This section covers building Veloren from rust source with
cargo and running it.
Note: all commands need to be run from the repository.
On Windows you should be all good.
On Linux you need to have GTK3 installed.
On Debian systems additional libraries may need to be downloaded, below is a non-exhaustive list:
And a one liner to download and install them all:
sudo apt install libglib2.0-dev libasound2-dev libcairo2-dev libpango1.0-dev libatk1.0-dev libgtk-3-dev libxcb-shape0-dev libxcb-xfixes0-dev
On Fedora you can follow this awesome guide.
Note: Feel free to open an issue incase these dependencies are incorrect.
Run this in a terminal to compile and run Veloren:
To compile without running, use
cargo build instead.
Note: The initial compilation will take from 5min up to 30min therefore grab a tea and some snacks and come back later.
cargo run --bin veloren-server-cli
tracing to collect logs. They can be filtered by setting the
RUST_LOG environment variable to the respective level (
For all available filtering options visit the docs.
Tip: this works both for the server and client
By default debug builds are created which compile faster but run a bit slower than optimized release builds. Unlike many other projects, we've set them up so they're fast enough to be playable. If you want to get optimized builds, add the
--release flag when calling
cargo. Keep in mind that compiling release might be very slow!
If you want get familiar with cargo we recommend the Cargo Book.
