Electrum-NMC - Lightweight Namecoin client

Electrum-NMC is a pure python application. If you want to use the Qt interface, install the Qt dependencies:
sudo apt-get install python3-pyqt5
If you downloaded the official package (tar.gz), you can run Electrum-NMC from its root directory, without installing it on your system; all the python dependencies are included in the 'packages' directory. To run Electrum-NMC from its root directory, just do:
You can also install Electrum-NMC on your system, by running this command:
sudo apt-get install python3-setuptools python3 -m pip install .[fast]
This will download and install the Python dependencies used by Electrum-NMC, instead of using the 'packages' directory. The 'fast' extra contains some optional dependencies that we think are often useful but they are not strictly needed.
If you cloned the git repository, you need to compile extra files before you can run Electrum-NMC. Read the next section, "Development Version".
Check out the code from GitHub:
git clone git://github.com/namecoin/electrum-nmc.git cd electrum-nmc
Run install (this should install dependencies):
python3 -m pip install .[fast]
Render the SVG icons to PNGs (optional):
for i in lock unlock confirmed status_lagging status_disconnected status_connected_proxy status_connected status_waiting preferences namecoin-logo; do convert -background none icons/$i.svg icons/$i.png; done
Compile the icons file for Qt:
sudo apt-get install pyqt5-dev-tools pyrcc5 icons.qrc -o electrum_nmc/gui/qt/icons_rc.py
Compile the protobuf description file:
sudo apt-get install protobuf-compiler protoc --proto_path=electrum_nmc --python_out=electrum_nmc electrum_nmc/paymentrequest.proto
Create translations (optional):
sudo apt-get install python-requests gettext ./contrib/make_locale
To create binaries, create the 'packages' directory:
This directory contains the python dependencies used by Electrum-NMC.

Electrum-NMC also maintains an
auxpow branch. This branch is identical to the upstream Bitcoin version of Electrum (e.g. it doesn't have any name support or Namecoin rebranding), except that it supports AuxPoW (merged mining). It may be useful as a starting point for porting Electrum to other AuxPoW-based cryptocurrencies.
