Build Steps

Blixt targets three platforms right now: Web, Android and iOS.

The web target is only used for prototyping and is not a real wallet.

Web

The easiest way get started is to build the web version, because you only need NodeJS and Yarn installed. For the other targets you need to install their respective toolchains and also golang & gomobile in order to build lnd for Blixt.

The web version is not used as a real wallet and is only for fast prototyping. It's useful if you want to make design and GUI changes.

  • Install Node and Yarn
  • Install Node packages: yarn
  • Generate proto files: yarn gen-proto
  • Start the web server: yarn web

Android

To start the application:

  • Run: yarn start-metro
  • Run: yarn android:mainnet-debug or yarn android:testnet-debug

iOS

To build the iOS version, a computer running macOS is required. You also need an Apple Developer account, although you do not need to be enrolled in the Developer Program.

  • Install Xcode, Node and Yarn
  • Build lnd for iOS by following the steps in build-ios-framework.md
  • Install Node packages: yarn
  • Generate proto files: yarn gen-proto
  • Install CocoaPods libs: cd ios && pod install
  • Setup team signing:
    • Open ios/BlixtWallet/BlixtWallet.xcworkspace with Xcode
    • Login with your Apple Developer account if Xcode asks you to
    • Click on BlixtWallet in the left column
    • Click on the Signing & Capabilities tab
    • Choose your Team in the dropdown and choose a new unique Bundle Identifier (cannot be the same as the ones released on the App Store). Do this for every configuration

To start the application:

  • Run: yarn start-metro
  • Run: yarn ios:mainnet-debug --device "<your device name>" or build from Xcode

macOS

To build the macOS version, a computer running macOS is required.

  • Install Xcode, Node and Yarn
  • Build lnd for macOS by following the steps in build-ios-framework.md
    • Intead of running make ios, run make macos or make apple
  • Install Node packages: yarn
  • Generate proto files: yarn gen-proto
  • Install CocoaPods libs: cd macos && pod install

To start the application:

  • Run: yarn start-metro
  • Build app from Xcode or run yarn macos:mainnet-debug
