How to Install Meemo on Arch Linux

Meemo is a minimalist note-taking application designed to improve productivity, organization, and clarity of thought. This tutorial will guide you through the process of installing Meemo on Arch Linux.

Prerequisites

Step 1: Install Dependencies

Meemo requires go and xorg-server-xephyr packages to be installed on your system. Open your terminal and run the following command to install these dependencies.

With yay:

yay -S go xorg-server-xephyr

With pacaur:

pacaur -S go xorg-server-xephyr

Step 2: Download and Install Meemo

  1. Open your terminal and navigate to the directory where you want to install Meemo.

  2. Clone Meemo's Git repository by running:

    git clone https://github.com/minimal-space/meemo.git
    
  3. Navigate to the Meemo directory by running:

    cd meemo
    
  4. Build the Meemo binary by running:

    make build
    
  5. Move the meemo binary to a directory in your $PATH. For example:

    sudo mv meemo /usr/local/bin
    

Step 3: Launch Meemo

  1. Open your terminal and navigate to the directory where you want your Meemo data to be stored.
  2. Run the following command to start Meemo:
    meemo
    

This will open Meemo in a separate Xephyr window. You can now start taking notes.

Congratulations! You have successfully installed and launched Meemo on your Arch Linux system.

If you want to self-host in an easy, hands free way, need an external IP address, or simply want your data in your own hands, give IPv6.rs a try!
