Holochain Rust Conductor

Project PM Chat

This crate implements a reference Conductor for serving Holochain DNAs.

Install

Our recommended pattern for the installation of the conductor is to download the binary for your platform from our releases page. Otherwise, you can proceed with the more complex instructions for building from source, below.

Building From Source

These dependencies need to be installed in order to compile, and use holochain:

  • Rust
    • needs to be the nightly-2019-07-14 build, so use the following commands, once you have first installed Rust
    • rustup toolchain install nightly-2019-07-14
    • rustup default nightly-2019-07-14
    • Also, if you are going to be developing Zomes in Rust, install the WASM build target for Rust, by running:
    • rustup target add wasm32-unknown-unknown --toolchain nightly-2019-07-14

To install the cutting edge version of the Holochain conductor, run the following command in a terminal

$ cargo install holochain --force --git https://github.com/holochain/holochain-rust.git --branch develop

To install the latest released version of the Holochain conductor, run the following command in a terminal

$ cargo install holochain --force --git https://github.com/holochain/holochain-rust.git --tag v0.0.25-alpha1

The Conductor should then be available from your command line using the holochain command.

Run holochain --version to confirm that it built.
