Installing Enarx

You can install Enarx from GitHub,, or Nix.

Install from GitHub

$ git clone
$ cd enarx/
$ cargo build

$ cargo install --bin enarx --path ./

Install from


Rust version 1.57 is required when installing Enarx 0.1.3 from

$ rustup toolchain install 1.57 -t x86_64-unknown-linux-musl,x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu
$ RUSTC_BOOTSTRAP=1 cargo +1.57 install --bin enarx -- enarx

Install from Nix

Users with nix package manager installed (see should be able to just do in the checked out repository:

$ git clone
$ cd enarx/
$ nix-shell

(on legacy, stable nix installs)


$ nix develop

nix-shell opens file descriptors 3 and 4 and the enarx cargo test fails therefore. nix develop does not seem to have this problem.
