Installation instructions


Start the DMG you’ve just downloaded and follow instructions that will show up. It’s like normal Mac app install.


1. Download AppImage file
2. Make it executable
3. Run it

If you get an error mentioning a sandbox, try running it with –no-sandbox option: ./Gapminder+Offline.AppImage –no-sandbox


Download exe installer above, run it and follow instructions that will show up. It’s like normal Windows app install.

If you are not allowed to install programs on your school or company computer, use the portable version (download links given above). Portable means it does not require installation, only unpacking. Once unpacked, you can move the app between computers on a USB stick and it should still work.

1. Download the zip file for Windows. When download is complete, go to your Download folder (or the folder you chose to download the zip file). Select the zip file and click on Compressed Folder Tools in the top title bar.

2. Select the Extract all option.

3. Select the destination for the extracted folder, and click Extract.

4. Once the extraction is complete, double click on the file Gapminder Offline.exe to run the tool.
