Storj Test Network
The Storj Test Network allows you to run all of the components of the Storj system on your local computer.
In every day Storj usage, the Satellite, Storage node, and Uplink are run separately, but for the test network, all three components are set up and run in the same process.
We call the test network Captain Planet, or
captplanet for short, as it
contains all the powers combined of the Satellite, Storage node, and Uplink.
Installation and configuration
First, you'll need at least Go 1.11. Once Go is installed run:
git clone https://github.com/storj/storj.git storj cd storj go install ./cmd/captplanet
storj folder is outside of
GOPATH, otherwise you may see errors.
This will install the
captplanet binary to wherever Go is configured to output binaries on your system, by default ~/go/bin.
Next, run setup:
You now have a configured Storj test network with default configuration options.
It's worth it to take a look at
~/.storj/capt/config.yaml and tweak your
configuration for your desired purposes.
The next step is to run it!
Running the test network
Captain Planet runs all of the required components of the Storj system. To start the test network with your configuration, run:
Your test network is now running. You should see output containing your Amazon S3 gateway access and secret keys, which you will need to connect Amazon S3 compatible clients.
