Download the Aneamal Translator

The Aneamal Translator translates Aneamal files on a server automatically to HTML when they are requested by a web browser. The translator is offered under a free and open-source software license.

The Aneamal Translator currently requires PHP 8.0 on an Apache Server with support for mod_rewrite in .htaccess. Many affordable web hosting offers fulfill this. Ask your web hosting provider about it, if you are unsure.
