The mixnet code is relatively simple to build and run on Mac OS X and Linux. We haven't tried it on Windows (yet).
sudo apt install pkg-config build-essential libssl-dev
To download and build:
git clone https://github.com/nymtech/nym.git git checkout tags/v0.3.2 cd nym cargo test # runs unit and integration tests cargo build --release # if you want binaries to try out
The above commands will check the code out from Github, and then compile three pieces of software into the
ls target/release/ build libnym_client.d nym-client nym-sfw-provider deps libnym_client.rlib nym-client.d nym-sfw-provider.d examples libsfw_provider_requests.d nym-mixnode incremental libsfw_provider_requests.rlib nym-mixnode.d
Quite a bit of stuff gets built, but you can ignore most of it. The mixnet parts are:
In the next sections we'll try each of these out.
