Original Imker does not work at the moment!

But temporarily you can use fixed version available here: Imker-hotfix. It works as for November 2023. It will be removed once author of Imker will fix his app himself or someone will adopt this app.

Quick start[edit]

  • Find the latest Imker release. (something like
  • Extract the .zip file and on Windows start the .exe file.
  • In Linux (Ubuntu): Extract the .zip file. You will have three different files: imker-cli.jar,imker-gui.jar and imker-gui.exe.
  • Open either imker-gui.jar or imker-cli.jar. If you face the following error
The file '/home....' is not marked as executable. If this was downloaded or copied from an untrusted source, it may be dangerous to run. For more details, read about the executable bit.

solve it by making the file executable using the following command

chmod +x ~"/Desktop/.../dist/production_x86_64-linux/rvm" = path of the file

If you want to use the CLI, open the terminal, then:

 java -jar imker-gui.jar #for a graphical user interface
 java -jar imker-cli.jar #for pure terminal use
