How To Build Clog

This is for developers. Specifically those who know how to use tools, satisfy dependencies, and want to set up a development environment. It is not user-friendly.

You'll need these tools:

  • git
  • cmake
  • make
  • C++ compiler, currently gcc 4.7+ or clang 3.3+ for full C++11 support

Downloading the Repo

The next step is to obtain the code. This means getting the released tarball. You can download the tarball with curl, as an example of just one of many ways to download the tarball.

$ curl -L -O

Building the Tarball

Expand the tarball, build Clog, and install it. This copies files into the right place, and installs the man page.

$ tar xzf clog-1.3.0.alpha.tar.gz
$ cd clog-1.3.0.alpha
$ cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=release .
$ make
$ sudo make install
