Source

If you are on a platform without support for pre-compiled wheels, you will need certain system packages in order to build from source.

A few environment variables influence the build:

  • COINCURVE_UPSTREAM_REF - This is the Git reference of libsecp256k1 to use rather than the (frequently updated) default.
  • COINCURVE_IGNORE_SYSTEM_LIB - The presence of this will force fetching of libsecp256k1 even if it's already detected at the system level.

Tip

To avoid installing the binary wheels on compatible distributions, use the --no-binary option.

pip install coincurve --no-binary coincurve

Alpine

sudo apk add autoconf automake build-base libffi-dev libtool pkgconfig python3-dev

Debian/Ubuntu
