Development Setup

This document provides a best practice for general development setup and code distribution. Please practice on your computer before trying for code contribution.


  • Install Git on your system - Git-scm.

  • Register Github Account if you dont have one already. You can register your Github acocunt here.

  • Obtain Docker on your system. You can get docker from here.

  • (Optional) Install IDE on your operating system. e.g. Visual Studio Code or IntelliJ

  • Step 1 - Configure Git tool if you are behind the firewall. Show Me How

  • Step 2 - Fork the following Mnemonic project to your own Github account. Project Link

  • Step 3 - Clone the forked Mnemonic project from your own Github account by running the command below. Show Me How

bash $ git clone[your account id]/mnemonic.git

  • Step 4 - Configure a remote upstream from Github for upstream sync by running the command below. Show Me How

bash $ git remote add upstream

  • Step 5 - Setting your commit email address and name for local Mnemonic repo by running the command below. Show Me How

bash $ cd mnemonic $ git config “[your apache id]@” $ git config “[your name]”

  • Step 6 - Prepare Mnemonic Docker image on your own system by running one of following command below.

bash $ # --------- For CentOS --------- $ docker build -t mnedev $ # --------- For Ubuntu --------- $ docker build -t mnedev

  • Step 7 - Mount your host repository to Docker container, this following command would hide the original Mnemonic project folder in container.

bash $ docker run -it -v <mnemonic_project_folder>:/ws/mnemonic mnedev

Congratulation! You have successfully completed the development setup. You are now ready to edit the project code on your host while compiling and test in isolated Docker envinroment. Please make sure you have enough space for docker based compiling and testing (>30G for test running).
