This repository holds the Arweave server, as well as the App Developer Toolkit (ADT) and the Arweave testing framework, TNT/NO-VLNS.
Arweave is a distributed, cryptographically verified permanent archive built on a cryptocurrency that aims to, for the first time, provide feasible data permanence. By leveraging our novel Blockweave datastructure, data is stored in a decentralised, peer-to-peer manner where miners are incentivised to store rare data.
In order to run the Arweave server prototype and ADT, a recent (R20 and above) version of Erlang/OTP is required as well as a version of make.
To get started, simply download this repo. You can start an Arweave server
session simply by running
You can learn more about building Arweave ADT apps by checking out our documentation here.

Ubuntu/Debian Linux Quickstart
You can download the Arweave codebase, all dependencies and start mining straight away by opening a terminal and running:
curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ArweaveTeam/arweave/master/install.sh | bash && cd arweave && ./arweave-server mine peer xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx peer yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy
Don’t forget to change xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx, yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy, etc to the IP addresses you want to peer with.
TNT (Tiny Network Tests) and NO-VLNS (Never Off Very Large Network Simulator) are the two halves of Arweave's testing suite.
You can launch TNT by running
make tnt and NO-VLNS by running
App Developer Toolkit (ADT)
