Building and Installing


Currently only building on Linux systems is supported, if you wish to compile on another system, please reach out because help is needed for more builds/



To get all the required dependencies, run the command below:

sudo apt-get install build-essential libcurl4-openssl-dev libboost-log-dev libboost-system-dev libboost-filesystem-dev libboost-thread-dev libzmq3-dev -y


To build, make sure you have installed all the dependencies, then use the make command to build.


To install, after you have built Lightning Rod, use make install to install lightning rod to your PATH. You may need to use sudo make install depending on your permissions.

Afterwards use lrod to run Lighting Rod.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
