    How to use

    Install the binary from NPM by typing npm i -g @ethereum-alarm-clock/cli and hitting enter.

    To run a TimeNode or schedule a transaction you will need to create a keystore. eac contains some utilities to help out with this.

    eac createWallet

    will guide you through the steps of creating a keystore.

    eac fundWallet <amt> --wallet <wallet_path> --password <string> --providers <urls>

    will send <amt> ether to each account in the passed in wallet from a local unlocked account. Notice, you must be running a local node with a local unlocked account to use this utility. Otherwise you can send ether to your wallet accounts in any other way.

    If you ever get tired of running a TimeNode, you can drain the funds held in the wallet to an external account like so:

    eac drainWallet <target_address> --wallet <wallet_path> --password <string>

    Once you have your wallet set up and funded, run a TimeNode with some default params like so: (providers is the comma-separated list of Ethereum node urls)

    eac timenode --wallet <wallet_path> --password <string> --providers <urls> --maxDeposit 1

    Open up ~/.eac.log for the output, I prefer to follow the output in a new screen:

    tail -f ~/.eac.log


    Sample Dockerfile for running the eac.js-cli node with remote web3 provider


    To create a docker image from the Dockerfile you need copy your wallet encrypted keystore json file to the root directory.

    update the wallet file name in the Dockerfileon L#8 and L#13

    Next step is to run docker build command

    docker build . -t eac.js-cli --build-arg WALLET={WALLET_NAME}


    • {WALLET_NAME} filename of the wallet file, has to be located in same dir as Dockerfile

    Next running docker image

    docker run -it -e PASSWORD={PASSWORD} -e PROVIDER={PROVIDER} eac.js-cli


    • {PASSWORD} is a password used to encrypt wallet keystore file
    • {PROVIDER} is an comma-separated list of urls of web3 provider
