Building from source

To download and install Tarantool developer packages and OCI, say:

(example for Ubuntu)

# Tarantool
sudo apt-get install cmake
sudo apt-get install tarantool
sudo apt-get install tarantool-dev
# see the link to installation instructions below

(example for CentOS)

sudo yum install cmake
sudo yum install tarantool
sudo yum install tarantool-devel
# assuming that OCI rpm is already downloaded into the '.' directory
sudo yum install ./oracle-instantclient12.2-basic-
sudo yum install ./oracle-instantclient12.2-devel-

(example for Mac OS)

brew install cmake
brew install tarantool
# see the link to installation instructions below

Here are installation and setup instructions for OCI.

The oracle package is in a private repository.

If you have access, еo download and install it, say:

cd ~
git clone
cd oracle
# assuming that oracle-instantclient is installed from rpm
cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=RelWithDebInfo -DORACLE_LIB_ROOT=/usr/lib/oracle/12.2/client64/lib/ -DORACLE_INCLUDE_ROOT=/usr/include/oracle/12.2/client64/ .

This should produce a library named ./oracle/ Make sure that this file, or a copy, is on the path that the Lua require statement uses (package.path). The easiest way to ensure this is to add:

sudo make install

Example program

See examples in test/*.lua.
