Bitcoin Fork Monitor Website

This repo contains the source code for the https://www.btcforkmonitor.info

Building and testing locally

Install Python 3. Install all of the dependencies in the requirements.txt file.

For testing and debugging purposes, it may be easier to replace the lines in settings about the DATABASES with the following:

DATABASES = {
    'default': {
        'ENGINE': 'django.db.backends.sqlite3',
        'NAME': os.path.join(BASE_DIR, 'db.sqlite3'),
    }
}

Running

The first time you run this software, you will need to do some database preparation and setup. You will need to run the following commands first:

python manage.py makemigrations
python manage.py migrate
python manage.py createsuperuser

Then you can run the website with

python manage.py runserver

The website will be available at http://127.0.0.1:8000. The administration panel is available at http://127.0.0.1:8000/admin

The first time you run this, you will need to login to the admin panel and add some nodes, one block for each node, and the initial fork state.

Developing

Run the website with

python manage.py runserver

Any changes made to any of the file in this project will be automatically updated and reflected in the website by refreshing the web page.

Updating information from nodes

To update information from the nodes, you will need to specify RPC_USER and RPC_PASSWORD environment variables. These should match the rpcuser and rpcpassword that you have specified for your nodes. THe rpcuser and rpcpassword must be the same for all nodes. To update the database, run the following command:

python manage.py node_updates

modifying the updater

The updater command's logic is defined in monitor/node_updates.py.
