The quickest way to get a hydra-node installed and running is to use our Docker images:

docker pull
docker run --rm --help

Prebuilt binaries

We provide statically linked (as much as possible) binaries of hydra-node and hydra-tui for x86_64 Linux and ARM64 MacOS platforms as attachment of our github releases.

Build from source

While using docker is the recommended way to use Hydra, you can also build the hydra-node from source. We do recommend using nix for this and the instructions can be found in our Contributing Guidelines.
