Building EOSIO

There is an automated build script that can install all dependencies and build EOSIO. The build places content in the eos/build folder. The executables can be found in subfolders within the eos/build/programs folder.

3.1. System requirements

  • 8GB RAM free required
  • 20GB Disk free required

3.2. Run the build script

cd eos


3.3. Build validation

Optionally, a set of tests can be run against your build to perform some basic validation. To run the test suite after building, start mongod and the run make test.

/usr/local/bin/mongod -f /usr/local/etc/mongod.conf &
cd build
make test

3.4. Install the executables

sudo make install
