How To Compile

Build Optimization

The CMake build system will, by default, create optimized native builds for your particular system type when you build the software. Using this method, the binaries created provide a better experience and all together faster performance.

However, if you wish to create portable binaries that can be shared between systems, specify -DARCH=default in your CMake arguments during the build process. Note that portable binaries will have a noticable difference in performance than native binaries. For this reason, it is always best to build for your particular system if possible.

Linux

Prerequisites

You will need the following packages: Boost, OpenSSL, cmake (3.8 or higher), make, and git.

You will also need either GCC/G++, or Clang.

If you are using GCC, you will need GCC-7.0 or higher.

If you are using Clang, you will need Clang 6.0 or higher. You will also need libstdc++-6.0 or higher.

Ubuntu, using GCC
  • sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-toolchain-r/test -y
  • sudo apt-get update
  • sudo apt-get install aptitude -y
  • sudo aptitude install -y build-essential g++-8 gcc-8 git libboost-all-dev python-pip libssl-dev
  • sudo pip install cmake
  • export CC=gcc-8
  • export CXX=g++-8
  • git clone -b master --single-branch https://github.com/turtlecoin/turtlecoin
  • cd turtlecoin
  • mkdir build
  • cd build
  • cmake ..
  • make

The binaries will be in the src folder when you are complete.

  • cd src
  • ./TurtleCoind --version
Ubuntu, using Clang
  • sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-toolchain-r/test -y
  • wget -O - https://apt.llvm.org/llvm-snapshot.gpg.key | sudo apt-key add -

You need to modify the below command for your version of ubuntu - see https://apt.llvm.org/

  • Ubuntu 14.04 (Trusty)
  • sudo add-apt-repository "deb https://apt.llvm.org/trusty/ llvm-toolchain-trusty 6.0 main"
  • Ubuntu 16.04 (Xenial)
  • sudo add-apt-repository "deb https://apt.llvm.org/xenial/ llvm-toolchain-xenial 6.0 main"
  • Ubuntu 18.04 (Bionic)
  • sudo add-apt-repository "deb https://apt.llvm.org/bionic/ llvm-toolchain-bionic 6.0 main"

  • sudo apt-get update

  • sudo apt-get install aptitude -y

  • sudo aptitude install -y -o Aptitude::ProblemResolver::SolutionCost='100*canceled-actions,200*removals' build-essential clang-6.0 libstdc++-7-dev git libboost-all-dev python-pip libssl-dev

  • sudo pip install cmake

  • export CC=clang-6.0

  • export CXX=clang++-6.0

  • git clone -b master --single-branch https://github.com/turtlecoin/turtlecoin

  • cd turtlecoin

  • mkdir build

  • cd build

  • cmake ..

  • make

The binaries will be in the src folder when you are complete.

  • cd src
  • ./TurtleCoind --version
Generic Linux

Ensure you have the dependencies listed above.

If you want to use clang, ensure you set the environment variables CC and CXX. See the ubuntu instructions for an example.

  • git clone -b master --single-branch https://github.com/turtlecoin/turtlecoin
  • cd turtlecoin
  • mkdir build
  • cd build
  • cmake ..
  • make

The binaries will be in the src folder when you are complete.

  • cd src
  • ./TurtleCoind --version

OSX/Apple, using Clang

Prerequisites
  • Install XCode and Developer Tools.
Building
  • which brew || /usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"
  • brew install --force cmake boost llvm openssl
  • export CC=/usr/local/opt/llvm/bin/clang
  • export CXX=/usr/local/opt/llvm/bin/clang++
  • git clone -b master --single-branch https://github.com/turtlecoin/turtlecoin
  • cd turtlecoin
  • mkdir build
  • cd build
  • cmake ..
  • make

The binaries will be in the src folder when you are complete.

  • cd src
  • ./TurtleCoind --version

Windows

Prerequisites

You can build for 32-bit or 64-bit Windows. If you're not sure, pick 64-bit.

  • Download the Build Tools for Visual Studio 2019 Installer
  • When it opens up select C++ build tools, it automatically selects the needed parts
  • Install Boost (1.69 works the latest is 1.70 and doesn't work). Select the appropriate version for your system:
  • Install the latest full LTS version of OpenSSL (currently OpenSSL 1.1.0L). Select the appropriate version for your system:
Building

For 64-bit:

  • From the start menu, open 'x64 Native Tools Command Prompt for VS 2019'.
  • cd <your_turtlecoin_directory>
  • mkdir build
  • cd build
  • cmake -G "Visual Studio 16 2019" -A x64 .. -DBOOST_ROOT=C:/local/boost_1_69_0
  • MSBuild TurtleCoin.sln /p:Configuration=Release /m or MSBuild src\cli.vcxproj /p:Configuration=Release /m

For 32-bit:

  • From the start menu, open 'x86 Native Tools Command Prompt for VS 2019'.
  • cd <your_turtlecoin_directory>
  • mkdir build
  • cd build
  • cmake -G "Visual Studio 16 2019" -A Win32 .. -DBOOST_ROOT=C:/local/boost_1_69_0
  • MSBuild TurtleCoin.sln /p:Configuration=Release /p:Platform=Win32 /m

The binaries will be in the src/Release folder when you are complete.

  • cd src
  • cd Release
  • TurtleCoind.exe --version
