Comment: Found I needed to install the libssl-dev package to get through building trunk. Not sure what the generic term is, but figured the apt package name was better than nothing.

Thrift's compiler is written in C++ and designed to be portable, but there are some system requirements:

Basic requirements

  • A relatively POSIX-compliant *NIX system
    • Cygwin or MinGW can be used on Windows
  • g++ 3.3.5+
  • boost 1.33.1+ (1.34.0 for building all tests)
  • Runtime libraries for lex and yacc might be needed for the compiler.

Requirements for building from SVN

  • GNU build tools: autoconf 2.59+ (2.60+ recommended), automake 1.9+, libtool 1.5.24+
  • pkg-config autoconf macros (pkg.m4) (Use MacPorts for Mac OS X)

  • lex and yacc (developed primarily with flex and bison)
  • libssl-dev

Language requirements

  • C++
    • Boost 1.33.1+
    • libevent (optional, to build the nonblocking server)
    • zlib (optional)
  • Java
    • Java 1.5+
    • Apache Ant
    • Apache Ivy (recommended)
    • Apache Commons Lang (recommended)
    • SLF4J
  • C#: Mono 1.2.4+ (and pkg-config to detect it) or Visual Studio 2005+
  • Python 2.4+ (including header files for extension modules)
  • PHP 5.0+ (optionally including header files for extension modules)
  • Ruby 1.8+ (including header files for extension modules)
  • Erlang R12 (R11 works but not recommended)
  • Perl 5
    • Bit::Vector
    • Class::Accessor

These are only required if you choose to build the libraries for the given language.
