Build the source code
NoteCentOS 7 is the recommended Linux distribution for development and production platform for YugabyteDB.
Install necessary packages
First, install Homebrew, if you do not already have it. Homebrew will be used to install the other required packages.
/usr/bin/ruby -e "$( curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"
Install the following packages using Homebrew:
brew install autoconf automake bash ccache cmake coreutils gnu-tar libtool \ maven ninja pkg-config pstree wget python
NoteYugabyteDB build scripts rely on Bash 4. Make sure that
/usr/local/bin/bashbefore proceeding. You may need to put
/usr/local/binas the first directory on
~/.bashrcto achieve that.
Build the code
Assuming this repository is checked out in
~/code/yugabyte-db, run the following:
cd ~/code/yugabyte-db ./yb_build.sh release
The command above builds the release configuration, puts the C++ binaries in
build/release-clang-dynamic-ninja, and creates the
build/latest symlink to that directory.
TipYou can find the binaries you just built in
Build Java code
YugabyteDB core is written in C++, but the repository contains Java code needed to run sample applications. To build the Java part, you need:
- JDK 8
- Apache Maven.
Also make sure Maven's
bin directory is added to your
PATH (for example, by adding to your
~/.bashrc). See the example below (if you've installed Maven into
For building YugabyteDB Java code, you'll need to install Java and Apache Maven.
Build release package
You can build a release package by executing:
$ ./yb_release ...... 2020-10-27 13:55:40,856 [yb_release.py:283 INFO] Generated a package at '/Users/me/code/yugabyte-db/build/yugabyte-184.108.40.206-6ab8013159fdca00ced7e6f5d2f98cacac6a536a-release-darwin-x86_64.tar.gz'```
