Services Software Community About Us

Starfish is distributed as source code, written primarily in Tcl/Tk. The code itself is simple, compact, and easily customized. Its power derives from the use of several excellent open source installation components, which are listed below in order of dependency.

Starfish is known to work with earlier versions of the components than those listed. However, we encourage you to install the latest versions whenever possible, in order to take advantage of ongoing improvements to functionality and security.
