You can find prebuilt binaries for Min here. Alternatively, skip to the section below for instructions on how to build Min directly from source.

Installation on Linux

  • To install the .deb file, use sudo dpkg -i /path/to/download
  • To install the RPM build, use sudo rpm -i /path/to/download --ignoreos


If you want to develop Min:

  • Install Node.
  • Run npm install to install dependencies.
  • Start Min in development mode by running npm run start.
  • After you make changes, you can press ctrl+r (or cmd+r on Mac) twice to restart the browser.

Building binaries

In order to build Min from source, follow the installation instructions above, then use one of the following commands to create binaries:

  • npm run buildWindows
  • npm run buildMacIntel
  • npm run buildMacArm
  • npm run buildDebian
  • npm run buildRaspi (for Raspberry Pi, Raspberry Pi OS)
  • npm run buildLinuxArm64
  • npm run buildRedhat

Depending on the platform you are building for, you may need to install additional dependencies:

  • If you are using macOS and building a package for Linux, install Homebrew, then run brew install fakeroot dpkg first.
  • If you are using macOS or Linux and building a package for Windows, you will need to install Mono and Wine.
  • If you are building a macOS package, you'll need to install Xcode and the associated command-line tools. You may also need to set your default SDK to macOS 11.0 or higher, which you can do by running export SDKROOT=/Applications/ The exact command will depend on where Xcode is installed and which SDK version you're using.
  • To build on Windows, you'll need to install Visual Studio. Once it's installed, you may also need to run npm config set msvs_version 2019 (or the appropriate version).

Contributing Translations

Adding a new language

  • Find the language code that goes with your language from this list.
  • In the localization/languages directory, create a new file, and name it "[your language code].json".
  • Open your new file, and copy the contents of the localization/languages/en-US.json file into your new file.
  • Change the "identifier" field in the new file to the language code from step 1.
  • Inside the file, replace each English string in the right-hand column with the equivalent translation.
  • (Optional) See your translations live by following the development instructions above. Min will display in the same language as your operating system, so make sure your computer is set to the same language that you're translating.
  • That's it! Make a pull request with your changes.

Updating an existing language

  • Find the language file for your language in the localization/languages directory.
  • Look through the file for any items that have a value of "null", or that have a comment saying "missing translation".
  • For each of these items, look for the item with the same name in the en-US.json file.
  • Translate the value from the English file, replace "null" with your translation, and remove the "missing translation" comment.
  • Make a pull request with the updated file.
