Ethereum Block Alarm

The Ethereum blockchain adds blocks at a rate of about 10 seconds/block. Some contracts need things to happen at a certain block height, and this tool can help track when that should be happening.

Install the required Node modules by running

npm install

inside the project directory. If developing in a Docker environment, where Node/NPM isn't installed locally, run:

docker run -it --rm --name npm -v "$PWD":/usr/src/app -w /usr/src/app node npm install --no-bin-links

Development web server

npm install -g http-server
http-server /src/web -p8080

Or, in a Docker environment:

docker-compose build
docker-compose up -d

That uses the Dockerfile and docker-compose.yml files to get a container running that uses http-server to host the files.

Either way, then visiting http://localhost:8080 should show the site.

Run Gulp tasks

In a Docker environment, the "web" container is configured with Gulp, so can be used to run tasks as well:

docker-compose run -d web gulp watch
docker-compose run --rm web gulp less
