FBThrift: Facebook's branch of apache thrift
The main focus of this package is the new C++ server, under thrift/lib/cpp2. This repo also contains a branch of the rest of apache thrift's repo with any changes Facebook has made, however the build system only supports cpp2.
Apache thrift is at http://thrift.apache.org/
Note that under GCC, you probably need at least 2GB of memory to compile fbthrift. If you see 'internal compiler error', this is probably because you ran out of memory during compilation.
Facebook's folly library: http://www.github.com/facebook/folly
In addition to the packages required for building folly, Ubuntu 13.10 and 14.04 require the following packages (feel free to cut and paste the apt-get command below):
sudo apt-get install \ flex \ bison \ libkrb5-dev \ libsasl2-dev \ libnuma-dev \ pkg-config \ libssl-dev
For your convenience, a build script is provided for ubuntu 14.04 64-bit:
cd fbthrift/thrift ./deps.sh
It will automatically pull down folly and build it, and then configure and build thrift.
Ubuntu 14.04 64-bit requires the following packages:
