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.
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
cargo install openfare
This will automatically download
openfare from crates.io, build it, and install it in Cargo's global binary directory (~/.cargo/bin/ by default).
The version published to crates.io 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 https://github.com/openfare/openfare.git openfare
Again, make sure to add the Cargo bin directory to your PATH.
