Building from Source

To build from source you'll need to create a new workspace, clone and checkout the latest release branch of this repository, install all the dependencies, and compile. If you need the latest development features you can clone from the master branch instead of the latest release branch. While we guarantee the release branches are stable, the master should be considered to have an unstable build due to ongoing development.

  • Create a ROS workspace and a source directory

      mkdir -p ~/ros-workspace/src
  • Clone the package into the source directory .

Note: Replace {MAJOR.VERSION} below with the latest major version number to get the latest release branch.

    cd ~/ros-workspace/src
    git clone -b release-v{MAJOR.VERSION}
  • Install dependencies

      cd ~/ros-workspace 
      sudo apt-get update && rosdep update
      rosdep install --from-paths src --ignore-src -r -y

Note: If building the master branch instead of a release branch you may need to also checkout and build the master branches of the packages this package depends on.

  • Build the packages

      cd ~/ros-workspace && colcon build
  • Configure ROS library path

      source ~/ros-workspace/install/setup.bash
You can’t perform that action at this time.
