This page is for installing the pre-compiled binary versions of the Overviewer. If you want to build the Overviewer from source yourself, head to :doc:`Building <building>`. If you have already built The Overviewer, proceed to :doc:`running`.

The latest prebuilt packages for various systems will always be found at the Overviewer Downloads page.


Running Windows and don't want to compile the Overviewer? You've come to the right place!

  1. Head to the Downloads page and download the most recent Windows download for your architecture (32 or 64 bit).

  2. For 32 bit you may need to install the VC++ 2008 (x86) and VC++ 2010 (x86) redistributables.

    For 64 bit, you'll want these instead: VC++ 2008 (x64) and VC++ 2010 (x64)

  3. That's it! Proceed with instructions on :doc:`running`.

Debian / Ubuntu

We provide an APT repository with pre-built Overviewer packages for Debian and Ubuntu users. To do this, add the following line to your /etc/apt/sources.list

deb ./

Note that you will need to have the apt-transport-https package installed for this source to work.

Our APT repository is signed. To install the key (and allow for automatic updates), run

wget -O - | sudo apt-key add -

Then run apt-get update and apt-get install minecraft-overviewer and you're all set! See you at the :doc:`running` page!

CentOS / RHEL / Fedora

Prerequisites for CentOS/RHEL 7

Enable EPEL to get a release of Python 3:

yum install

The official instructions also recommend enabling a few additional repositories, as some EPEL packages may depend on them. However, this is only relevant if you are not using CentOS:

subscription-manager repos --enable "rhel-*-optional-rpms" --enable "rhel-*-extras-rpms"  --enable "rhel-ha-for-rhel-*-server-rpms"

Installing the Overviewer

We provide a RPM repository with pre-built packages for users on RPM-based distros. To add the Overviewer repository to YUM, just run

wget -O /etc/yum.repos.d/overviewer.repo

Then to install Overviewer run

yum install Minecraft-Overviewer

After that head to the :doc:`running` page!
