Bixbite Blockchain Explorer

Compilation on Ubuntu 16.04

Compile latest Bixbite development version

Download and compile recent Bixbite into your home folder:

# first install Bixbite dependecines
sudo apt update

sudo apt install git build-essential cmake libboost-all-dev miniupnpc libunbound-dev graphviz doxygen libunwind8-dev pkg-config libssl-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev libgtest-dev libreadline-dev libzmq3-dev libsodium-dev

# go to home folder
cd ~

git clone --recursive

cd bixbite/

Compile and run the explorer

Once the Bixbite is compiles, the explorer can be downloaded and compiled as follows:

# go to home folder if still in ~/Bixbite
cd ~

# download the source code
git clone

# enter the downloaded sourced code folder
cd Bixbite-blockchain-explorer

# make a build folder and enter it
mkdir build && cd build

# create the makefile
cmake ..

# altearnatively can use: cmake -DMONERO_DIR=/path/to/bixbite_folder ..
# if monero is not in ~/bixbite
# also can build with ASAN (sanitizers), for example

# compile

When compilation finishes executable xmrblocks should be created. Before running please make sure that ~/Downloads folder exists and is writable. Time zone library that explorer is using, puts there its database of time zone offsets

To run it:


By default it will look for blockchain in its default location i.e., ~/.Bixbite/lmdb. You can use --bc-path option if its in different location.
