Downloads

Sticker is available either in self-installer packages or in binary and source ZIP archives (most people will want the installer). Windows users have the additional option of a native Windows version which is smaller and does not need a Java runtime. The Unix ZIP archives follow Unix path conventions.

License

The source code for Sticker 3 is available under the terms of the Mozilla Public License, however an elvin router license is required for commercial use of Elvin. The source code for the previous major release (Sticker 2) is available under the slightly more restrictive GNU Public License.

You can also deploy Sticker 2.3 in a web page using a Java applet version of Sticker called Sticklet. You can try Sticklet live by clicking here. Please note that Sticklet will only be able to connect to the DSTC public Elvin server if you are not behind a firewall, but can run in disconnected mode as a demonstration.

The Sticklet ZIP file contains the Sticklet JAR file and an example web page using Sticklet. Sticklet is provided under the same GPL license as Sticker: the source code for Sticklet is included in the Sticker source code distribution linked above. See here for information on using Sticklet.
