Vault Ethereum Plugin v0.3.0

The first incarnation of the vault-ethereum plugin was an exercise in experimenting with an idea and proving a point. 2 years later, I feel both ends were acheived.

Having had several occasions to take this PoC to production with companies in the financial and blockchain communities (plug for Immutability, LLC's custom development!) I've decided to release an upgrade that tries to make the development experience better. I've also restricted the surface area of the plugin to a minimum.

Excepting the convert API, which I keep for entertainment value.

Testing - in one terminal...

$ cd $GOPATH/src/
$ make docker-build
$ make run

Then, open a different terminal...

$ cd $GOPATH/src/

# Authenticate
$ source ./ auth
$ ./ >

View the demo

If everything worked... And you have run the command above, your demo is had by viewing the results:

$ cat ./

If everything didn't work, tell me why.

What is the API?

The best way to understand the API is to use the path-help command. For example:

$ vault path-help vault-ethereum/accounts/bob/deploy                                                                [±new-version ●]
Request:        accounts/bob/deploy
Matching Route: ^accounts/(?P<name>\w(([\w-.]+)?\w)?)/deploy$

Deploy a smart contract from an account.

    address (string)

        <no description>

    bin (string)

        The compiled smart contract.

    gas_limit (string)

        The gas limit for the transaction - defaults to 0 meaning estimate.

    name (string)

        <no description>

    version (string)

        The smart contract version.


Deploy a smart contract to the network.
