Environment setup


If you don't want to build Namada from source you can install Namada from binaries

Export the following variables:

export NAMADA_TAG=v0.15.3
export TM_HASH=v0.1.4-abciplus

Installing Namada

  1. Install all pre-requisites

  2. Clone namada repository and checkout the correct versions

git clone https://github.com/anoma/namada && cd namada && git checkout $NAMADA_TAG
  1. Build binaries
make build-release
  • There may be some additional requirements you may have to install (linux):
sudo apt-get update -y
sudo apt-get install build-essential make pkg-config libssl-dev libclang-dev -y
curl --proto '=https' --tlsv1.2 -sSf https://sh.rustup.rs | sh

Installing Tendermint

  1. Install the heliaxdev/tendermint fork
git clone https://github.com/heliaxdev/tendermint && cd tendermint && git checkout $TM_HASH
make build

The above requires that golang is correctly installed with the correct $PATH setup


In linux, this can be resolved by sudo snap install go --channel=1.18/stable --classic

2. Copy both the namada and tendermint binaries to somewhere on $PATH (or use the relative paths). This step may or may not be necessary.
  • namada binaries can be found in /target/release
  • tendermint is in build/tendermint

Check ports

  1. Open ports on your machine:
    • 26656
    • 26657
  2. To check if ports are open you can setup a simple server and curl the port from another host
  • Inside the namada folder, run
{ printf 'HTTP/1.0 200 OK\r\nContent-Length: %d\r\n\r\n' "$(wc -c < namada)"; cat namada; } | nc -l $PORT`
  • From another host run one of the two commands:
    • nmap $IP -p$PORT
    • curl $IP:$PORT >/dev/null

Verifying your installation

  • Make sure you are using the correct tendermint version
    • tendermint version should output 0.1.4-abciplus
  • Make sure you are using the correct Namada version
    • namada --version should output Namada v0.15.3
