The solana-localnet program is provided to easily start a test Solana cluster locally on your machine. Docker must be installed. The JSON RPC endpoint of the local cluster is http://localhost:8899.

To start, first fetch the latest Docker image by running:

$ npx solana-localnet update

Then run the following command to start the cluster

$ npx solana-localnet up

While the cluster is running logs are available with:

$ npx solana-localnet logs -f

Stop the cluster with:

$ npx solana-localnet down

BPF program development

Please use cargo build-bpf from the latest Solana release instead of the information in this section

The Solana BPF SDK is located in the bpf-sdk/ subdirectory if you installed solana-web3.js from npmjs.com.

From a git clone, run npm run bpf-sdk:install to fetch the latest BPF SDK.

Additionally Rust must be installed to build Rust BPF programs such as examples/bpf-rust-noop/. See https://www.rust-lang.org/install.html for installation details.
