Install and run

Software prerequisites

Install the client

We currently recommend installing and running the client with the testing and concurrent features.

Run the following command to install the miden-client:

cargo install miden-client --features testing,concurrent

This installs the miden-client binary (at ~/.cargo/bin/miden-client) with the testing and concurrent features.

Testing feature

The testing feature speeds up account creation.

Install the testing feature on node and client

  • When using the the client CLI alongside a locally-running node, make sure to install/execute the node with the testing feature.
  • Some validations can fail if the flag does not match on both the client and the node.

Concurrent feature

The concurrent flag enables optimizations that result in faster transaction execution and proving times.

Run the client

  1. Make sure you have already installed the client.

  2. Run the client CLI using:

    miden-client
