Steel Bank Common Lisp (SBCL) and Quicklisp need to be installed. You also need SQLite.

Clone my fork of birch into your Quicklisp local projects directory:

$ cd ~/quicklisp/local-projects/ # might need to create this if it doesn't exist
$ git clone

Then, run make to build the main binary, and make migrate to build the migration utility.


Copy config.example.ini to config.ini and modify the values to suit your needs.

Run with

$ ./paroxysm-ng /path/to/config.ini

It might crash a lot. Use Restart=always or similar.

Migrating from paroxysm v1

Copy migrate.example.ini to migrate.ini and put in the PostgreSQL connection details.

Run with

$ ./paroxysm-ng-migrator /path/to/migrate.ini
