Chakra is currently in pre-alpha, so installation is definitely not straightforward

Install from source


You will need clang/llvm, dotnet, and make to install Chakra.


Clone the repository from Github:

$ git clone
$ cd chakra-lang

Then use make to install

$ make
$ make install

This should build the compiler and the runtime object file and put them the former into a place likely to already be in your PATH.
