To install and use Lisk Service just follow the respective setup guides.

Docker image

The most convenient way to set up Lisk Service.

The docker image will install all required dependencies that are needed to run Lisk Service on your machine.

Source code

Install from source code if you want to customize the codebase of Lisk Service, e.g. if you want to adjust the API to be fully compatible with your blockchain application.

As an alternative to the Docker image setup, it is also possible to install Lisk Service from source code.

This setup requires more steps than the Docker image installation, however this provides the developer with the possibility to customize the Lisk Service codebase.
