If you do not have these dependencies installed on your machine, we have instructions on how to install the necessary packages for MacOS, Ubuntu Linux and Windows. If you run into problems please flag so we can keep these pages updated as system requirements change.
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install g++ make git python node-typescript curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_16.x | sudo -E bash sudo apt-get install -y nodejs
Saito is open source software. The latest version of the Saito code is always available in our public Github repository.
Note: do not clone into
/var/www/as this will cause webpack to error during compilation.
git clone https://github.com/saitotech/saito-lite-rust cd saito-lite-rust npm install -g typescript npm install
After you have downloaded the software, you need to run our compile script. This will delete any previously-existing databases and create fresh versions of the configuration files that Saito needs to run properly. It also compiles a compressed version of Saito for use in browsers.
npm run nuke npm start
There are two compilation options:
npm run compile - creates the client JavasScript and CSS for deployment or testing and leaves the blockchain and other data structures in tact. Use this option during development.
./config/options file (
.config/options.conf is used as a template if it exists) and updates
.config/modules.config.js file (
.config/modules.default.js is used as a template if the
modules.config.js files does not exist.
nuke scripts can be run with a
npm run compile dev and
npm run nuke dev
When this flag is used:
The payload is 2 to 3 times larger but in browser debugging is possible.
CSS files are linked (
@include() CSS source files, rather than being a concatentation of the source CSS).
Many more files are downloaded by the client, but in browser debugging is possible.
Once you have run
npm start above it will take a few moments for the Saito software to initialize and start. You will eventually see an animated Saito logo scroll across your terminal. Once that is done simply open a browser and visit:
This will load the Saito Arcade - one of our default applications. If everything goes as plans, you now have a working version of Saito for use in local testing or development. Why not get take your next steps by checking out tutorial one which demonstrates how to build a simple application that attaches data to transactions and broadcasts them into the network.
This repository includes older branches and versions which are not being maintained. If you are interested in developing on the public site, please make sure you are using the latest two live repositories:
