Setup and installation

A short guide on how to set up and install our wallet CLI.


  • You’re running a Unix (Linux or macOS) system (the code should work on Windows, but it isn’t as well-tested)
  • You have a working internet connection
  • You have Git installed
  • You have the latest Rust toolkit, including the cargo command

Install melwalletd and melwallet-cli

$ cargo install --locked melwalletd melwallet-cli
We install both packages because melwallet-cli is merely a convenient frontend for melwalletd, a local daemon that exposes a JSON-RPC interface for managing wallets. You can find more details here.
