Build Instructions for QT Linux Wallet

Create a folder named Donationcoin in /home/ and unpack the contents of ~/donationcoin-master to that folder.

Install dependencies via Terminal:

$ sudo apt-get install build-essential libboost-all-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev libdb5.1-dev libdb5.1++-dev qt-sdk make qrencode libqrencode-dev

//In terminal navigate to the donationcoin folder.

$ cd /home/Donationcoin

//Enter into the terminal:

$ qmake -qt=qt4 "USE_QRCODE=1" "USE_UPNP=-"

//Then:

$ make

This will compile and build the QT Wallet which takes a little while, please be patient.

When finished you will have a file called Donationcoin-QT - Simply Double Click

Build Instructions for Terminal Based Linux Wallet

//Create a folder named Donationcoin in /home/ and unpack the contents of ~/donationcoin-master to that folder.

//Install dependencies via Terminal:

$ sudo apt-get install build-essential libboost-all-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev libdb5.1-dev libdb5.1++-dev qt-sdk make

//In terminal navigate to the donationcoin folder.

$ cd /home/Donationcoin

//Enter into the terminal:

$ make -f makefile.unix "USE_UPNP=-"

//This will produce a file named Donationcoind which is the command line instance of donationcoin-qt

//Now type:

$ strip Donationcoind

//When finished you will have a file called Donationcoind

//To run donationcoin

$ ./Donationcoind &

//It will complain about having no Donationcoin.conf file, we'll edit the one provided and move it into place

$ nano ~/.donationcoin/donationcoin.conf

//Edit the Username and Password fields to anything you choose (but remember them) then save the file

$ cd src/ $ ./Donationcoind &

//The server will start. Here are a few commands, google for more.

$ ./Donationcoind getinfo $ ./Donationcoind getmininginfo $ ./Donationcoind getnewaddresss

//end of guide

Development process

Developers work in their own trees, then submit pull requests when they think their feature or bug fix is ready.

If it is a simple/trivial/non-controversial change, then one of the Donationcoin development team members simply pulls it.

The patch will be accepted if there is broad consensus that it is a good thing. Developers should expect to rework and resubmit patches if the code doesn't match the project's coding conventions (see doc/coding.txt) or are controversial.

The master branch is regularly built and tested, but is not guaranteed to be completely stable. Tags are created regularly to indicate new official, stable release versions of Donationcoin.

Testing

Testing and code review is the bottleneck for development; we get more pull requests than we can review and test. Please be patient and help out, and remember this is a security-critical project where any mistake might cost people lots of money.

Automated Testing

Developers are strongly encouraged to write unit tests for new code, and to submit new unit tests for old code.

Unit tests for the core code are in src/test/. To compile and run them:

cd src; make -f makefile.unix test

Unit tests for the GUI code are in src/qt/test/. To compile and run them:

qmake DONATIONCOIN_QT_TEST=1 -o Makefile.test donationcoin-qt.pro
make -f Makefile.test
./Donationcoin-qt_test
