Install with Docker

The chainsafe/lodestar Docker Hub repository is mantained actively. It contains the lodestar CLI preinstalled.

Info

The Docker Hub image tagged as chainsafe/lodestar:next is run on CI every dev commit on our unstable branch. For stable releases, the image is tagged as chainsafe/lodestar:latest.

Ensure you have Docker installed by issuing the command:

docker -v

It should return a non error message such as Docker version xxxx, build xxxx.

Pull, run the image and Lodestar should now be ready to use

docker pull chainsafe/lodestar
docker run chainsafe/lodestar --help

Info

Docker is the recommended setup for Lodestar. Use our comprehensive setup guide with Docker for detailed instructions.
