1.3 Obtaining the latest version from Git

The latest development version can be obtained from our Git repository. To get the code you need to have Git installed. Usually your Operating System package manager should provide a suitable distribution of git (otherwise check out Guix or Nix). If you are using an Operating System based on Debian’s apt:

$ sudo apt-get install git

This is required for obtaining the repository, which is achieved with the following command:

$ git clone https://git.gnunet.org/gnunet

After cloning the repository, you have to execute the bootstrap script in the new directory:

$ cd gnunet
$ ./bootstrap

The remainder of this tutorial will assume that you have the Git branch “master” checked out.
