Build ALICE software
The ALICE experiment currently comprises two frameworks:
The preferred way to get ALICE software built on your computer is by means of alidock. We provide users with a consistent environment based on containers. By using alidock, you will benefit from precompiled binaries which will make you save plenty of time. This method works on any modern Linux distribution and macOS.
We also have instructions for installing your software without using our controlled environment. We do not recommend you to follow this path, though, since alidock has better support.
