|Instructions for 10.9 are in the works.|
|Install and configure brew|
|$ ruby -e "$(curl -fsSkL raw.github.com/mxcl/homebrew/go)"|
|$ touch ~/.bashrc|
|$ echo "export CFLAGS=\"-arch x86_64\"" >> ~/.bashrc|
|$ echo "export ARCHFLAGS=\"-arch x86_64\"" >> ~/.bashrc|
|$ source ~/.bashrc|
|$ brew update|
|$ brew doctor|
|Do what the doctor says! This will more than likely include installing XCode from the App Store and then installing the "Command line tools" from "Xcode > Preferences > Downloads"|
|Now you have two choices. You can install the code via my brew tap, or you can use git to clone BitcoinArmory and build it manually yourself.|
|I recommend using method 1 as it is just as secure and provides a nice "ArmoryQt.command" to make launching the program easy.|
|METHOD 1: BREW TAP|
|Run the following commands WITH THE FOLLOWING CASE. Tapping is case sensitive!|
|$ brew tap WyseNynja/bitcoin|
|$ brew fetch --deps wysenynja/bitcoin/armory-qt|
|Make sure armory is from etotheipi's github and everything has the proper hashes.|
|Now install some dependencies that don't play nice if they are installed at the same time as armory.|
|$ brew install python gpg|
|$ pip install twisted psutil|
|Now import the signing key. You do not need to mark the key as trusted for the tag to be verified|
|$ gpg --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com 98832223|
|Now you are ready to actually install armory-qt!|
|$ brew install wysenynja/bitcoin/armory-qt|
|Running armory is incredibly easy!|
|METHOD 2: MANUAL|
|$ brew install python cryptopp swig sip qt pyqt git|
|Make sure this ends in success!|
|I prefer to use brew's python since it is newer (2.7.3 vs ML's 2.7.2). Plus it is installed as my user so I can muck with it without sudo and I don't have to worry about breaking anything on my system.|
|Then run some more commands|
|$ pip install twisted|
|$ mkdir ~/src|
|$ cd ~/src|
|$ git clone git://github.com/etotheipi/BitcoinArmory.git|
|$ cd BitcoinArmory|
|Running Armory is a bit awkward, but it isn't too bad. You have to set PYTHONPATH so the system python can find pyqt and twisted. I'm not sure why, but I haven't been able to get Armory built against brew's python. Since "make" built against the system python, you need to make sure that you use the system python. Brew recommends you put it's python in the front of PATH (which you did if you followed my instructions above), so using the full path to the system python makes sure it is used.|
|$ PYTHONPATH=`brew --prefix`/lib/python2.7/site-packages /usr/bin/python ~/src/BitcoinArmory/ArmoryQt.py|
|Currently, Armory requires the satoshi client (bitcoin-qt or bitcoind) in order to connect to the Bitcoin network. You can either run bitcoin-qt or bitcoind. To get bitcoind on OSX, you can use my brew tap to install the latest stable version.|
|$ brew install wysenynja/bitcoin/bitcoind|
|You can also install the latest master, or luke-jr's next-test branch|
|$ brew install wysenynja/bitcoin/bitcoind --HEAD|
|$ brew install wysenynja/bitcoin/bitcoind-next-test --HEAD|
What does this mean:
I didn't realize you can't pull request gists, but:
I found that the install process failed because I didn't have the Armory signing key, and brew refuses to install the package without it. I added a step to retrieve it.
The instructions as I wrote them will still fail if you don't have gpg installed when you start the process.
gwillen, the tap will install gpg for you and git verify-tag will retrieve the key automatically.
The only time I've seen this fail is if you have manually installed gpg and misconfigured the default keyserver.
EDIT: Hmm. It only has that behavior on one of my systems and others fail. I'll change my directions.
You probably want to change ==> http://www.riverbankcomputing.co.uk/static/Downloads/PyQt4/redirect.txt because the following error occurs.
curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 404
I just want to report that I am running 0.89.99.14-beta on maverick and even tough I don´t trust it (some parts are not working) I can say that it does start (it just takes about 15 minutes to 'build' the db).
@robertburkhalter The short answer is yes but if you ask, since Armory is not the easiest thing to build, I would recommend to discover/learn brew and the command line a little before trying to build Armory. You can find plenty of smaller projects you can clone and build on your mac to discover how it works. Just my recommendation :)
Found new instructions at: https://github.com/etotheipi/BitcoinArmory/tree/0.91-dev/osxbuild
First of all, thanks for making a tutorial on this. I get following error when I try to install:
Do you have any idea as to why that is? I would have liked to supply you with Makefile.rej, but there is no such file in the cppForSwig directory.
Hi. In case anybody stumbles upon this file moving forward, up-to-date instructions can be found here. That said, this guide was quite useful back in the day, especially when Alan basically relied on community support to get the OS X version going. :) Thanks to the original author!
