DigiAssets Metadata Server

REST API server for fetching and sharing DigiAssets transactions metadata. To learn how this repo fits into the DigiAssets stack please read the API docs & wiki.

Getting Started

Installation

$ npm i -g digiasset-metadata-server

Run

Currently, the server uses AWS S3 storage service as a caching layer. So, in order to use the server one needs to set the environment variables:

AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID
AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY
AWS_S3_BUCKET

Then, you can run the DigiAssets metadata server with the following options:

$ digiasset-metadata-server [options]

  Options:

    -h, --help                                         output usage information
    -V, --version                                      output the version number
    -p, --port <port>                                  Port to listen on

Or just run it with the defaults using:

$ digiasset-metadata-server
