without the need of a Mac.


Every plugin used in the project is forked on GitHub, they are added as submodules in the folder plugins

A default branch named siberian is used to track and lock our modifications.


Our standalone modules are tracked into the folder modules every module has it's own git, and is versioned independantly of the Siberian Editions
