In order to pull all third party dependencies, either clone ViyaDB sources using --recursive flag, or run this command afterwards:

git submodule update --init --recursive

The easiest way to build ViyaDB is using viyadb/devenv Docker image:

docker run --rm -v $(pwd):/viyadb viyadb/devenv:latest /viyadb/scripts/
