@WilliamKingNoel-Bot WilliamKingNoel-Bot released this Mar 20, 2019


This initial release of Cardano Wallet Backend includes two binaries:

  • cardano-wallet-server
  • cardano-wallet-launcher

The cardano-wallet-server in future will serve API and CLI interfaces for the wallet backend. In this release it is just a stub.

The cardano-wallet-launcher is responsible for starting (and terminating when closed) the cardano-wallet-server and cardano-http-bridge which is an interface that Cardano Wallet Backend uses to interact with the blockchain. The cardano-http-bridge is therefore a prerequisite that needs to be installed before running the cardano-wallet-launcher.

Installation Instructions

Please note that currently only Unix\Linux platform is supported.

  1. Install cardano-http-bridge.

    • Install the rust toolchain.
    • In terminal run cargo install --git
    • make sure $HOME/.cargo/bin is on your $PATH
  2. Download cardano-wallet-server and cardano-wallet-launcher and put it in the directory that is on your $PATH, e.g. /usr/local/bin. Make sure to add exec permissions on binary files:

    • chmod u+x cardano-wallet-server cardano-wallet-launcher
  3. Start cardano-wallet-launcher --help and see available parameters and follow instructions about how to install cardano-http-bridge if you haven't done already in point 1.
