Binary releases can be obtained from the releases section of the repository. To build, issue make. This will build a binary for your platform. The binary will be put into a bin directory in the repository. After either installation, you'll want to copy the binary into your path.

Adding More Languages and Templates

To add a new language to super-hacker, create a directory named after the language you're adding in the templates directory. In there, add a file to hold the code. In that file, create a Go const that is exported from that new language package and paste in the code. Make sure to include license headers if available. If a license is needed, link to it in a comment in the file. It's preferred to include a link to the source of the code if it's not yours.

In template.go, add a new slice and reference the newly created constant. Next, add an entry in the switch statement in the Random(lang string) function.
