Installing on a Mac

Installing on a Mac

Verified on OSX v10.13.4 / High Sierra.

Install Dependencies

Install libsodium

Install the libsodium package. We recommend using homebrew to do this:

brew install libsodium
Install libgmp

Install the libgmp package

brew install gmp

Retrieve Installation Package

Create a temporary folder to hold the install package and files.

mkdir ~/inst
cd ~/inst

Read how we use and store your data here. Copy the installer from Github (downloads/installers/darwin_amd64). Optionally, you can verify SHA for the file.

Unzip the package (make sure to use the appropriate filename):

tar -xf install_master_darwin-amd64.tar.gz

Installation Instructions

You are now ready to install! Run the installer from within your installation directory.

./update.sh -i -c stable -p ~/node -d ~/node/data -n

When the installer runs, it will pull down the latest update package from S3 for your platform and install it. The -n option above tells the installer to not auto-start the node. If the installation succeeds you'll be instructed to start the node manually.
