revelation Documentation

Some Fossies usage hints in advance:

  1. To see the Doxygen generated documentation please click on one of the items in the steelblue colored "quick index" bar above or use the side panel at the left which displays a hierarchical tree-like index structure and is adjustable in width.
  2. If you want to search for something by keyword rather than browse for it you can use the client side search facility (using Javascript and DHTML) that provides live searching, i.e. the search results are presented and adapted as you type in the Search input field at the top right.
  3. Doxygen doesn't incorporate all member files but just a definable subset (basically the main project source code files that are written in a supported language). So to search and browse all member files you may visit the Fossies revelation-0.5.4.tar.xz contents page and use the Fossies standard member browsing features (also with source code highlighting and additionally with optional code folding).

Install

  • Fedora
dnf install revelation

Build

Revelation depends on the following software:

  • GTK3-3.22
  • PyGObject
  • Python 3 (currently working on Python 3.7)
  • pycryptodomex
  • libpwquality

To build revelation first cd to a suitable location and run:

git clone https://github.com/mikelolasagasti/revelation.git

Build with autotools

Navigate to the directory where revelation source has been downloaded and type these commands:

cd revelation
./autogen.sh
./configure #by default it will be /usr/local
make
sudo make install

Build with Meson

Navigate to the directory where revelation source has been downloaded and type these commands:

$ cd revelation
$ meson configure --prefix=$HOME/install _build
$ cd _build
$ ninja install

Meson will build revelation in the _build directory, and install it in install in your home directory. You can choose whatever prefix you like.

Because the installation directory is non-standard, to run revelation you will have to define some environment variables. In this example:

$ export XDG_DATA_DIRS=$HOME/install/share:$XDG_DATA_DIRS
$ export PYTHONPATH=$HOME/install/lib/python3.8/site-packages

and then run revelation:

$ $HOME/bin/revelation
