Portable Use

Simsapa can be used as a portable application, e.g. running it from a USB drive or a user folder.

Create a .env file in the same folder as the executable binary.

The SIMSAPA_DIR=path/to/assets-dir variable specifies the folder where the app should look for the database and other assets.

If this is folder is on a USB, the drive letter has to be updated when a different machine assign a different drive letter.


If the assets are found in that folder, the Sutta Search window will open.

If the assets are not found, they will be downloaded to the specified folder.
