Pijul depends on [libsodium](https://libsodium.org) and [openssl](https://www.openssl.org/).
# Pijul

Pijul is a version control system based on *patches*. Its fundamental promise is that two patches producible in parallel always commute. This makes the whole system more correct, and much simpler to use, as explained [in the manual](https://pijul.org/manual/why_pijul.html).

## License

The license is GPL2, or any later version at your convenience. This was changed from the time when Pijul was still a prototype, and had another license.

## Getting Started

Pijul depends on [libsodium](https://libsodium.org) and [openssl](https://www.openssl.org/). They are not always easy to install. On Unix platforms, we recommend [the Nix package manager](https://nixos.org/nix/download.html) to start hacking on Pijul.

There are packages for a number of platforms, including [NixOS](https://nixos.org), [Brew](https://formulae.brew.sh/formula/pijul) for OSX, [our own builds](https://pijul.org/downloads) for Windows, [Aur](https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/pijul/) for Arch Linux, among others.
