Before we can get our hands dirty, there are a couple of steps we need to take in order to have a fully working environment to develop in with Moai SDK.
This differs from platform to platform, so feel free to jump to your platform of choice.
We'll see how to install Moai SDK in Windows and Mac OS X; for Linux users, the process is more complicated and we can't cover it here, but you'll find more information about it in this chapter as well. At the end of the chapter, you should end up with a working copy of Moai SDK installed on your system.
You'll find two download options, the release and the nightly build.
