dnf install revelation

Build

Revelation depends on the following software:

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
