Instructions for installing Ximera locally.

Install ximeraLaTeX

Visit the repo on XimeraProject/ximeraLatex GitHub page and click the “Clone in Desktop” button.

Create the directory structure:


and move ximeraLatex to ~/Library/texmf/tex/latex/. This will allow all of your documents to find ximera.cls. Once you move ximeraLatex, you will need to tell your GitHub client where to look for it, you can do this using “find files.”

Install xake

Xake is Ximera’s version of “make” and it converts the LATEX source into HTML.

First you need HomeBrew. The following command, typed in a terminal window
     /usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL"
Should be all you need.
Then you need to install Go. The following command, typed in a new terminal window

     brew install go --cross-compile-common
again should be all you need.
Install pkg-config and libgit2. This can be done via HomeBrew:
     brew install pkg-config
brew install libgit2  
brew install gpg  
brew install mupdf
If you get an error Error: An unsatisfied requirement failed this build just follow directions given.
Now perform the following commands in terminal:
     mkdir -p ~/go/src/
export GOPATH=$HOME/go  
cd ~/go/src/  
git clone  
brew install ximeraproject/xake/xake
