About project’s structure:

dist folder has .jar files. These are the executables you want to run. src folder has project sources. nbproject folder has Netbeans project files.


Dependencies:

The program need Java JRE 1.8 or equivalent to run.

Linux: openjdk-8-jre. Debian/Ubuntu users can install something like: default-jre.

To build the project yourself install Netbeans. Netbeans should be available in most current distributions.


Run program with: java -jar something.jar

This program is tested with Windows 10 and PostX Gnu/Linux(Debian family). You should be able to run the .jar files easily without compiling the project.

While this program works on Windows, you might not get the desired results by default. Windows has only some commands(like notepad) ready for launching – without the full executable pathway.

One way to overcome the issue above, in Windows, is to create a series of custom launchers and then start the custom launchers via XRunner.
