Download Germinate

The most recent release of Germinate is 3.5.0 (16th May 2018). View the release notes to see what’s new.

Germinate 3 consists of two parts:

  • Germinate 3 Core: The actual application.
  • Germinate 3 Gatekeeper: Used to restrict and regulate user access to all instances of Germinate.

Please note that both parts are necessary for Germinate 3 to work as expected but you do not need to use password authentication if you are developing a public site. You can also restrict certain features to registered users while maintaining public functionality.

Both downloads contain a MySQL dump that can be used to set up the database and the source code for the client and server side of Germinate 3 and Germinate 3 Gatekeeper respectively. Please consult the documentation for installation instructions. Our documentation also includes a getting started guide.

Germinate 3 Installation Script (Linux only)
