Other ways to install Jalview

To see what's new, view the Jalview Release Notes (new release notes posted ASAP!).

If you need the source, then please download the Jalview Source Tarball.

Running a specific version of Jalview

If you need to install a specific version and have an existing Java installation then we recommend downloading the Jalview Executable Jar (see table above). The Version Archive provides links to builds for earlier versions. Alternatively, up to date versions of Jalview designed for command line use are also available via conda and homebrew.

Install via Conda

A Jalview conda package is also available (tested on OSX and Linux) thanks to the great folk over at BioConda

To install via conda, first download Miniconda for your platform.
Then: open a terminal and type:

conda config --add channels defaults
conda config --add channels bioconda
conda config --add channels conda-forge
conda install jalview

Thanks to ej-technologies for granting a free install4j license to the Jalview Open Source Project. Jalview's installers were built with the install4j multi-platform installer builder and gradle.
