Semaphore has been tested with Node 11.14.0. It will run with Node 12 LTE but
we highly recommend using Node 11.14.0 if you wish to develop on its source
code, as one of its dependencies,
script, cannot compile when if you use Node
nvm to manage your Node version.
Clone this repository, install dependencies, and build the source code:
git clone email@example.com:kobigurk/semaphore.git && \ cd semaphore && \ npm i && \ npm run bootstrap && \ npm run build
Note: we use
lerna to manage the
subpackages. Do not run
npm install within any of these directories. Instead,
npm run bootstrap in the main directory.
Next, either download the compiled zk-SNARK circuit, proving key, and verification key (note that these keys are for testing purposes, and not for production, as there is no certainty that the toxic waste was securely discarded).
To download the circuit, proving key, and verification key, run:
# Start from the base directory ./circuits/scripts/download_snarks.sh
To generate the above files locally instead, run:
# Start from the base directory ./circuits/scripts/build_snarks.sh
This process should take about 45 minutes.
Build the Solidity contracts (you need
