Software prerequisites

In order to run TDK software as a .jar file, you need to install Java 11+ first.

Various Java 11+ builds from a number of vendors are available, some free options include Eclipse Temurin and Liberica JDK, but you can use any Java 11+ build available in your organization.

Check the version of Java on your machine with the following command:

java --version

If Java is installed correctly, this command should run successfully, and the major Java version shown in the output should be 11 or higher.

In order to run a containerized version of TDK, you need Docker.

Download the free CLI version

The latest free Synthesized TDK CLI release is available here for download.

Set your license key

If you are using a paid version, a valid licence key is required to run the Synthesized software. This can be set up either as an environment variable, or copied to a permanent hidden folder.

Environment Variable

Before running the software, save the license key to an environment variable called SYNTHESIZED_KEY:

export SYNTHESIZED_KEY="{your license key}"

Hidden Folder

Create a text file in ~/.synthesized/key that contains only the provided license key.

mkdir ~/.synthesized
echo {your license key} > ~/.synthesized/key
