roche can be used either as a command line tool or a Rust crate. We will look at prebuilt releases first and then the different options for building from source.
Precompiled binaries will be provided on a best-effort basis. Visit the releases page to download the appropriate version for your platform.
roche can also be installed from source
If you are new to rust we strongly recommend taking the rustup option at the top of that link.
Installing roche is relatively easy if you already have Rust and Cargo installed. You just have to type this snippet in your terminal:
cargo install roche
This will fetch the source code for the latest release from
Crates.io and compile it. If you didn't choose the rustup option
you may have to add Cargo's
bin directory to your
roche help in your terminal to verify if it works. Congratulations, you
have installed roche!
The git version contains all the latest bug-fixes and features, that will be released in the next version on Crates.io, if you can't wait until the next release. You can build the git version yourself. Open your terminal and navigate to the directory of you choice. We need to clone the git repository and then build it with Cargo.
git clone --depth=1 https://github.com/roche-rs/roche.git cd roche cargo build --release
roche will be in the
./target/release folder, this should be
added to the path.
