Using NPM

npm i -g everdev

If you see an EACCESS error when you try to install a package globally on Mac or Linux, please see this instruction

Using pre-compiled binaries

You can download precompiled binaries for your platform from the latest release. After download you need to create directory if it does not exists.

For linux/macos:

mkdir -p ~/.everdev/bin

Then unpack everdev from archive into this folder.

For windows:

md $env:HOMEDRIVE$env:HOMEPATH\.everdev\bin

Then move downloaded binary as everdev.exe into this folder.

To make it possible to run everdev from any folder, you need to update the system PATH environment variable.

For linux/macos:

echo 'export PATH=~/.everdev/bin:$PATH' >> ~/.profile && source ~/.profile

For windows run PowerShell and execute this line:

[System.Environment]::SetEnvironmentVariable("PATH", "$env:HOMEDRIVE$env:HOMEPATH\.everdev\bin;$([System.Environment]::GetEnvironmentVariable("PATH", [System.EnvironmentVariableTarget]::User))", [System.EnvironmentVariableTarget]::User)

After trying to run everdev on macos you can see the error: "everdev" cannot be opened because the developer cannot be verified. Open your computer System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy. Here, you should see an option to click "Allow Anyway" next to the "everdev" application in question.

Using docker

Select a base image that provides GLIBC ver. 2.29 or higher if you want to use the Evedev Solidity compiler like ubuntu:20.04:

docker run -it --rm ubuntu:20.04
# apt update &&  apt upgrade -y && apt install -y curl
# curl -L https://github.com/tonlabs/everdev/releases/download/1.3.1/everdev-linux.tgz  --output everdev-linux.tgz
# tar xvf everdev-linux.tgz
# mv everdev /usr/local/bin/


npm r -g everdev
npm i -g everdev

Command Line Interface

Components are downloaded and installed automatically for the target platform upon the first request.

General command syntax

everdev <tool> <command> ...args

Some tools (network, signer, contract, js) and commands have short aliases. For example instead of using everdev network list you can use everdev n l and even shorter everdev nl.
