Welcome to the JeakBot installation instructions.
1. Downloading JeakBot
First. Please download a distribution archive of the version you want to run.
The archive contains the Java application and all dependencies needed to start the bot.
Here is an example for downloading the archive from a shell:
curl -o jeakbot.tar.gz https://nexus.fearnixx.de/repository/jeakbot-dist/jeakbot-1.1.6-SNAPSHOT.tar.gz
Alternatively, you can download the archive with your browser from here. (Windows users can use 7-zip or a similar archive software to unpack the archive.)
2. Extracting the archive
Secondly, extract the archive into a directory of your choice.
Here's an example for shell users again:
tar -xvf jeakbot.tar.gz
You can use GUI applications for that too, of course.
3. The file structure
The directory will now contain the following directories:
libraries(Where dependencies go)
plugins(Where plugins go)
4. Starting the Bot
Since the bot is a Java application, the bot can fairly easy be started using a simple start-up command:
java -cp "jeakbot-1.1.6.jar:libraries/*" de.fearnixx.jeak.Main
*nix users may use one of the start scripts which are included in the distribution archive. Additionally, there's an example
.service file available for systems running
Note: The bot will be terminating itself on the very first start as it does not yet know what server to connect to. For configuring the connection, proceed to the next step.
Windows users: Attention
On Windows, the start-up command looks slightly different:
java -cp "jeakbot-1.1.6.jar;libraries/*" de.fearnixx.jeak.Main
That's because Java uses
:for the CP delimiter.
