Either install using apt-get

  • Add the SPARKL signing key, package repo and update (once only)

    sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys C58A47E1 sudo add-apt-repository 'deb [arch=amd64] http://sparkl.release.s3.amazonaws.com xenial main' sudo apt-get update
  • Install the OpenSPARKL sse

    sudo apt-get install -y sse
  • Create a SPARKL node directory in (say) your home directory

    mkdir ~/mynode
  • Change into your node directory and start an sse in it

    cd ~/mynode sse start
  • Check the node has started ok

    sse list

Now would be a good time to install the SPARKL CLI.

Or, you can point your browser at http://localhost:8000.

Or download and run the OpenSPARKL sse self-installer

  • The self-installer is a self-contained shell file on the SPARKL GitHub repository

    curl -LO https://github.com/opensparkl/sse_core/releases/download/v1.3.3/sse-Linux-4.15.0-38-generic-x86_64.sh
  • Run the installer and follow the prompts. The installer needs write permission to the installation directories which by default are under /usr/local/.

    sudo sh ./sse-Linux-4.15.0-38-generic-x86_64.sh
  • Create an sse node directory in (say) your home directory

    mkdir ~/mynode
  • Change into your node directory and start an sse in it

    cd ~/mynode sse start

Now would be a good time to install the SPARKL CLI.
