Jonathan Wilkes maintains the Purr Data sources in GitLab at <https://git.purrdata.net/jwilkes/purr-data>. There's also a mirror of this repository at Github which serves as a one-stop shop for the latest source and the available releases, including pre-built packages for Linux, macOS and Windows. You can find this at <https://agraef.github.io/purr-data/>. The latest packages for Linux (Debian, Raspbian, Ubuntu), macOS and Windows are available at <https://github.com/agraef/purr-data/releases>. The Linux packages are in Debian format (.deb files), the Windows package is distributed as an installer executable (.exe file). Normally you can just run the .deb or .exe packages by double-clicking them in your file manager, and walk through the installation procedure. The Mac package is distributed as a disk image (.dmg file); double-clicking the disk image in Finder opens a new Finder window, in which you can drag the application to your Application folder. The Mac and Windows packages should be self-contained, while the .deb packages will pull in a lot of dependencies, which may require some fiddling. (If you're running Ubuntu or one of its derivatives, and the .deb packages give you trouble, try using the JGU Ubuntu packages instead, see below.)

At JGU we also maintain a collection of Linux packages for Arch Linux (via the [Arch User Repositories](https://aur.archlinux.org/) a.k.a. AUR) and recent Ubuntu releases (via [Launchpad](https://launchpad.net/~dr-graef)). More information and installation instructions can be found at <https://l2orkaur.bitbucket.io/> (Arch) and <https://l2orkubuntu.bitbucket.io/> (Ubuntu). Besides Purr Data, these repositories also contain the "classic" Pd-l2ork (at least on older Ubuntu systems where Pd-l2ork 1 still runs), as well as two additional programming extensions for Pd which enable you to run [Faust](http://faust.grame.fr/) and [Pure](https://agraef.github.io/pure-lang/) externals in Pd-l2ork and Purr Data. The JGU packages also offer the advantage that they let you install both classic Pd-l2ork and Purr Data on the same system. At JGU we also maintain a collection of Linux packages for Arch Linux (via the [Arch User Repositories](https://aur.archlinux.org/) a.k.a. AUR) and recent openSUSE, Debian and Ubuntu releases (via the OBS a.k.a. [Open Build System](https://build.opensuse.org/project/show/home:aggraef)). The OBS also offers binary packages for Arch Linux. More information and installation instructions can be found at the [Installation](https://github.com/agraef/purr-data/wiki/Installation#linux) wiki page.

Of course, it is also possible to build Purr Data from source. With the latest additions to the build system, this task has become a lot less daunting than it used to be, and the Purr Data website has some [instructions](https://agraef.github.io/purr-data/#building-from-source). However, because of the large number of included externals, the build process is rather involved, requires a lot of 3rd party dependencies, and takes quite a while even on modern high-end hardware. Therefore, unless your system isn't officially supported or you have specific requirements forcing you to compile from source, we recommend using the available binaries.
