Skynet is a lightweight online game framework which can be used in many other fields.


For Linux, install autoconf first for jemalloc:

git clone
cd skynet
make 'PLATFORM'  # PLATFORM can be linux, macosx, freebsd now


export PLAT=linux

For FreeBSD , use gmake instead of make.


Run these in different consoles:

./skynet examples/config	# Launch first skynet node  (Gate server) and a skynet-master (see config for standalone option)
./3rd/lua/lua examples/client.lua 	# Launch a client, and try to input hello.

About Lua version

Skynet now uses a modified version of lua 5.4.4 ( ) for multiple lua states.

Official Lua versions can also be used as long as the Makefile is edited.
