Install go

TIP

Go 1.15+ is required for building and installing the IRIShub software.

Install go by following the official docs.

Remember to set your $GOPATH, $GOBIN, and $PATH environment variables, for example:

mkdir -p $HOME/go/bin
echo "export GOPATH=$HOME/go" >> ~/.bashrc
source ~/.bashrc
echo "export GOBIN=$GOPATH/bin" >> ~/.bashrc
source ~/.bashrc
echo "export PATH=$PATH:$GOBIN" >> ~/.bashrc
source ~/.bashrc

Verify that go has been installed successfully

go version

Install iris

After setting up go correctly, you should be able to compile and run iris.

Make sure that your server can access to google.com because our project depends on some libraries provided by google. (If you are not able to access google.com, you can also try to add a proxy: export GOPROXY=https://goproxy.io)

git clone https://github.com/irisnet/irishub
cd irishub
git checkout <version>
make install

If your environment variables have set up correctly, you should not get any errors by running the above commands. Now check your iris version.
