Install with Docker

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


The Docker Hub image tagged as chainsafe/lodestar:next is run on CI every 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


Docker is the recommended setup for Lodestar. Use our Lodestar Quickstart scripts with Docker for detailed instructions.
