Convector CLI

Convector CLI is the official Command-Line Interface for Convector Framework. It is an open source project under an Apache 2.0 license to help you create Convector projects easily.


Recently malicious code was found in event-stream which is a dependency for ps-tree which is a dependency for npm-run-all, used in autogenerated projects created by convector-cli we took care of it and encourage people to upgrade their @worldsibu/convector-cli installation as soon as possible.

To upgrade:

npm update -g @worldsibu/convector-cli

Details on the incident.


  • Node 8.11.0 (other versions might work, but this is the one we use for development)
  • Docker


npm install -g @worldsibu/convector-cli

Creating a new project with a chaincode ready

npm i
# Bring up a development blockchain in your computer
npm run env:restart
# Install the chaincode to the blockchain
npm run cc:start -- CHAINCODE-NAME 1
# Upgrade the code amazing code you build on top of the template
npm run cc:upgrade -- CHAINCODE-NAME 2


conv new

The way to kickoff a new project. It includes the posibility to create a new project along a new Chaincode right out of the box. npm i and get a project working for you.

# New project
conv new <project-name> [-c -chaincode <chaincode-name>]

conv generate

The easiest way to include new chaincodes, and model and controller files.

# Creates a chaincode package with a `model` and `controller` default. This needs to be run inside a Convector project folder.
conv generate chaincode <chaincode-name>
# Creates the file in the current folder (by overriding the folder conventions).
conv generate model <chaincode-name>
# Creates the file in the current folder (by overriding the folder conventions).
conv generate controller <chaincode-name>

Tests 👷‍♂️

Fork Convector CLI repo, build it, link it to your global node_modules, and use it.

  1. First bring up all the source code dependencies by running npm i.
  2. Then run npm link to enable it globally.

Roadmap 🗺

Proposed current roadmap. Have ideas? Post them in the Issues section.

  1. Individual generators for:
    1. Project root structure - conv new
    2. Package structure - conv new -c <chaincode> conv generate
    3. Model file - conv generate model <model-name>
    4. Controller file - conv generate controller <controller-name>
    5. Convector Tool: Dev Env and Chaincode Manager - npm run env:restart npm run cc:start -- <chaincode-name> <version>
  2. Log usage information to internet.
  3. [🤚 We are here] Unify other Convector CLIs into one.
  4. Test methods generation from controller.
  5. Error collection details - report.
  6. Versioning of cc creation, distribute different versions of dependencies.
  7. Download settings from the internet.
