Tuner installation


Tuner requires Java (version 6 and 7 tested).


The Tuner package needs to be built from source using the sbt build tool. Clone the repo and then run

bin/sbt compile 
bin/sbt run

from the repository directory. The first line builds tuner and the second line runs it.


To run Tuner there is a shell script, bin/tuner (for Unix/Mac) and bin/tuner.bat (for Windows). The startup scripts take care of set up java with 6GB of heap space as the default is really too small to do anything. You can adjust this using the JAVA_OPTS environment variable.

There is a pre-built project for testing purposes that you can download here. Unpack this file somewhere. If you can open it and everything draws correctly then Tuner should be at least mostly working. Here is how to open an external project:

  1. Click on the 'open other' button in the project browser Responsive image

  2. Navigate to test_data and click on the test_proj directory. Then click choose Responsive image

  3. A window such as the following should open Responsive image
