Run our brew recipe to get the Nakama code and build the binary:
brew install https://raw.githubusercontent.com/heroiclabs/nakama/master/install/local/nakama.rb
We currently only support Binary releases for the most popular Linux distributions.
You can optionally use the following systemd script to setup Nakama to start as a service.
Full support for systemd is planned. For now, you’ll have to create a the configuration files manually.
Create the service file,
Please note that you’ll need to update the paths within the systemd configuration.

chmodfor this file should be 644 (
sudo chmod 644 /usr/lib/systemd/system/nakama.service).
Enable and run the service:
sudo systemctl enable nakama sudo systemctl start nakama
Quick start a single or multi-node cluster locally and talk to it via your client.
