My goal is to make Metta the platform for social, efficient and fun life on the internet. I call such internet egocentric, because it revolves around your needs and desires. See a more detailed description at https://metta.systems.
- Check out the sources:
$ mkdir Metta; cd Metta $ git clone https://github.com/metta-systems/metta.git develop $ cd develop; git checkout develop
Sources will be checked out into branch "develop" under "Metta". This extra umbrella directory is needed because toolchain builder will create Metta/toolchain for the local toolchain it builds.
brew install yasmfor example.
brew install boost
OSSP UUID implementation,
brew install ossp-uuid
brew install openssl
cdrtools (for mkisofs),
brew install cdrtools
brew install cmake
brew install ninja
brew install bochs
All dependencies in one command:
$ brew install yasm boost ossp-uuid openssl cdrtools cmake ninja bochs
- Generate a toolchain.
$ cd Metta $ sh develop/build_toolchain.sh
This is going to take a while.
If you're unable to build toolchain locally and are on a (post-) Lion Mac, download prebuilt one and unpack it.
$ cd Metta $ wget https://r.metta.systems/downloads/toolchain-x86_64-darwin.tar.bz2 $ tar xf toolchain-x86_64-darwin.tar.bz2
- Build Metta
$ cd Metta/develop/src $ sh buildit.sh
- After successful build run emulator software to try out Metta.
src directory is preconfigured for using Bochs, so you can simply type:
$ bochs -q
