What Channels CC is?
Instant payment mechanism, designing as secured by POW. Imho much more better than Lighting Network.
More information can be found here: https://github.com/KomodoPlatform/Mastering_CryptoConditions/blob/master/all_chapters.md#chapter-10---channels-example And here: https://github.com/KomodoPlatform/komodo/blob/master/src/cc/channels.cpp
What this tool do?
This tool is a graphical implementation of some ChannelsCC RPC calls.
At the moment it's a prototype / mock so I didn't care about UI beauty at all.
Developer installation. Tested on Ubuntu 18.04 (assuming python 3.6+ is installed by default) And Komodo daemon was built from FSM branch of https://github.com/jl777/komodo/
Pre-built packages are under development.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kivy-team/kivy sudo apt-get install python3-pip libssl-dev cython3 libgl-dev git python3-kivy pip3 install requests wheel python-bitcoinlib slick-bitcoinrpc pygame git clone https://github.com/tonymorony/ChannelsCC-GUI cd ChannelsCC-GUI python3 ChannelsCC.py
In case of localhost daemon usage use 127.0.0.1 as RPC address. Username, password and port can be found in .conf file for desired asset chain
If you want to use remote host for RPC connection you need to add your IP as rpcallowip= param to desired asset chain daemon config
