To get started with Yoda is easy. There is no need to download or install it separately as you can run Yoda straight off GitHub via the Yoda Landing Page.

Landing Page Graphics

In order to access issues in non-public repositories, you will need to set an appropriate personal GitHub Token. This is explained in the MANUAL linked via the landing page.

You can of course copy Yoda to your own Webserver, GitHub repository, or GitHub Enterprise. Simply get all the files in the /docs folder.


Documentation is available either via the Yoda landing page, or directly here.

Furthermore, an Yoda presentation is available via the Yoda landing page or here.


TODO: Right now, there is no automated testing for Yoda. Plan is to use Selenium.
