There are two ways to acquire Sakai source code. You can choose to download a packaged *.zip or *tar.gz file from Sakai's release page or check out the code directly from our code repository using Github .
The Sakai Demo is a pre-built version of Sakai with Apache Tomcat and a simple configuration, perfect for a quick and easy demo of Sakai. Setup of MySql is required. The demo is NOT intended for large scale implementations. It is suitable only for evaluating the software and running small pilot implementations on a single server.
The Sakai Binary is a pre-built version of Sakai without Apache Tomcat, jar dependencies, or extra configuration files. Download the Binary release if you want to just drop the Sakai bundle into a pre-existing Tomcat environment.
The Sakai Source includes Sakai portal, tool and service source code. Start from Source if you plan to make any code-level changes to your Sakai system.
