  • Compiling

    Compiling vym from scratch is pretty easy, if you have the development packages of the Qt5 toolkit installed. (Check also the homepage above for details):

  • Testing (without installing!)

    You can also run vym virtually in your webbrowser: vym is available as appliance in SUSE Studio. SUSE Studio is a very easy way to create appliances, which are customized Linux operating systems.

    All you need is to quickly create a free account and search for "vym" by user "insilmaril" in the gallery:


    The appliance can be downloaded as installable iso image, or run in the testdrive - in your webbrowser! That's a bit slow, but gives you an idea without having to install anything at all on your system.
