Getting Executables

Users can choose any of the following methods to get FISCO BCOS executable. It is recommended to download the precompiled binaries from GitHub.

  • The official statically linked precompiled files can be used on Ubuntu 16.04 and CentOS 7.2 version or later.

  • docker image is provided officially, welcome to use. docker-hub address

  • You can compile from the source code, visit here source code compilation.

Downloading precompiled fisco-bcos

The statically linked precompiled executable provided has been tested on Ubuntu 16.04 and CentOS 7. Please download the latest released pre-compiled executable from the Release.

docker image

From v2.0.0 version, we provide the docker image for the tag version. Corresponding to the master branch, we provide image of latest tag. For more docker tags please refer tohere. script adds the -d option to provide docker mode building for developers to deploy. For details, please refer to here.


For using script easily, we start docker by using --network=host network mode. Users may need to customize and modify according to their own network scenarios when they actually use.

Source code compilation


The source code compilation is suitable for the experienced developers. You are required to download all library dependencies during compilation. Network connection would required and would take 5-20 minutes in total.

FISCO BCOS is using generic CMake to generate platform-specific build files, which means the steps are similar for most operating systems:

  1. Install build tools and dependent package (depends on platform).

  2. Clone code from FISCO BCOS.

  3. Run cmake to generate the build file and compile.

Installation dependencies

  • Ubuntu

Ubuntu 16.04 or later is recommended. The versions below 16.04 have not been tested. You will require to have the build tools build tools and libssl for compiling the source code.

sudo apt install -y g++ libssl-dev openssl cmake git build-essential autoconf texinfo flex patch bison libgmp-dev zlib1g-dev
  • CentOS

CentOS7 version or later is recommended.

$ sudo yum install -y epel-release centos-release-scl
$ sudo yum install -y openssl-devel openssl cmake3 gcc-c++ git flex patch bison gmp-static devtoolset-7
  • macOS

xcode10 version and above are recommended. macOS dependent package installation depends on Homebrew.

brew install openssl git flex bison gmp

Code clone

git clone

# If you have network issue for exec the command above, please try:
git clone

cd FISCO-BCOS && git checkout master-2.0


After compilation, binary files are located at FISCO-BCOS/build/bin/fisco-bcos.

$ git checkout master-2.0
$ mkdir -p build && cd build
$ source /opt/rh/devtoolset-7/enable  # CentOS Please execute
# please use cmake3 for CentOS
$ cmake ..
#To add -j4 to accelerate compilation by 4 compilation processes
# In macOS, if it raises "ld: warning: direct access" when execute make command, please ignore it
$ make


  • If dependency libs cannot be downloaded for a long time due to network problems, try , and put in FISCO-BCOS/deps/src/
