Install from source
Please note that, although installing from source is the recommended route for installing namada, it can prove to be difficult, and is not recommended for beginners. For a first time installation, the installation process can take up to an hour. Building binaries from source can also take a long time, depending on the machine.
Ensure the correct pre-requisites have been downloaded and installed.
Once all the required dependencies have been installed, the next step is to clone the source code from the Namada repository (opens in a new tab) and build it with:
git clone https://github.com/anoma/namada.git
During internal and private testnets, checkout the latest testnet branch using
git checkout $NAMADA_TESTNET_BRANCH.
$NAMADA_TESTNET_BRANCH is the name of the testnet branch, which will be specified in the testnet documentation.
The binaries should be added to
$PATH from the
make install command.
However, if this for some reason did not work, a solution may be to copy the binaries
$HOME/.local/bin/ for example:
cp namada/target/release/namada* $HOME/.local/bin/
See the page on using namada binaries for more information.
