It's easiest to set up on Linux systems, specifically Debian systems using systemd (such as Raspberry Pi's default OS or any Ubuntu distribution). It should work on Mac and Windows, but I am unable to test on those.
If you decide to use something like Windows or Mac, I don't really have any recommendations on how to make SolarThing start when the system boots up, but I might look into adding documentation for that if that's something you want to do.
The documentation references a lot of commands as if you were setting it up on the command line, but you could also just download the zip and follow the steps that way too. However, by downloading the zip file it makes SolarThing more difficult to update because you can't just run the "git pull" command. When you update SolarThing all you should have to do is update the jar file in the "program" directory, so it's not too difficult.
