SETTING UP

Kitura can run on both macOS and Linux.

To start, you’ll need to install a few prerequisites.

macOS

Download and install Xcode 9.

Install the Command Line Tools for Xcode:

xcode-select --install

Ubuntu Linux

Kitura is tested on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.

Install the following Linux system packages:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install clang libicu-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev libssl-dev libpython2.7

Kitura requires OpenSSL v1.0.x, whereas newer versions of Linux may install OpenSSL v1.1.x. If this occurs, install OpenSSL v1.0.x using:

sudo apt-get install libssl1.0-dev

Download a Swift 4 toolchain from swift.org.

After extracting the .tar.gz file, update your PATH environment variable so that it includes the extracted tools:

export PATH={path to uncompressed tar contents}/usr/bin:$PATH
