Pre-compiled binaries

Executable binaries are available for download on the GitHub Releases page. Download the binary for your platform (Windows, macOS, or Linux) and extract the archive. The archive contains the openfare command line tool.

To make it easier to run, put the path to the binary into your PATH.

Build from source using Rust

To build the openfare executable from source, you will first need to install Rust and Cargo. Follow the instructions on the Rust installation page. OpenFare currently requires at least Rust version 1.58.0

Once you have installed Rust, the following command can be used to build and install openfare:

cargo install openfare

This will automatically download openfare from, build it, and install it in Cargo's global binary directory (~/.cargo/bin/ by default).

Installing the latest master version

The version published to will ever so slightly be behind the version hosted on GitHub. If you need the latest version you can build the git version of openfare yourself. Cargo makes this super easy!

cargo install --git openfare

Again, make sure to add the Cargo bin directory to your PATH.
