Overview of Cyrus development environment¶
- While Cyrus itself can be run under many operating systems, we recommend the following operating systems for development, because the dependencies and libraries are known. If you get a development environment working under a different operating system, we'd love to hear about it.
- Debian / Ubuntu
- Fedora / Redhat
- Cyrus IMAPd
Can't do anything without this!
Follow the Cyrus IMAP installation guide.
- Cyrus SASL
Used for providing user authentication to the mail server.
When developing against Cyrus, however, we assume that Cyrus SASL is a third party pre-built component. There is a separate section on compiling from source if you're interested in contributing to Cyrus SASL.

The Cyrus testing guide has instructions for installing Cassandane.
