How To Build Twister Distributed Microblog on Ubuntu 13.10 (Saucy)

today I found out about twisterd and I wanted to give it a try (and reserve my username ;) so I tried and it took a while to get all the dependencies right, to avoid you the pain here is the guide.

take into account the comments in the script.

just a console dump, it should work just by pasting the commands in order:

mkdir twister
cd twister
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libssl-dev libdb-dev libdb++-dev libminiupnpc-dev libboost-all-dev build-essential git autoconf libtool
git clone
git clone
mkdir ~/.twister
mv twister-html ~/.twister/html
cd twister-core/libtorrent

# NOTE: the following command will fail with an error about boost, ignore
# it and run the following commands

./configure --enable-logging --enable-debug --enable-dht --with-boost-libdir=/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/
cd ../src
make -f makefile.unix
./twisterd -daemon -rpcuser=user -rpcpassword=pwd -rpcallowip=
