Build from Source

To build SPIRE from source on Linux, you’ll need:

  • git - To clone the source from GitHub. Alternatively, you could use curl or wget.
  • make - To run the Makefile
  • gcc - To build the binaries

The build script installs the required toolchain as needed, except for gcc. For example, the build script installs a private version of go that has been verified to successfully build SPIRE.

To build SPIRE on macOS, see Building SPIRE on macOS/Darwin.

Fetching

First, fetch the SPIRE repository:

$ git clone https://github.com/spiffe/spire && cd spire
The SPIRE codebase uses Go modules, which means that the SPIRE repository does not need to be in your GOPATH.

Building

To build the binaries from source:

$ make build

The built binaries are placed in bin.
