Setup Indy SDK build environment for Ubuntu based distro (Ubuntu 16.04)

  1. Install Rust and rustup (

  2. Install required native libraries and utilities:

    apt-get update && \
    apt-get install -y \
       build-essential \
       pkg-config \
       cmake \
       libssl-dev \
       libsqlite3-dev \
       libzmq3-dev \
  3. libindy requires the modern 1.0.14 version of libsodium but Ubuntu 16.04 does not support installation it's from apt repository. Because of this, it requires to build and install libsodium from source:

cd /tmp && \
  curl | tar -xz && \
   cd /tmp/libsodium-1.0.14 && \
   ./configure --disable-shared && \
   make && \
   make install && \
   rm -rf /tmp/libsodium-1.0.14
  1. Build libindy

    git clone
    cd ./indy-sdk/libindy
    cargo build
    cd ..

Note: libindy debian package, installed from the apt repository, is statically linked with libsodium. For manually building this can be achieved by passing --features sodium_static into cargo build command.

  1. Run integration tests: Start local nodes pool with Docker

    If you use this method then you have to specify the TEST_POOL_IP as specified below when running the tests.

    It can be useful if we want to launch integration tests inside another container attached to the same docker network.

    • Run tests

      cd libindy
      RUST_TEST_THREADS=1 cargo test

      It is possible to change ip of test pool by providing of TEST_POOL_IP environment variable:

      RUST_TEST_THREADS=1 TEST_POOL_IP= cargo test
  2. Build indy-cli (Optional)

    indy-cli is dependent on libindy and should be built after it.

    cd cli/
    RUSTFLAGS=" -L ../libindy/target/debug" cargo build

    If you have followed the instructions to build libindy above, the default build type will be debug

    Make sure to add the libindy to the path. Replace /path/to with the actual path to the libindy directory. Using bash:

    echo "export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/path/to/libindy/target/{BUILD TYPE}" >> ~/.bashrc
    sudo ldconfig
    source ~/.bashrc

    To run indy-cli, navigate to cli/target/debug and run ./indy-cli

See libindy/ci/ubuntu.dockerfile for example of Ubuntu based environment creation in Docker.
