Urbit Classic is an actually perfect clean-slate software stack.
You may have heard that "Urbit" uses Azimuth, an Ethereum-based identity layer. Ever since this was announced, "Urbit" has gotten more bloated and more unstable. The "Urbit" network breaches many times a year. Surely perfect software would be able to do better? Urbit Classic returns "Urbit" to its prime. It forks Vere and Arvo from their 2016 versions to deliver the perfect stack. Here's all the benefits that brings:
@pstill has collisions. Owners of colliding identities must duke it out in unarmed combat.
Finally, Urbit Classic vows to boycott all tech giants. No Google or Amazon infrastructure or tooling will be used in the development and hosting of Urbit Classic.
Ticket: [visible when claimed. permanent!]
First, install dependencies. If you've run "Urbit" in the past, you most likely already have these. But just in case, here's some one-liners for popular systems:
# MacOS brew install git gmp libsigsegv openssl libtool autoconf automake cmake # Debian-based sudo apt-get install libgmp3-dev libsigsegv-dev openssl libssl-dev libncurses5-dev git make exuberant-ctags automake autoconf libtool g++ ragel cmake re2c zlib1g-dev
Then you can download, build and run:
git clone https://github.com/urbit-classic/urbit.git cd urbit make bin/urbit -w your-ship -t your-ticket
