ARK-DESKTOP

Quick setup with Vagrant

You can deploy a bridgechain and explorer within its own virtual setup on your Desktop machine. This requires Vagrant version 2 and up, and also requires VirtualBox to be installed.

  1. Install Vagrant on your local computer
  2. Clone the ark-deployer from our repository
git clone https://github.com/ArkEcosystem/deployer.git ark-deployer && cd ark-deployer
  1. Run the vagrant command
vagrant up

Vagrant will then reboot. Once finished, wait a further minute or so and you can access the Core and Explorer using the below URLs:

Core P2P API: http://192.168.33.10:4102/

Core Public API: http://192.168.33.10:4103/

Explorer: http://192.168.33.10:4200/

Detailed Guide

Follow this full guide to get the best out of your Bridgechain.

Manual installation

Prerequisites

  • User running the deployer commands must have sudo access

Setup

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install -y git curl
git clone https://github.com/ArkEcosystem/deployer.git ark-deployer && cd ark-deployer
source setup.sh

Core Installation

Note: You cannot specify the Core IP because the config that is generated would result all nodes only connecting to 1 forger. By default Core listens on all available IPs and 127.0.0.1 is used when forging.

JSON Config

As mentioned in the parameters list, it's possible to pass in a JSON config file to load all properties, although they're not all required. For a full example file of all possible options, take a look here. For a small example, see below:

{
    "coreIp": "0.0.0.0",
    "p2pPort": 4102,
    "apiPort": 4103,
    "explorerIp": "127.0.0.1",
    "explorerPort": 4200
}

To use a config file for installation, simply use the --config argument. For example:

./bridgechain.sh install-core --config /path/to/config.json
