The EasyInstall script

This script will download the correct binary from the project site.

curl -sSfL https://download.cuberite.org | sh

Compiling

  • You can compile automatically for Linux, macOS and FreeBSD with the compile.sh script. The script is described below.
  • You can also compile manually. See COMPILING.md.

Compiling may provide better performance (1.5-3x as fast) and it supports more operating systems.

The compile.sh script

This script downloads the source code and compiles it. The script is smart enough to notify you of missing dependencies and instructing you on how to install them. The script doesn't work for Windows.

Using curl:

sh -c "$(curl -sSfL -o - https://compile.cuberite.org)"

Or using wget:

sh -c "$(wget -O - https://compile.cuberite.org)"

Hosted services

  • Hosted Cuberite is available via Gamocosm.
