Prerequisites

  • Java JRE 1.8. Note that if you are using the windows installer, the JRE is included in the package.
  • Bitcoin Core 0.14+: synchronized, segwit-ready, zeromq-enabled, non-pruning, tx-indexing Bitcoin Core node. This means that on Windows you will need Bitcoin Core 0.14+.

Manual installation (Linux, MacOS, Windows)

Download the latest JAR files from https://github.com/ACINQ/eclair/releases and move the JAR to your preferred folder.

The eclair node JAR file are named as follows, pick the one you prefer:

# Without a user interface

:warning: On linux if you are using the OpenJDK JRE and want to run Eclair with a GUI, you will need to build OpenJFX yourself.

Autoinstaller (Windows only)

The installer is available for Windows only. It will install Eclair in your Windows user's AppData folder and create a shortcut on your desktop pointing to the Eclair node .exe file.
