Building from Source

This page explains how you can build aergo from source.

If you are only interested in running the aergo tools, it is easier to use pre-built binaries or Docker images instead, as explained in Quickstart.

Prerequisites

Linux

  1. Install dependencies

    apk update
    apk add git build-base go libgcc
    
  2. Install aergo

    go get -d github.com/aergoio/aergo
    cd ${GOPATH}/src/github.com/aergoio/aergo
    git submodule init && git submodule update
    make
    
  3. Set environment

    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:${GOPATH}/src/github.com/aergoio/aergo/libtool/lib
    
  4. Run server

    ./bin/aergosvr
    

macOS (Do not support anymore)

  1. If you haven't already, install homebrew.

  2. Install dependencies

    brew install go
    brew install cmake  # optional
    brew install protobuf  # optional
    
  3. Install aergo

    go get -d github.com/aergoio/aergo
    cd `go env GOPATH`/src/github.com/aergoio/aergo
    git submodule init && git submodule update
    make
    
  4. Set environment

    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:${GOPATH}/src/github.com/aergoio/aergo/libtool/lib
    
  5. Run server

    ./bin/aergosvr
    

Windows

Building on Windows is currently not supported.

Generating protobuf files

If you changed the protobuf files, you need to re-compile the type definitions.

  1. Install protoc-gen-go

    GIT_TAG="v1.1.0" # set version of protoc-gen-go to 1.1.0, on which aergo v0.8.x depends.
    go get -u github.com/golang/protobuf/protoc-gen-go
    git -C "$(go env GOPATH)"/src/github.com/golang/protobuf checkout $GIT_TAG
    go install github.com/golang/protobuf/protoc-gen-go
    
  2. Generate type definitions from protobuf files

    make protoc
