Setting up your Ethereum Eth Development Environment on a Mac OS X
Firstly, to install Ethereum Eth download the latest stable binary of cpp-ethereum, and install on your chosen operating system.
I’m running on Mac so I’ll install via Homebrew
brew update brew upgrade brew tap ethereum/ethereum brew install cpp-ethereum
In the installation of cpp-ethereum, I ran into a compilation error
Built target llvm
make: *** Error 2
If reporting this issue please do so at (not Homebrew/brew or Homebrew/core):
These open issues may also help:
Error during install of cpp-ethereum ( Built target llvm make: *** Error 2) http://github.com/ethereum/homebrew-ethereum/issues/116
In order to get cpp-ethereum to run correctly on my Mac, I had to build from the head. The last line of the install snags the latest branch of cpp-ethereum
brew update brew upgrade brew tap ethereum/ethereum brew reinstall llvm At this point, close the terminal, and relaunch it. brew install leveldb libmicrohttpd cryptopp brew install cpp-ethereum --devel --successful --verbose
Now I’m able to launch with
eth -j --rpccorsdomain '*'
In some of our other tutorials, you will learn how to run eth with rpc and ipc. You’ll also learn how to create a custom Genesis Block to enable you to mine for ether quickly on your own testnet.
