This article will guide you through the process of getting your wiki up and running. It's assumed that you're using a POSIX-compatible operating system. Otherwise, you're on your own.


  • Alpine Linux: mycorrhiza package

  • AUR: mycorrhiza package

  • Gentoo: mycorrhiza and mycorrhiza-bin available in BratishkaErik’s repo

  • Nix: mycorrhiza in Nixpkgs >= 21.11

  • Docker: see the provided Dockerfile

If your distribution is missing a package for Mycorrhiza Wiki, you're encouraged to make one and send it upstream for inclusion!

Pre-built releases

Download an executable for your system for the latest release and put it into your $PATH (paths like /usr/local/bin/ work the best) with the name mycorrhiza. Sometimes, when our executable building system fails, there are no executables published. They probably won't appear for that release anymore.


You can build Mycorrhiza yourself.


Mycorrhiza's only build-time dependency is Go 1.18 toolchain. You'll also need Git to checkout the source code. You can get these programs from your distribution's repositories.

Getting the source code

Visit the GitHub repository. You can download a .zip archive by clicking Code » Download ZIP or by running:

git clone https://github.com/bouncepaw/mycorrhiza.git



make install

These commands build a mycorrhiza binary and install it in /usr/local/bin. A man page is also installed in /usr/local/share/man.


To start a wiki, run mycorrhiza path/to/your/wiki. The directory for your new wiki will be created automatically, and all relevant Git settings will be set.
