Installs SikuliX via SikuliX Setup.

Set setup attributes in your attributes file, such as:

Include the sikulix default recipe (or include sikulix in your run list):

include_recipe 'sikulix::default'


Pack1: I want SikuliX, containing the Sikuli IDE and allowing to run Sikuli scripts from commandline.

  • node['sikulix']['setup']['ide_scripting']['jython'] - Python language level 2.7. Default false.
  • node['sikulix']['setup']['ide_scripting']['jruby'] - Ruby language level 1.9 and 2.0. Default false.

Pack2: I want to develop in Java, Jython or other Java aware scripting language using NetBeans, Eclipse, or other IDE's.

For Mac and Windows only: I plan to use the Tesseract based OCR features (You Should know what you are doing!).

  • node['sikulix']['setup']['tesseract_ocr'] - Default false.

I want the packages to be usable on Windows, Mac, Linux (they contain the stuff for all systems - one pack for all).
With these options not selected, the setup process will only add system specific native stuff (Windows: support for
both Java 32-Bit and Java 64-Bit is added).

I want to try the experimental Sikuli Remote feature (getting sikulixremoteserver.jar).

  • node['sikulix']['setup']['remoteserver'] - Default false.


  • node['sikulix']['setup']['jvm_args'] - Default -Xmx128m.

  • node['sikulix']['remoteserver']['username'] - Username of account to use for automatic logon.
