If ever you have problem while installing Hemera or third-party tools, check the Troubleshooting page.
If you don't find solution, post a request on the Help Forum.

Prepare a Workspace

You should begin preparing a workspace with enough space.
Hemera is compounded of several projects:

  • Hemera: the main project, let's call it's directory [HEMERA_ROOT_PATH]
  • HemeraTests: containing various tests scripts
  • HemeraWebModule: (since v0.2) the Web Service Module project
  • HemeraSamples: some samples (not included in binary version)
  • various tools project

Get Hemera

Hemera user

You can download Hemera binaries from the SourceForge project site:

  • enter the directory of the version you want
  • download the Hemera-vX.Y.tgz tarball (X.Y corresponding to the version)
  • uncompress it in the directory of your choice

Among other things, it will create the Hemera main project directory; called [HEMERA_ROOT_PATH] on all these pages.

Update Operating System

To setup Hemera (e.g. improving accessibility of Hemera binaries/scripts), launch as root superuser:


To help configuring the whole of Hemera, a global configuration file system has been created.

Copy [HEMERA_ROOT_PATH]/config/hemera.conf.sample to [HEMERA_ROOT_PATH]/config/hemera.conf and adapt it to your configuration.
For each tool, you can either update the corresponding configuration element (specifying an absolute path, or a path relative to [HEMERA_ROOT_PATH]) or ensure it is available from the PATH environment variable (specifying only the file name of the tool).

Third-Party tools availability

See Install third-party tools.
Each third-party tool binary path, and data file path are checked when using corresponding core module.
A specific error message will be given in case of failure.
