Homebrew (Mac & Linux)

brew install DevCleaner/devcleaner/devcleaner

To upgrade

brew upgrade devcleaner
scoop bucket add kdash-bucket https://github.com/DevCleaner/scoop-devcleaner

scoop install devcleaner

Chocolatey (Windows)

Choco package located here. Since validation of the package takes forever, it may take a long while to become available after a release. I would recommend using Scoop instead for Windows.

choco install kdash

# Version number may be required for newer releases, if available:
choco install devcleaner --version=0.1.0

To upgrade

choco upgrade devcleaner --version=0.1.0

Run the below command to install the latest binary. Run with sudo if you dont have write access to /usr/local/bin. Else the script will install to current directory

Binaries for macOS, Linux and Windows are available on the releases page

  1. Download the latest binary for your OS.

    1. cd to the file you just downloaded and run tar -C /usr/local/bin -xzf downloaded-file-name. Use sudo if required.

If you have Cargo installed then you install KDash from crates.io

cargo install devcleaner

Note: On Debian/Ubuntu you might need to install libxcb-xfixes0-dev and libxcb-shape0-dev. On Fedora libxcb and libxcb-devel would be needed.

Note: On Linux you might need to have package xorg-dev (Debian/Ubuntu) or xorg-x11-server-devel (Fedora) or equivalent installed for the copy to clipboard features to work

Note: If you are getting compilation error from openSSL. Make sure perl and perl-core are installed for your OS.

You can also clone the repo and run cargo run or make to build and run the app
