usage

  1. click this link to start the commonist if you have webstart installed. the webstart files of the commonist are signed with a snake oil certificate, so an ugly warning will pop up.
  2. alternatively, you can download commonist-0.9.1.zip and unpack it into a new directory. cd into this directory and start the commonist with bin/commonist (on linux or mac os x), or bin\commonist.bat (on windows).
    note: on windows, you may have to click away a requester at program startup with continue.

customization

settings directory

when the commonist needs to load a configuration file, it looks in a number of places for this file and uses the first one it finds:

  1. the settings directory. this directory is named .commonist and can be found below the current user's home directory.
  2. the etc directory. this directory is named etc and contained in the zipfile distribution.
  3. the classpath. all files in the etc directory are copied into the commonist.jar at build time.

this enables the user to provide her own configuration files by putting them into the settings directory.
