Hello, I want to contribute in this project, and I have experience in python and c++
I am having trouble building the source code. the ccmake command says that BOOST_ROOT is not set and it can't find the boost libraries, how do I go about it?

@anurag95, can you give us the output of "cmake ../" (use pastebin or gist)

@anurag95, my bad, I suggested pastebin, but actually I'm behind a firewall which blocks it ;) can you repaste it here: https://gist.github.com/
I have downloaded the boost library

@anurag95, what OS and boost version do you have and how did you install boost (sources or repository?)
Did you try setting the BOOST_ROOT and/or BOOST_INCLUDEDIR variables ?

@kiryx My boost_1_57_0 folder is in /usr/local/ What do I have to write in the export command? Because I restarted bash, still it did not work with /usr/local/
