Looking for the version of this series that uses Docker?
This tutorial is going to use pre-built binaries. For you to get started as quickly as possible this is the best option. Building from source is a more advanced option but will set you back an hour or more and you may encounter build errors.
You can find how to build EOSIO from source here.
brew tap eosio/eosio brew install eosio
If you don't have Brew installed, follow the installation instructions on the official Brew website.
wget https://github.com/EOSIO/eos/releases/download/v1.8.6/eosio_1.8.6-1-ubuntu-18.04_amd64.deb sudo apt install ./eosio_1.8.6-1-ubuntu-18.04_amd64.deb
wget https://github.com/EOSIO/eos/releases/download/v1.8.6/eosio_1.8.6-1-ubuntu-16.04_amd64.deb sudo apt install ./eosio_1.8.6-1-ubuntu-18.04_amd64.deb
wget https://github.com/EOSIO/eos/releases/download/v1.8.6/eosio-1.8.6-1.el7.x86_64.rpm sudo yum install ./eosio-1.8.6-1.el7.x86_64.rpm
If you have previous versions of eosio installed on your system, please uninstall before proceeding. Detail instruction see here
