It’s a web-based application, so you will need a supported web browser to interact with it. On GNU/Linux, the program is distributed as a native installed for RPM-based distributions of Linux, as well as a universal sources package. Detailed installation and usage instructions, as well as various examples of usage, can be found in the project’s website (see link at the end of the article).
Under the hood and supported operating systems
Taking a look under the hood of the Artifactory application, we can notice that it has been written entirely in the Java programming language, which means that it will work perfectly on any operating system where the JRE (Java Runtime Environment) technology is supported, including GNU/Linux, Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X. Both 64-bit and 32-bit CPU architectures are supported at this time.
