Quick install with Docker

This is the most easiest way to install Alexon. Make sure you have installed Docker.

# assume you're in Debian/Ubuntu
sudo apt install docker-ce
Or you may follow Docker official manual.

Then you may save code below to a file named alexon:


docker run -it --rm \
       -v $PWD:/alexon \
       -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock \ \

Then make it executable:

sudo mv alexon /usr/local/bin/
sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/alexon

Install from source code

First, you may download the source code:

git clone
Or download the release code.


Assuming that you are using Debian/Ubuntu:

sudo apt install docker-ce guile-3.0 guile-3.0-dev make autoconf automake libtool pkgconf bash util-linux curl
Then install necessary dependencies:

# In the current alexon source directory
sudo ./scripts/ --no-docker # since you've already installed docker


sudo make install
