Electrum-Stratis - Lightweight Stratis client

Licence: MIT Licence
Original Author: Thomas Voegtlin
Port Maintainer: dev0tion
Language: Python

Getting started

Electrum is a pure python application. However, if you want to use the Qt interface, then you need to install the Qt dependencies:

sudo apt-get install python-qt4

If you downloaded the official package (tar.gz), then you can run Electrum from its root directory, without installing it on your system; all the python dependencies are included in the 'packages' directory. To run Electrum from its root directory, just do:


You can also install Electrum on your system, by running this command:

python install

This will download and install the Python dependencies used by Electrum, instead of using the 'packages' directory.

If you cloned the git repository, then you need to compile extra files before you can run Electrum. Read the next section, "Development Version".

Development version

Check out the code from Github:

git clone git://
cd electrum-stratis

Run install (this should install dependencies):

python install

Compile the icons file for Qt:

sudo apt-get install pyqt4-dev-tools
pyrcc4 icons.qrc -o gui/qt/

Compile the protobuf description file:

sudo apt-get install protobuf-compiler
protoc --proto_path=lib/ --python_out=lib/ lib/paymentrequest.proto

Create translations (optional):

sudo apt-get install python-pycurl gettext

Creating Binaries

In order to create binaries, you must create the 'packages' directory:


This directory contains the python dependencies used by Electrum.

Mac OS X

# On MacPorts installs:
sudo python py2app

# On Homebrew installs:
ARCHFLAGS="-arch i386 -arch x86_64" sudo python py2app --includes sip

sudo hdiutil create -fs HFS+ -volname "Electrum-Stratis" -srcfolder dist/ dist/electrum-stratis-VERSION-macosx.dmg


See contrib/build-wine/README file.


See gui/kivy/Readme.txt file.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
