NOTE: The following information is applicable to Ubuntu 16.04 (LTS) or 16.10 — x86_64.

For making process simplier, you can use tools/install_ubuntu_dependencies.sh script.

Prerequisites — In order

  • Tool chain components — Used for compiling dependencies

    sudo apt-get install -y python build-essential curl automake autoconf libtool

  • Git (https://github.com/git/git) — Used for cloning and updating ADAMANT

    sudo apt-get install -y git

  • Node.js (https://nodejs.org/) — Node.js serves as the underlying engine for code execution

    System wide via package manager:

    curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_10.x | sudo -E bash -
    sudo apt-get install -y nodejs
    

    Locally using nvm:

    curl -o- https://raw.githubusercontent.com/creationix/nvm/v0.33.11/install.sh | bash
    nvm install v10.9.0
    
  • Install PostgreSQL (version 9.6.2):

    sudo apt-get purge -y postgres*
    sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://apt.postgresql.org/pub/repos/apt/ `lsb_release -cs`-pgdg main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pgdg.list'
    wget -q https://www.postgresql.org/media/keys/ACCC4CF8.asc -O - | sudo apt-key add -
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install -y postgresql postgresql-contrib libpq-dev
    
    # Create user if you are working from superuser
    adduser adamant
    sudo usermod -aG sudo adamant
    su - adamant
    
    # Create db
    sudo -u postgres createuser --createdb $USER
    createdb adamant_test
    createdb adamant_main
    sudo -u postgres psql -d adamant_test -c "alter user "$USER" with password 'password';"
    sudo -u postgres psql -d adamant_main -c "alter user "$USER" with password 'password';"
    
  • PM2 (https://github.com/Unitech/pm2) — PM2 manages the node process for ADAMANT (Optional)

    sudo npm install -g pm2

Installation Steps

Clone the ADAMANT repository using Git and initialize the modules.

git clone https://github.com/Adamant-im/adamant
cd adamant
npm install

Alternative Ubuntu install process

Alternative way to install ADAMANT with prerequisites. You need only Git installed locally. Or instead of cloning you can download and unpack zip from GitHub.

# Create user 
adduser adamant
sudo usermod -aG sudo adamant
su - adamant

git clone https://github.com/Adamant-im/adamant
cd adamant
sh tools/install_ubuntu_dependencies.sh

sudo -u postgres createuser --createdb $USER
createdb adamant_test
createdb adamant_main
sudo -u postgres psql -d adamant_test -c "alter user "$USER" with password 'password';"
sudo -u postgres psql -d adamant_main -c "alter user "$USER" with password 'password';"

npm install

Managing ADAMANT

To test that ADAMANT is built and configured correctly, run the following command:

node app.js

Once the process is verified as running correctly, CTRL+C and start the process with pm2. This will fork the process into the background and automatically recover the process if it fails.

pm2 start --name adamant app.js

After the process is started, its runtime status and log location can be retrieved by issuing the following command:

pm2 show adamant

To stop ADAMANT after it has been started with pm2, issue the following command:

pm2 stop adamant

NOTE: The port, address and config-path can be overridden by providing the relevant command switch:

pm2 start --name adamant app.js -- -p [port] -a [address] -c [config-path]

Tests

Before running any tests, please ensure ADAMANT is configured to run on the same testnet that is used by the test-suite.

Replace config.json and genesisBlock.json with the corresponding files under the test directory:

cp test/config.json test/genesisBlock.json .

NOTE: If the node was started with a different genesis block previous, trauncate the database before running tests.

dropdb adamant_test
createdb adamant_test

NOTE: The master passphrase for this genesis block is as follows:

wagon stock borrow episode laundry kitten salute link globe zero feed marble

Launch ADAMANT (runs on port 36667):

node app.js

Run the test suite:

npm test

Run individual tests:

npm test -- test/lib/accounts.js
npm test -- test/lib/transactions.js
