The Geeklog source code can be checked out anonymously from our Mercurial repository:
hg clone http://project.geeklog.net/cgi-bin/hgwebdir.cgi/geeklog/
For detailed instructions, see Installing from the Mercurial Repository.
You can also browse the Geeklog source code by pointing your web browser to the above URL of the Geeklog Mercurial Repository.
Geeklog requires PEAR for some functions, e.g. to send emails. If you don't have PEAR installed on your webserver, download the following tarball and unpack it inside your /path/to/geeklog/system/pear directory:
Please note that Geeklog versions pulled from the Mercurial repository may require more or other PEAR packages than the official releases. The above tarball should include all you need for the current development version.
If you don't want to check out the sources yourself, a nightly tarball is available from
The Nightly Tarball already includes the required PEAR classes and can be installed just like a normal Geeklog release.
The developers try to keep the repository in a working state. However, this may not always be the case. Also, it is not recommended to mix files from the repository with previously released versions unless you know exactly what you're doing.
If you're interested in keeping up with Geeklog development, we recommend you subscribe to the geeklog-devel and geeklog-cvs mailing lists.
