INDI

INDI Library is the standard astronomical equipment driver for Linux and macOS.

Linux

You can install INDI with the packages provided by your Linux distribution, but as this is a rapidly moving project it is best to get the latest version directly from the project.
For example for Debian/Ubuntu see https://launchpad.net/~mutlaqja/+archive/ubuntu/ppa

macOS

INDIWebManager and INDIStarter distribution include the INDI server and the drivers.

Install INDIWebManager from: https://github.com/rlancaste/INDIWebManagerApp/releases
or
Install INDIStarter from: https://sourceforge.net/projects/indistarter/files/

Windows

There is no INDI server for Windows but you can run CCDciel on Windows to connect to a INDI server running on a remote computer, a Raspberry Pi for example.

Additional utilities

You can use IndiStarter to help to manage the INDI server and the drivers.
Download for Linux and macOS are available from https://sourceforge.net/projects/indistarter/files/

If you use a EQmod mount it can be useful to install EQmodGUI to easily control the main options. This also give you a virtual handpad to move the mount.
Download for Linux and macOS are available from https://sourceforge.net/projects/eqmodgui/files/

The INDIGO server variant work by using the INDI protocol compatibility.
