Telodendria is distributed as source tarballs, in true Unix fashion. If you want, you can verify the checksum of your download, and check the signature. To check the signature, you'll need signify, and the signify public key:

No downloads here yet. See the Project Status for more information.

You can find the change log in the documentation.

If your operating system has an official package or port of Telodendria, you should prefer to use that instead of manually downloading the source and building it. Consult your operating system's manual for how to install packages, as well as the official repository, to see if a package is available. If your operating system's package or port is too out of date for your tastes, please contact the package's maintainers to notify them, or offer to update the package yourself.

If your operating system does not have a package or port of Telodendria, please consult the porting(7) page for guidelines related to packaging Telodendria for your system.


Telodendria's documentation is distributed with the source code as man pages, which contain all of the information on what Telodendria is, what its goals are, how to build the source, configure it, as well as contribute to the project. The man pages are also available online for convenience:
