golem SLATE


SLATE is a code pen for writing a requester script to have work computed by the golem network.

SLATE is an SPA that utilizes dockerized yagna environments to communicate with the golem network.

There is no need to setup the yagna daemon, prepare a Python or NodeJS development environment, write a full requester script, or even stay online while the requester is running!

The user only needs to provide 3 things:

  • The hash for the desired gvmkit image
  • A function to enumerate the tasks
  • A function to process each task

The user may upload files for use in the requester script, and the user may download files returned from the golem worker.

Click the Create a new SLATE button to prepare a new working environment. If there are any slots open you will be taken to a new page. If not, try again later!

The new slate is created with the standard blender example prepared. You can view the code for it in the codepen_import.ts file.

You may create your own script by implementing the CodePenParams class in the same way the blender example has done. You may also upload files into your slate and reference them in your script.

You may need to wait a few seconds for the yagna daemon to initialize. You may view yagna.log in slate to ensure it is running before clicking Run

You may also choose to make no changes, and simply click Run to send the request to the network.

The output area will show the progress of running the request. Any files downloaded from the golem network by your request will be shown in the file list.
