Step 1: Run the script and follow the on screen instructions.

  bash <(curl

Step 2: Run the development server

  rails s

then visit 'http://localhost:3000' in your browser.

Step 3 (for developers): Run tests


Step 4 (for everyone): Party.

Want a production setup? Having trouble with install script? Want to install D* the slow way?

Look to more specific install guides here.
