Just grab the one with the highest version with your browser or with wget and install it.

After installation, the modRana icon should show up among the other icons.

To run modRana from the CLI, use this command (if the package wants to be Ovi store compatible, it can't put files to /usr/bin so this startup script is used):

sh /opt/modrana/run/harmattan

Installation package for Nemo Mobile

Just add the modRana-nemo COBS repository and install modRana using zypper:

su
zypper ar http://repo.pub.meego.com/home:/MartinK:/modrana:/modrana-nemo/CE_MW_Shared_Mer_Core-next_armv7hl/ modrana-nemo
zypper up
zypper install modrana

Thats it, you should now have a nice blue modRana icon in your icon grid. :) You can also start modRana from command line like this:

modrana

Optional - running the modRana GTK GUI I've succeeded in building the GTK library and its Python bindings for Nemo, so you can also run modRana with the classic GTK UI on Nemo. Just add my Nemo repository and install GTK & PyGTK:

zypper ar http://repo.pub.meego.com/home:/MartinK:/nemo/CE_MW_Shared_Mer_Core-next_armv7hl/
zypper install gtk2
zypper install pygtk2

And then you can run the modRana GTK UI like this:

modrana-gtk

Installation package for SHR on the Neo FreeRunner

http://www.modrana.org/packages/modrana_0.29-1_all.ipk NOTE: this package is VERY outdated, get the modRana tarball & clone it from git to get a more recent version

Cloning modRana from git

This is an alternative method for having up-to-date modRana on your device. :)

First install Git:

opkg update
opkg install git

Then clone modRana & run it:

git clone http://github.com/M4rtinK/modrana.git
cd modrana
./run/neo

To update the Git clone, just run git pull from inside the modrana directory:

git pull

FreeRunner & SHR notes

  • if running modRana from tarball or Git on SHR, you need to install some missing dependencies:
    opkg install python-misc python-netclient python-json python-compression
    
  • in default configuration, tiles are stored in /root/.modrana/maps/, because the on device space is limited, it is advised to store the tiles on the memory card, the path can be modified in user_config.conf in /root/.modrana/
  • modRana stores tiles in the same way (when not using sqlite to store tiles) as TangoGPS/FoxtrotGPS - you can configure bot to share the same map folder
  • map layers can be configured in map_config.conf in /root/.modrana/
  • Maps folder sharing configuration example:
    • our TangoGPS tiles are stored in /home/root/Maps, f.e. a OpenStreetMap layer in /home/root/Maps/OSM
    • we set tile_folder in user_config.conf to /home/root/Maps
    • then we set the !openStreetMap layer prefix OSM (/home/root/Maps/OSM -> OSM)
    • modRana will then use for OpenStreetMap layer tiles this path: /home/root/Maps + OSM -> /home/root/Maps/OSM

Installation package for Ubuntu and Debian

http://www.modrana.org/packages/modrana-0.29-1_all_SVN.deb

Tarball

This folder contains tarballs with an universal version of modRana and basically also contains the complete modRana source code:

http://www.modrana.org/tarballs/modrana/

  • just unpack and run modrana.py
  • prerequisites: python (cca 2.5+), GTK2 and Cairo, optionally Simplejson
  • when on Maemo 5, install python-hildon and python-dbus and run with python modrana.py -d n900
  • install espeak to enable text to speech

As the cutting edge tarball is generated automatically, it might be more up-to-date than the tarballs in the above mentioned directory.

Cutting edge tarball

there is also a cutting edge tarball, generated automatically from the modRana Git repository.

You can download, extract modRana like this:

wget https://github.com/M4rtinK/modrana/tarball/master -O modrana.tar.gz
tar -xvf modrana.tar.gz

Then cd into the M4rtinK-modrana-tag directory and run modRana:

python modrana.py

For more options, see the modRana CLI help:

python modrana.py --help

A simple script for testing internet connectivity

test_internet_connectivity.py

This is a CLI script for testing the availability of internet connectivity.

Changelog

Summary changelogs have been moved to the changelog page due to making the download page too long. :)

An up-to-date changelog is usually also available from the modRana packaging repository. It is generated semi-automatically when packages are being built so it should be generally more up-to-date than the summary changelog.
