Building on OS X
BitShares OS X Build Instructions
Install XCode and its command line tools by following the instructions here: https://guide.macports.org/#installing.xcode. In OS X 10.11 (El Capitan) and newer, you will be prompted to install developer tools when running a devloper command in the terminal. This step may not be needed.
Install Homebrew by following the instructions here: http://brew.sh/
brew doctor brew update
brew install boost cmake git openssl autoconf automake libtool brew link --force openssl
Optional. To support importing Bitcoin wallet files:
brew install berkeley-db
Optional. To use TCMalloc in LevelDB:
brew install google-perftools
Clone the Bitshares repository:
git clone https://github.com/bitshares/bitshares-core.git cd bitshares-core
git submodule update --init --recursive cmake . make
Notes: As mentioned elsewhere, Bitshares depends on the third-party libraries "Boost" and "OpenSSL". These libraries need to be in certain version ranges. At the moment, Boost needs to be between 1.57 and 1.65. OpenSSL needs to be in the 1.0.x range.
Boost: You can check which version(s) of boost you have by asking brew:
brew search boost
To install another version of Boost (such as 1.60):
brew install email@example.com
OpenSSL: You may have an older version of OpenSSL than is required. If so, have brew get the latest:
brew upgrade openssl
Compiling with these new versions: We must now tell cmake where these libraries are. Instead of the "cmake ." mentioned above, we use:
cmake -DBOOST_ROOTfirstname.lastname@example.org -DOPENSSL_ROOT_DIR=/usr/local/opt/openssl .
and then proceed with the normal
