DAppNode Package Development

  1. Upload the avatar to IPFS

A square aspect ratio is recommended, with transparent background and 640px of width.

  1. Create a docker-compose.yml
version: '3.4'
        build: .
        image: ''

You can also do the build of the image without the docker-compose.yml and do it manually with docker build.


  1. Build the image:
docker-compose -f docker-compose.yml build
  1. Save the docker image
docker save | xz -e9vT0 >
  1. Upload the docker image to IPFS
  1. Generate the manifest (dappnode_package.json)

Please take in account that the package version is not the internal version of the package you want to upload. We use Aragon package manager, and it only lets starting with version 1 and increment one by one. Valid initial versions are 1.0.0, 0.1.0 or 0.0.1
