Install from source

Installation instructions.

We recommend creating a build directory:

$ mkdir build && cd build

Run cmake providing the path to where you cloned the Ouroboros repository. Assuming you created the build directory inside the repository directory, do:

$ cmake ..

Build and install Ouroboros:

$ sudo make install

Advanced options

Ouroboros can be configured by providing parameters to the cmake command:

$ cmake -D<option>=<value> ..

Alternatively, after running cmake and before installation, run ccmake to configure Ouroboros:

$ ccmake .

A list of all options can be found here.

Remove Ouroboros

To uninstall Ouroboros, simply execute the following command from your build directory:

$ sudo make uninstall
