This section describes everything required to build and run zink.


Before we can actually build Zink, we’ll need to make sure these things are installed first.

The Rust toolchain

Install the Rust toolchain here. This includes rustup, cargo, rustc, etc…

Add target wasm32-unknown-unknown

rustup target add wasm32-unknown-unknown

This is required for compiling our rust projects to wasm.

Build the zinkc CLI

cd cli
cargo b -p zinkup --release --features zinkc

The built executable will be located at target/release/zinkc.

Build examples

cd examples
cargo b --release

The built wasm binaries will be localted at examples/target/wasm32-unknown-unknown/realease/*.wasm, then, you can you zinkc to compile them to EVM bytecode!
