How to compile

Using Windows

Using Linux

Using MacOS

  • Dependencies:
    • A compiler with C++17 support (GCC >= 7.0 or clang >= 5.0)
    • git
      and CMake (>= 3.12.4)
    • Optional:
      ninja
      (much faster builds)
    • Check Homebrew for packages.
  • Run
    cmake -B build . && cmake --build build
    ; if you installed
    ninja
    above, add
    -GNinja
    before
    -B
    in the previous command.
  • Run the client with
    ./build/openminer
  • If you want a multiplayer game, run the server with
    ./build/openminer_server
