This implements the compact block filter construction in BIP 158. The code is
not used anywhere in the Bitcoin Core code base yet. The next step towards
BIP 157 support would be to create an indexing module similar to TxIndex that
constructs the basic and extended filters for each validated block.
At this point the only error is can’t find boost_thread lib
The issue is the homebrew boost ships libboost_thread-mt libs but doesn’t
include plain libboost_thread, so clang can’t find it. Interestingly, homebrew
boost does have both plain and -mt files for the libboost_system libraries.
Solution, with no guarantees that this is "the Right Way to do things", but
appears to work fine for the configure stage:
ln -s libboost_thread-mt.a libboost_thread.a
ln -s libboost_thread-mt.dylib libboost_thread.dylib
The primary build process for this repository is to use GitHub Actions to
build binary wheels for MacOS, Linux (x64 and aarch64), and Windows and publish
them with a source wheel on PyPi. See .github/workflows/build.yml. CMake uses
to download pybind11. Building is then
managed by cibuildwheel. Further
installation is then available via pip install chiabip158 e.g.
Contributing and workflow
Contributions are welcome and more details are available in chia-blockchain's
The master branch is usually the currently released latest version on PyPI.
Note that at times chiabip158 will be ahead of the release version that
chia-blockchain requires in it's master/release version in preparation for a
new chia-blockchain release. Please branch or fork master and then create a
pull request to the master branch. Linear merging is enforced on master and
merging requires a completed review. PRs will kick off a GitHub actions ci
