Notes

WalletTech relies on bytech-service to manage wallet container & rpc communication.

Release installer & packaged archived includes a ready to use bytech-service binary, which is unmodified copy BytechCoin release archive.

On first launch, WalletTech will try to detect location/path of bundled bytech-service binary, but if it's failed, you can manually set path to the bytech-service binary on the Settings screen.

If you don't trust the bundled bytech-service file, you can compare the checksum (sha256sum) against one from the official release, or simply download and use the binary from official BytechCoin release, which is available here: https://github.com/bytechcoin/bytechcoin/releases. Then, make sure to update your bytech-service path setting.

# https://github.com/bytechcoin/bytechcoin/releases
# extract the bytech-service executable somewhere

# clone the repo
$ git clone https://github.com/bytechcoin/bytech-wallet-electron
$ cd bytech-wallet-electron

# install dependencies
$ npm install

# create build+dist directory
$ mkdir -p ./build && mkdir -p ./dist

# copy/symlink icons from assets, required for packaging
$ cp ./src/assets/icon.* ./build/

# build GNU/Linux package
$ mkdir -p ./bin/lin
$ cp /path/to/linux-version-of/bytech-service ./bin/lin/
$ npm run dist-lin

# build Windows package
$ mkdir -p ./bin/win
$ cp /path/to/win-version-of/bytech-service.exe ./bin/win/
$ npm run dist-lin

# build OSX package
