This page documents the step to install Replicante Core for production use. It does NOT detail the installation process of the needed dependences.

If you are looking for a development/test/demo environment the quick start guide is where you can find all that.

1. Installing dependencies

The first step is to install all the required dependencies. As the process depends on the chosen solution this guide does not cover how to do so.

For production installation it is strongly recommended that all dependences are installed and configured in highly available mode.

When using the recommended set of dependencies these guides may be of help:

2. Install

From pre-built binaries

Pre-built binaries are helpful for users to get up and running quickly. Unfortunately they require a good deal of effort from the community to be available for all popular distributions that people my want to use. The Replicante Community cannot afford to provide pre-built binaries for all popular Linux distributions at this stage but we do want to provide something to make things easier on people.

Pre-built binaries are available but they may not work for your system, in which case we suggest you use an alternative install method.

# Grab the binaries for the version of your choice from GitHub:

# Verify the integrity of the binaries:
sha256sum --check checksum.txt

# Verify the binaries work:
mv replicante-linux-64bits replicante
mv replictl-linux-64bits replictl
chmod +x replicante replictl
./replicante --version
./replictl --version

With Docker

A docker image with the pre-compiled core is also available:

To check the image works as expected:

docker pull replicanteio/replicante:v0
docker run --rm -it replicanteio/replicante:v0 replicante --version
docker run --rm -it replicanteio/replicante:v0 replictl --version

From code

The following instructions where executed on a clean Fedora 31 install but should work for any Linux system given the correct package manager and package names:

# Install needed tools and dependencies.
dnf install -y clang cmake gcc gcc-c++ git make openssl-devel

# Install rust and cargo with rustup.
curl -sSf | sh
source $HOME/.cargo/env

# Get the code and compile replicante.
git clone --recursive
cd replicante
cargo build --release

# Ensure the built binaries works.
target/release/replicante --version
target/release/repliadm --version
target/release/replictl --version

# Binaries are ready for use!
cp target/release/replicante \
    target/release/repliadm \
    target/release/replictl \
    replicante.example.yaml \

3. Dependencies initialisation

Whatever your choice, the dependencies need some initialisation before Replicante Core can start.

The requirements depend on the service and the selected implementation:

4. Next steps

Once the binaries are ready and the store is initialised it is time to configure replicante.
