# Installing the AtomicDEX API
# Minimum Requirements for Installation
MacOS, Windows (see note below), and Linux (see note below)
64-bit (see note below for 32-bit)
Minimum 2GB of free RAM
Normal user account with admin/root privileges
If you would prefer to avoid building the AtomicDEX API from source, you can download our pre-built binary from our Github releases page. (opens new window)
# Note about Linux
For Linux users, much of the following documentation assumes that you are building and running the AtomicDEX API on a Debian 9/10 or Ubuntu 18.04 host. If you have questions about other releases or distributions, please reach out to us on the #dev-marketmaker channel on Discord. (opens new window)
# Note about Installing on Windows
Developing software on Windows typically requires an installation of Git Bash.
Git Bash is a terminal shell based on Unix. It is similar to the Windows Shell or Windows Command Prompt, but uses Unix-based syntax.
All instructions in the AtomicDEX API documentation are given with Unix-based syntax, and therefore we recommend installing Git Bash before proceeding.
You may download and install Git Bash for Windows here:
The download should begin automatically.
Double-click the downloaded
.exe file and follow the Installation Wizard.
Once Git Bash is open and running on your machine, you may continue.
# Note About 32-bit Operating Systems
We are currently testing 32-bit operating system functionality. As 32-bit machines can often be comparatively older hardware, we cannot guarantee that AtomicDEX API will run successfully by default.
We invite users of 32-bit operating systems to test the software and report any errors to our team on the #dev-marketmaker channel on Discord (opens new window).
# Installing Dependencies
Install Rust (opens new window):
curl https://sh.rustup.rs -sSf | sh
2) to customize the installation, select
default host triple and
default toolchain, and choose the
# cmake Version 3.12 or Higher
Download the cmake software here: download link (opens new window)
Unpack and follow the instructions here: instructions link (opens new window)
# Build Tools for Your OS
sudo apt-get install build-essential
# Install Additional Dependencies
Install the following additional dependencies using the terminal.
sudo apt-get install -y git llvm-3.9-dev libclang-3.9-dev clang-3.9 libssl-dev pkg-config
If you are using Ubuntu-20.04, run:
sudo apt-get install -y git llvm-dev libclang-dev clang libssl-dev pkg-config
# Install Additional Rust Components
Install additional Rust components:
rustup install nightly-2020-10-25
rustup default nightly-2020-10-25
(Optional) Skip this step if it fails.
rustup component add rustfmt-preview
# Install jq
jq is an optional, but useful addition to our needed software.
jq can provide a more readable format of JSON output in the terminal, which helps us more quickly digest the data respone output by the AtomicDEX API.
sudo apt-get install jq
Download the appropriate file from this link. (opens new window)
In your terminal, make the file executable by changing into the directory where the file downloaded and executing:
chmod +x jq
Execute the file.
Download and execute the appropriate file from this link. (opens new window)
# Build AtomicDEX API
Clone the AtomicDEX API repository:
cd ~ git clone https://github.com/KomodoPlatform/atomicDEX-API --branch mm2.1 --single-branch && cd atomicDEX-API
Compile the source code.
cargo build --features native -vv
If the above command results in an error, use the following command instead.
LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/opt/openssl/lib cargo build --features native -vv
Alternatively, create a permanent link called
ln -s /usr/local/opt/openssl/lib/libcrypto.a /usr/local/lib
If everything installed successfully, a response that is similar to the following should appear.
“Finished dev [optimized + debuginfo] target(s) in 3m 33s”
The AtomicDEX API executable is now built and available here:
