Without Docker

It is possible to build LoRa App Server without Docker. However this requires to install a couple of dependencies (depending your platform, there might be pre-compiled packages available):


Make sure you have Go installed (1.10+) and that the LoRa App Server repository has been cloned to $GOPATH/src/github.com/brocaar/lora-app-server.


Make sure you have a recent version of Node.js installed, as Node.js is used to compile the front-end code.

Go protocol buffer support

Install the C++ implementation of protocol buffers and Go support by following the GO support for Protocol Buffers installation instructions.
