Compile and Install


We highly recommend to run PaddleFL in Docker

#Pull and run the docker
docker pull
docker run --name <docker_name> --net=host -it -v $PWD:/root <image id> /bin/bash

#Install paddle_fl
pip install paddle_fl

We also prepare a stable redis package for you to download and install, which will be used in tasks with MPC.

wget --no-check-certificate
tar -xf redis-stable.tar
cd redis-stable &&  make

Compile From Source Code

A. Environment preparation

  • CentOS 6 or CentOS 7 (64 bit)

  • Python 2.7.15+/3.5.1+/3.6/3.7 ( 64 bit) or above

  • pip or pip3 9.0.1+ (64 bit)

  • PaddlePaddle release 1.8

  • Redis 5.0.8 (64 bit)

  • GCC or G++ 4.8.3+

  • cmake 3.15+

B. Clone the source code, compile and install

Fetch the source code and checkout stable release

git clone
cd /path/to/PaddleFL

# Checkout stable release
mkdir build && cd build

Execute compile commands, where PYTHON_EXECUTABLE is path to the python binary where the PaddlePaddle is installed, CMAKE_CXX_COMPILER is the path of G++ and PYTHON_INCLUDE_DIRS is the corresponding python include directory. You can get the PYTHON_INCLUDE_DIRS via the following command:

${PYTHON_EXECUTABLE} -c "from distutils.sysconfig import get_python_inc;print(get_python_inc())"

Then you can put the directory in the following command and make:

make -j$(nproc)

Install the package:

make install
cd /path/to/PaddleFL/python
${PYTHON_EXECUTABLE} sdist bdist_wheel
pip or pip3 install dist/***.whl -U
