Its primary purposes is to provide Universa project with the high-performance network-capable executing environment, capable of executing the business logic written on modern, convenient and programmers-friendly programming language, being also free of licensing issues (such as, the current Oracle policy of JDK licensing).
For the documentation on the U8 project, please view the U8 page in Universa KB.
The latest documentation on the whole Universa project is available in Universa Knowledge Base at kb.universablockchain.com. For a visual guide on the documentation topics, visit the Universa Development Map at lnd.im/UniversaDevelopmentMap.
To build U8, you need the following packages installed:
- Clang version 8 or higher – distributed within the LLVM.org project. This is the primary compiler used to build the project.
- G++ version 8 or higher – used to provide the standard C++ library for the Clang to compile.
- Cmake, for the building process.
# Set clang as active compiler export CC=/usr/bin/clang-8 export CXX=/usr/bin/clang++-8 # Prepare cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release -G "CodeBlocks - Unix Makefiles" -B./cmake-build-release . # Clean cmake --build ./cmake-build-release/ --target clean -- -j # Buildbuild-release cmake --build ./cmake-build-release --target all -- -j
After that, in the
cmake-build-release directory you get the
cd cmake-build-release ./u8 ../testmain.js
