Download Source Code


The Basilisk repo has moved from BitBucket to GitHub. If you already downloaded the source code, it is recommended that you download a fresh copy.


The Basilisk software framework source code is openly hosted on Go to, log in with your GitHub account and download (see below). As this is the raw source code, you need to next install and compile the code before you can run it.

The Basilisk framework is developed using the Git version control system. The following directions explain how to clone or pull a copy from the repository.

  1. If you have not already installed lfs (Large File Storage) system, go to Git LFS Support Page to download and install lfs before pulling the Basilisk repo.

  2. If needed, create your own account

  3. Use a browser to go to the Basilisk GitHub Repository

  4. In the “Quick setup” section select the https option instead of the ssh option

  5. Copy the project url from the GitHub clone panel

  6. Clone into preferred Git client (Source Tree for instance), or just clone the repository in the directory containing Basilisk. In SourceTree, use clone from url, add the Basilisk repository url and select develop branch to pull the latest code.
