zathura - a document viewer
===========================

zathura is a highly customizable and functional document viewer based on the
girara user interface library and several document libraries.

Requirements
------------

The following dependencies are required:

* `gtk3` (>= 3.22)
* `glib` (>= 2.50)
* `girara` (>= 0.3.2)

The following dependencies are optional:

* `sqlite3` (>= 3.6.23): splite3 database backend
* `libmagic` from file(1): for mime-type detection
* `libsynctex` from TeXLive (>= 1.19): SyncTeX support
* `libseccomp`: sandbox support

For building zathura, the following dependencies are also required:

* `meson` (>= 0.47)
* `gettext`

The following dependencies are optional build-time only dependencies:

* `check`: for tests
* `librvsg-bin`: PNG icons
* `Sphinx`: manpages and HTML documentation
* `doxygen`: HTML documentation
* `breathe`: for HTML documentation
* `sphinx_rtd_theme`: for HTML documentation

Note that `Sphinx` is needed to build the manpages. If it is not installed, the
man pages won't be built. For building the HTML documentation, `doxygen`,
`breathe` and `sphinx_rtd_theme` are needed in addition to `Sphinx`.

If you don't want to build with support for sqlite databases, you can configure
the build system with `-Dsqlite=disabled` and sqlite support won't be available.

The use of magic to detect mime types is optional and can be disabled by
configuring the build system with `-Dmagic=disabled`.

The use of `libseccomp` to create a sandboxed environment is optional and can
be disabled by configure the build system with `-Dseccomp=disabled`. The
sandbox will by default be set to "normal" mode, which should not interfere
with the normal operation of zathura. For strict sandbox mode set `sandbox
strict` in zathurarc. Strict sandbox mode will reduce the available
functionality of zathura and provide a read only document viewer.

Installation
------------

To build and install zathura using meson's ninja backend:

    meson build
    cd build
    ninja
    ninja install

Note that the default backend for meson might vary based on the platform. Please
refer to the meson documentation for platform specific dependencies.
