How to Compile CGA wallet from source (OSX)

2 posts in this topic

Here is a tutorial to compile your OSX CGA wallet from the source. Let me know if I made any typos.

First get Xcode: http://guide.macports.org/#installing.xcode

Then get Macports from here: https://distfiles.macports.org/MacPorts/

Then enter the following command in Terminal:

sudo port install boost db48@+no_java qt4-mac openssl git-core

This will install the dependencies you need for the compile.



Then enter the following to clone the source from github:

git clone https://github.com/s4w3d0ff/cryptographicanomaly.git

Now change directories to what was just cloned:

cd cryptographicanomaly

Now compile your Qt wallet with the following:

qmake *.pro && make

Your Cryptographicanomaly-Qt.app will be in the cryptographicanomaly folder. I suggest moving it into your Applications folder (keeping your system organized ;) )


If you want the cryptographicanomalyd program (headless daemon) enter this next command (assuming that you are still in the cryptographicanomaly directory:

cd src && make -f makefile.osx

The cryptographicanomalyd program will be in your cryptographicanomaly/src folder.

Easy right?

Saw some bad info that I fixed. The Macports link was 10.9 only and "port install git" is broken, so I updated the Macports link and added a link for git.


Apparently Macports fixed the broken repository for git so

sudo port install git-core

will work. I added it to the install command in the OP.
