TrufflePig 🍄🐷

Greenkeeper badge

TrufflePig is a development tool that provides a simple HTTP API to find and read from Truffle-generated contract files, for use during local development.

The pig in action!

Installation

Install globally:

$ yarn global add trufflepig

Or as a devDependency to your truffle project:

$ yarn add trufflepig --dev

Prerequisites

  • A Truffle framework project with built contract json files
  • Some means of making HTTP requests and parsing the JSON results

Usage

Just run

$ trufflepig

from your truffle project and access your contracts under

http://localhost:3030/contracts?name=MyContractName

and looks like this:

{
  "contractName": "MyContractName",
  "abi": {},
  ...
}

The contracts will be queried by the contractName property in the truffle .json output. Once contract files are changed, trufflepig picks it up and serves the changed version of it.

Serving accounts data from ganache or geth / parity

Trufflepig not only helps you to access those delicious truffles but also to easily access the set up addresses in ganache, geth or parity. These will be available under

http://localhost:3030/accounts

and looks like this:

{
  "0x57bb04b8a56c4530ea75ded0a8a0632987d7ec44":"0xd4f10bbe0e132a0d7a7aea3d92e68791f548b67dc5d1dac8ad56edfbc5038ba5",
  "0x241b5d67f21f23d03dec3ffc50504472f265745f":"0xb526e1b11956eb45c3c306a9fef1775b44e22c5e6aec30e103d7d973c6b29189",
  ...
}

Usage with ganache

Start ganache using

$ ganache-cli --acctKeys ganache-accounts.json

This will create a ganache-accounts.json in the directory you run ganache from (preferably your project directory)

Then run trufflepig using

$ trufflepig --ganacheKeyFile ganache-accounts.json

Usage with keystore files

You can run your prefered ethereum development node with some accounts set up. In parity run

$ parity --keys-path YOUR_PREFERRED_KEYPATH

and in geth

$ geth --keystore YOUR_PREFERRED_KEYPATH

to define the directory for accounts to use when starting the node. This directory has to contain one or more keystore files in json format.

Trufflepig can conveniently serve those, too! Just start it with

$ trufflepig --keystoreDir YOUR_PREFERRED_KEYPATH [--keystorePassword KEYSTORE_PASSWORD]

Use the --keystorePassword option to provide a password in case your keyfiles ar encrypted.

API

Command line usage

$ trufflepig --help
Options:
  --help                  Show help [boolean]
  --version               Show version number [boolean]
  -p, --port              Port to serve the contracts from [number] [default: 3030]
  -v, --verbose           Be extra chatty [boolean] [default: false]
  -c, --contractDir       Directory to read contracts from [string] [default: "./build/contracts"]
  -g, --ganacheKeyFile    Ganache accounts file (.json), will serve accounts under /accounts [string]
  -k, --keystoreDir       Directory for keystore files, will serve accounts under /accounts [string]
  -s, --keystorePassword  Password to decrypt keystore files [string]

Programmatic usage

const TrufflePig = require('trufflepig');

const pig = new TrufflePig({
    // These are the defaults
    contractDir: './build/contracts',
    port: 3030,
    verbose: true,
    ganacheKeyFile: '',
    keystoreDir: '',
    keystorePassword: '',
});

pig.start();

That's it! Have a lot of fun truffleing!
