Installation from sources

You will need Xcode5 for building it from sources:

git clone
cd asepsis
git submodule update --init
rake build
rake install
sudo reboot

Note: for installing debug version which is more verbose in use rake build_debug instead of rake build. Also you may then run rake debug_test to check if asepsis works as expected.

Note: before rake build you might need to open Asepsis.xcodeproj once in Xcode. For some reason the xcodebuild hangs without that.


asepsisctl uninstall
