Build Status Coverage Status Dependencies Status License: GPL v3

What is the Lisk Genesis Block Creator

The genesis block creator gives developers the possibility to customise their own genesis block for sidechain and blockchain app prototypes during the Lisk alpha SDK phase.

This is by no means meant to support the production phase yet.

Installation

You can install Lisk Genesis by using npm

npm install lisk-genesis

Or using yarn

yarn add lisk-genesis

Usage

After installation you can use lisk-genesis. Below you the find possible function examples.

Construction

Starting with construction there are two options, use a generated passphrase for the genesis account or use a passphrase of your choosing.

const { GenesisBlock } = require('lisk-genesis');
const genesisBlock = new GenesisBlock();
const { GenesisBlock } = require('lisk-genesis');
const genesisBlock = new GenesisBlock("medal differ embody nose prepare inherit popular allow pizza design youth more");

Add Transfer

To add funds to an account you can use the addTransfer() function

genesisBlock.addTransfer({
    recipientId: "18254294583320434366L",
    amount: "10000000000"
});

It's also possible to add multiple transfer transactions at once

genesisBlock.addTransfer([
    {
        recipientId: "18254294583320434366L",
        amount: "10000000000"
    },
    {
        recipientId: "7979485526436233387L",
        amount: "10000000000"
    }
]);

Add Delegate

To add delegates to your genesis block use the addDelegate() function

// Passphrase is optional if not given a random passphrase will be used and saved to genesis_delegates.json
genesisBlock.addDelegate({
    username: "genesis_0",
    passphrase: "trigger oblige mom orchard please knife slow mixed afraid until suspect setup"
});

It's also possible to add multiple delegates at once

genesisBlock.addDelegate([
    { username: "genesis_0" },
    { username: "genesis_1" },
    { username: "genesis_2" },
    { username: "genesis_3" },
    { username: "genesis_4" }
]);

Add Votes

To vote for delegates you can use the addVote() function. addVote uses two arguments passphrase and an array with usernames.

genesisBlock.addVote(
    "same swamp fade drink radio fancy matter error picnic dial tone cinnamon",
    ["genesis_1", "genesis_0"]
);

Save the Genesis Block

To save the genesis_block.json, genesis_account.json and genesis_delegates.json use the saveGenesisBlock() function.

genesisBlock.saveGenesisBlock('.', true);

Optional arguments are path default '.' and saveGenesisAccount default true.
