Compiling Storm (and jzmq) on Mac OSX
I recently setup a new machine, went to compile Storm, and forgot what a PITA it is. Here is a blog post so future-me knows how to do it.
The biggest hurdle is jzmq. To get that installed, your going to need some make mojo, and some libraries. I use Brew. If you are still using macports, consider a switch.
Anyway, here is the recipe to get jzmq installed assuming you have Brew.
$ git clone https://github.com/nathanmarz/jzmq.git $ brew install automake $ brew install libtool $ brew install zmq $ cd jzmq $ ./configure
That resulted in a cryptic message:
cannot find jni.h in /Library/Java/Home/include
To fix that, I found a suggested fix and created a symbolic link.
$ sudo ln -s /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/A/Headers/ /Library/Java/Home/include
Then, you hit this:
No rule to make target `classdist_noinst.stamp'
I had to dig through Google cache archives to find a solution for that one:
$ touch src/classdist_noinst.stamp
Then, you hit:
error: cannot access org.zeromq.ZMQThat's because you haven't compiled zeromq yet! So:
$ cd src $ javac -d . org/zeromq/*.javaWasn't that easy? =) All that's left is to build and install:
$ cd .. $ make $ sudo make installNow you have jzmq installed. So we can get on with Storm. Storm needs lein to build. Don't go grabbing the latest version of lein either. You'll need < 2. There is an explicit check that was added to Storm that will refuse to build with lein >= 2. You can grab older versions here. (we use 1.7.1)Unzip that and copy $LEIN_HOME/bin/lein to your bin directory. Make it executable and put it in your path. Once you've done that, building Storm isn't so bad. From the root of the storm source tree:
$ lein deps $ lein jar $ lein install
