Build it from Source

If you're a system integrator, a developer or someone who likes to understand how things work, then the best way to get your hands on Alpaca is to build Alpaca from source.

The build is pretty straightforward. Check the file for precise instructions.

It uses Bower, Node and Gulp to produce different distributions. It also optionally uses Jekyll to produce the web site, documentation and samples, all of which you can run locally.

Here is a link to the download of the project source:

Archived / Old Releases

We used to provide online documentation to older versions of Alpaca. We no longer do. Instead, we ask that you check out the source code for your given release and build the web site from scratch. The web site is contained along with the source and so you should be able to build the site and reference all of the documentation that way.

The web site that you're looking at presently is for the current release. Going forward, we're going to stick with that and suggest that you upgrade your Alpaca to the latest version.
