Prerequisite

First, ensure you have Node.js installed.

Install

Next, download or clone the Chalktalk repository in full, then install the server's npm dependencies

git clone https://github.com/kenperlin/chalktalk.git --depth=1   # download chalktalk via git
cd ./chalktalk/server/
npm install                                                  # install chalktalk server's dependencies in server/node_modules

Extra Steps for Installation on Windows

You need (specifically) Python 2.7. Please install python27 and add that folder to the PATH env variable. In addition, you must install Windows build tools. Once Python 2.7 and Windows build tools are installed, restart the terminal and run npm install.

Running the server

On macOS, open the terminal, go into /chalktalk (project's root), then run :

./run

On linux, open the terminal, go into /chalktalk (project's root), then run :

./run.linux

This will run a node.js server in the background and try to automatically open Chrome to the Chalktalk URL.

Windows

On Windows, open the terminal, go into /chalktalk (project's root), then run :

node server/main.js.

Running Chalktalk

Within your web browser, open localhost:11235. You can now use Chalktalk.
