Installation

Flatpak

Formiko exist in Flathub repository as cz.zeropage.Formiko. If you are new with Flatpak, see setup guide.

# add Flathub repository as root
flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub https://flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo

# install Formiko as user
flatpak install flathub cz.zeropage.Formiko

# run Formiko
flatpak run cz.zeropage.Formiko

Debian based

Debian based distributions use sometimes versions in package names. Here are example for Debian Stretch version. If you use different version, your gtksource or webkit2 could have another version name.

# python3.5, gtk3, librsvg etc are in dependencies
apt install python3-pip python3-gi python3-docutils gir1.2-gtksource-3.0 \
            gir1.2-webkit2-4.0 gir1.2-gtkspell3-3.0
pip3 install formiko

# optionaly
apt install vim-gtk3
pip3 install docutils-tinyhtmlwriter recommonmark docutils-html5-writer

Formiko is in Debian and Ubuntu repository. So you can install it standard way.

NetBSD

There is not GtkSpell3 on NetBSD, which is need for next 1.3.x version. So you must use 1.2.x bug fix release.

NetBSD use pkgsrc, so some binaries are stored in /usr/pkg/bin directory. Formiko call vim and gvim directly. If you want to use vim version with pkgsrc, you must fix VIM_PATH variable in formiko/vim.py file.

# python3.6 is in dependecies as like gtk3
pkgin install py36-pip py36-gobject3 py36-docutils gtksourceview3 \
              librsvg webkit-gtk py36-pygments
pip3.6 install formiko

# optionaly
pkgin install vim-gtk3
pip3.6 install docutils-tinyhtmlwriter recommonmark docutils-html5-writer

FreeBSD

These you must install all these packages:

pkg install py37-gobject3 py37-docutils py37-pygments py37-pip \
    gtksourceview3 webkit2-gtk3 gtkspell3 gobject-introspection \
    librsvg2 adwaita-icon-theme

Optionaly

pkg install en-hunspell  # or other language you want
pip-3.7 install docutils-tinyhtmlwriter docutils-html5-writer m2r
You can’t perform that action at this time.
