Building and installing

Kore has been tested to run on the following platforms:

  • Linux 3.2 or newer
  • OpenBSD 5.3 or newer
  • FreeBSD 10 or newer
  • macOS 10.10.x or newer

Basic compilation requires the following libraries:

  • OpenSSL 1.1.0, 1.1.1 / LibreSSL

Get the 4.0.0 release tarball and signature from and verify it using minisign:

minisign -Vm kore-4.0.0.tgz -P RWSxkEDc2y+whfKTmvhqs/YaFmEwblmvar7l6RXMjnu6o9tZW3LC0Hc9

If verification is successful, build it. Do not build distributions that cannot be verified by the minisign key seen above.

$ cd kore
$ make
$ sudo make install

Kore has several build flavors available:

  • CURL=1 (compiles in asynchronous curl support)
  • ACME=1 (compiles in ACME support)
  • TASKS=1 (compiles in task support)
  • PGSQL=1 (compiles in pgsql support)
  • DEBUG=1 (enables use of -d for debug)
  • NOHTTP=1 (compiles Kore without HTTP support)
  • NOOPT=1 (disable compiler optimizations)
  • JSONRPC=1 (compiles in JSONRPC support)
  • PYTHON=1 (compiles in Python support)

These build flavors can be passed on the command line when building. Note that enabling these flavors may require additional libraries to be present on your system:

Requirements for asynchronous libcurl support (optional):

  • libcurl

Requirements for background tasks (optional)

  • pthreads

Requirements for pgsql (optional)

  • libpq

Requirements for python (optional)

  • Python 3.6+

For BSD-like systems you will need to install GNU Make.


Kore is available on Homebrew under macOS and can be installed with:

`` $ brew install kore
