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 github.org. Go to https://github.com/AVSLab/basilisk, 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.
