- Node 8.9.4*
- Yarn >= 1.7.0**
- Python 2.7.X***
*Higher versions should work fine, but may cause inconsistencies. It's suggested you run 8.9.4 using
**npm is NOT supported for package management. MyCrypto uses yarn.lock to ensure sub-dependency versions are pinned, so yarn is required to install node_modules
***Python 3 is not supported, since our dependencies use
***For users trying to build with WSL, you'll need to have install libpng via
sudo apt-get install libpng16-dev.
Running the App
yarning all dependencies you can run various commands depending on what you want to do:
# run app in dev mode in browser, rebuild on file changes yarn dev
# run app in dev mode in electron, rebuild on file changes yarn dev:electron
# builds the production server app yarn build
# builds the downloadable version of the site yarn build:downloadable
# builds the electron apps yarn build:electron # builds only one OS's electron app yarn build:electron:(osx|linux|windows)
All of these builds are output to a folder in
# run unit tests with Jest yarn test
# run integration tests with Jest yarn test:int
Some parts of the site, such as the Ledger wallet, require an HTTPS environment to work. To develop on HTTPS, do the following:
- Create your own SSL Certificate (Heroku has a nice guide here)
- Move the
- Run the following command:
Address Derivation Checker:
EthereumJS-Util previously contained a bug that would incorrectly derive addresses from private keys with a 1/128 probability of occurring. A summary of this issue can be found here.
As a reactionary measure, the address derivation checker was created.
To test for correct address derivation, the address derivation checker uses multiple sources of address derivation (EthereumJS and PyEthereum) to ensure that multiple official implementations derive the same address for any given private key.
The derivation checker utility assumes that you have:
- Docker installed/available
- dternyak/eth-priv-to-addr pulled from DockerHub
Docker setup instructions:
- Install docker (on macOS, Docker for Mac is suggested)
docker pull dternyak/eth-priv-to-addr
Run Derivation Checker
The derivation checker utility runs as part of the integration test suite.
