Getting Started

This section details how to install our PGP key and how to correctly edit your sources.list file.

Update your PGP key ring

To add our PGP key in your trust keyring, open a terminal, download the key and add it with the apt-key tool:

user@myhost:~$ wget

user@myhost:~$ sudo apt-key add oapubkey.gpg
[sudo] password for user: 

user@myhost:~$ rm oapubkey.gpg # clean up

Update your sources.list

Our APT repositories are organized as follows: {distribution}

The following distributions are supported:

  • xenial (Ubuntu 16.04 LTS)
  • bionic (Ubuntu 18.04 LTS)

e.g. should you want to add our release bionic packages, in a terminal, execute the following command:

user@myhost:~$ echo 'deb [arch=amd64] bionic release'  > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/openanalytics.list && apt-get update

If you want to be able to install both release and snapshot packages, run the following command:

user@myhost:~$ echo 'deb [arch=amd64] bionic release snapshot'  > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/openanalytics.list && apt-get update

You want to go Xenial with snapshot packages only? The same recipe applies:

user@myhost:~$ echo 'deb [arch=amd64] xenial snapshot'  > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/openanalytics.list && apt-get update

Congratulations! Now you're ready to install the packages from our repository.

NB: You will need to have the apt-transport-https package installed if you want to obtain the packages over HTTPS. If for some reason, you cannot use HTTPS, HTTP transport is still available but is less secure (and at your own risk).
