Windows / Linux / macOS
Once you've installed the prerequisites for your system, you can launch a
Release build of EventStore as follows:
dotnet build -c Release src/EventStore.sln -f netcoreapp3.1 -r <runtime identifier>
<runtime identifier> needs to be replaced by the RID of the platform you want to build for.
The build scripts:
build.ps1 are also available for Linux/macOS and Windows respectively to simplify the build process.
To start a single node, you can then run:
dotnet bin/Release/EventStore.ClusterNode/netcoreapp3.1/<runtime identifier>/EventStore.ClusterNode.dll --db /path/to/db --log /path/to/logs
Note: The build system has changed after version
5.0.5, therefore the above instructions will not work for older releases.

dotnet test src/EventStore.sln
