If you'd like to install Namada from source you will have to install some dependencies first:

  1. Rust (opens in a new tab)
  2. Git (opens in a new tab)
  3. Clang (opens in a new tab)
  4. OpenSSL (opens in a new tab)
  5. LLVM (opens in a new tab)


At the end of the installation, make sure that Cargo's bin directory $HOME/.cargo/bin is available on your PATH environment variable. You can either restart your shell or run source $HOME/.cargo/env to continue.

If you already have Rust installed, make sure you're using the latest version by running:

rustup update

Remaining dependencies

Then, install the remaining dependencies.

Ubuntu: running the following command should install everything needed:

sudo apt-get install -y make git-core libssl-dev pkg-config libclang-12-dev build-essential protobuf-compiler

Mac: installing the Xcode command line tools should provide you with almost everything you need:

xcode-select --install

protoc is also required. On Mac, you can install it with Homebrew:

brew install protobuf

When running

protoc --version

It should output at least:

libprotoc 3.12.0

Please refer to protoc-installation doc (opens in a new tab) for other installation options.
