console wget -O - | apt-key add -

3) Update your package lists:

console apt-get update

4) Install analizo:

console apt-get install analizo


Install cpanminus and building dependencies (see "Installing dependencies on non-Debian systems" on then run cpanm:

console cpanm Analizo

From sources

Download the analizo tarball linked from the download page, extract it and run the following commands inside the analizo-x.y.z directory:

console perl Makefile.PL make sudo make install

See the file for instructions on how to install Analizo dependencies.

You need to install the dependencies before installing Analizo from sources.

Running on Ubuntu 16.04

As reported in this issue Analizo .deb package had some problems during installation on Ubuntu Xenial versions. This problem is caused by an incompatible version of Perl. So, to workaround this follow those steps.

1) Install perlbrew. Perlbrew is a management tool to install diferent versions of Perl without mixing out with your local enviroment. Install and check if the instalation was sucessufull: console sudo apt install perlbrew perlbrew --version

2) Install a newest version of Perl: console perlbrew init perlbrew install perl-5.26.1 perlbrew switch perl-5.26.1

3) This step will change you to an enviroment with the Perl you just installed. Install cpanminus: console cpan App::cpanminus

4) It's important before you install Analizo that you have this following dependencies: console sudo apt install libssl-dev libmagic-dev libzmq-dev libexpat1-dev gnuplot git

5) Then you can install Analizo console cpanm Analizo

Using Docker

You can run your development environment without installing any dependency, using only the last docker image released.


docker run --rm \ -v $LOCAL_REPO_PATH:/home/analizo/ \ -v $FOLDER_TO_ANALIZE:/src/ \ analizo/stable:1.22.0 \ bash -c "cd /src && analizo $1 $2 $3 $4"


This first volume will map the your local development Analizo to the path of Analizo inside the container. Making it run your local version instead of the original 1.22.0 code.
The second volume will map your folder to be analized and put it inside the /src of the container to be analized by the new analizo receiving the $n parameters. If you need more than 4 parameters, some $5 or more should be added.

To make it easier to use, you can create a bash function configured for your local pc, inside your ~/.bashrc, as such:


danalizo(){ path_to_local_repo=/absolute/path/to/dev_analizo/ docker run --rm -v $path_to_local_repo:/home/analizo/ -v $PWD:/src/ analizo/stable:1.22.0 bash -c "cd /src && analizo $1 $2 $3 $4" } Now you can use your local analizo as: bash danalizo

danalizo metrics goodcode.c

danalizo graph --modules ./myproject/ ``` Warning : We are using $PWD to copy the files to be analyzed to the container, so you can only analyze files and folders inside your current folder, do NOT use absolute paths or like: "danalizo metrics ../../file.c" or "danalizo graph /home/user/".
