Quick Installation

Pyrsia can easily be setup on a local Ubuntu (or Debian based) machine by using our apt installer package.

Supported Platforms

Limited platform support

Currently our team is working very hard on core features and installers for other operating systems.

  • Ubuntu Focal (x86_64)

Until we provide installers for other operating systems, you can start using Pyrsia by running our pre-built Docker image or build Pyrsia from source.

Using the Web Script

curl -sS | sh

From the Command Line

# Update system and install base tooling
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -y wget gnupg

# Add the Pyrsia keys to verify packages
wget -q -O - | gpg --dearmor > pyrsia.gpg
sudo install -o root -g root -m 644 pyrsia.gpg /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/
rm pyrsia.gpg
echo "deb focal main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list > /dev/null
sudo apt-get update

# Install
sudo apt-get install -y pyrsia

Verify everything is running smoothly

$ pyrsia --version
pyrsia 0.1.0
$ pyrsia ping
Connection Successful !! {}

If you see the following output, then your installation has failed.

$ pyrsia ping
Error: error sending request for url (http://localhost:7888/v2): error trying to connect: tcp connect error: Connection refused (os error 111)

Run Pyrsia in Docker

As a temporary alternative to the installation scripts for the supported platforms, you can also choose to run our pre-built Docker image available in Docker Hub

Make sure you have Docker installed on your system and run:

docker run -p 7888:7888 pyrsiaoss/pyrsia-node

Or use this docker-compose.yml file:

image: pyrsiaoss/pyrsia-node
- "7888:7888"
- "pyrsia:/pyrsia"


And start running Pyrsia in the background:

docker-compose up -d

Tail the logs to check if Pyrsia started correctly:

docker-compose logs -f

Or use the pyrsia CLI like this:

docker exec pyrsia-1 pyrsia ping
Connection Successful !!

(replace pyrsia-1 with the name of your Pyrsia container)
