Universe, a bebOS Dimension Host Implementation
Universe is an implementation of a bebOS Dimension Host. Universes are open-source dimension hosts for BEB, a protocol keeping the internet human. Universes are accessed by clients such as B7B.
This is an early work that is subject to heavy changes, see our Github Issues if you wish to contribute.
See our developer documents at
bebOS Dimension GraphQL APIs.
Self-hosting Your Universe
We've provided a starter
Dockerfile for you, with
We have a self-hosting guide on our docs which walks through Railway deployment all the way to using our resolver contract.
- You'll need a MongoDB server, either by deploying MongoDB yourself or using a hosted solution such as MongoDB Atlas or Railway with our tutorial.
- You'll also need to deploy this Dockerfile to a hosting location of your preference (Railway, Heroku, etc).
- Once you have a hosted url, you can set this path in the BEBverse resolver smart contracts. For example,
foo.bebwould resolve to your host at
example-load-balancer-1234567890.us-west-2.elb.amazonaws.com. See our self-hosting guide for more details!

Developing in the bebdomains/universe repo
Welcome to the setup guide for Universe! To start, you'll need node.js, yarn, and mongodb configured locally.
Once you have node.js, yarn and mongodb, you'll need to fill the following environment variables to have a fully operational bebOS instance on localhost:
.env file setup
NODE_ENV=production MONGO_URL=mongodb+srv://... # your local mongo url JWT_SECRET=change-this
Optional environment variables
BLOCK_INITIALIZE=true # Block the initialization of communities on your universe GLOBAL_MODERATOR_ID=abc123... # An account id that can moderate all dimensions IMGUR_CLIENT_ID=123... # Enable imgur image uploads on all dimensions https://apidocs.imgur.com
Once your environment is configured, run
yarn dev --self-hosted to have a running instance, and play around with graphql commands at
