    Using argosid in your project

    As a node package

    npm install argos-id --save


    yarn add argos-id

    npm build will generate this file and save it to dist/argos.js.

    Local development

    1. Clone this repo.

    git clone && cd argos-id

    If you would like to submit pull requests, you should instead fork this repo and then clone your fork. Note pull requests should always be made to the develop branch, which always has the latest commits.

    2. Install dependencies and link

    npm run install:dev

    install:dev is shortcut for npm install && npm link. Linking means that changes to argosid code are immediately available to local DApps without an npm install.

    3. Start the local blockchain and build argosid

    npm start

    Code changes will trigger a live rebuild.


    Command Line (All Tests)

    Our full test suite can be run with:

    npm run test

    Note: you should not have the server running at this time, as these tests start their own local blockchain instance.

    ### Command Line (Only Solidity Tests)

    Our Solidity tests (which use Truffle) are located at contracts/test.

    npm run test:contracts

    Note: you should not have the server running at this time, as these tests start their own local blockchain instance.

    Browser Tests

    A subset of our tests can be run from the browser. These tests are automatically served at http://localhost:8081 when you run npm start. These tests are automatically rerun when source or test code is changed.

    Run a subset of these tests using the grep query string parameter, for example: http://localhost:8081/?grep=IpfsService

    Using the Ganache GUI

    By default, starting argosid locally starts ganache-cli automatically. However, for development you might want to connect to the GUI version of Ganache. This provides a nice interface for browsing your local blockchain activity and can be useful for debugging.

    To use the Ganache GUI:

    1. Install Ganache
    2. Start Ganache
    3. Navigate to the settings in Ganache (click on the gear in the upper right-hand corner)
    4. Set Port Number to 8545
    5. Set Network ID to 999
    6. Under the Accounts & Keys tab, set the mnemonic to candy maple cake sugar pudding cream honey rich smooth crumble sweet treat
    7. When starting argosid locally, run npm run start:local (instead of npm run start)

    Initialize a genesis node

    geth --datadir . init ./genesis.json

    geth --datadir . --networkid 9090 console

    geth --datadir . import pk

    Start a genesis node

    geth --datadir . --networkid 999 --mine --minerthreads=4 --rpc --rpcapi "db,eth,net,web3,personal,admin" --rpccorsdomain "*" --rpcaddr ""
