    ioncore Node Dash

    A Dash full node for building applications and services with Node.js. A node is extensible and can be configured to run additional services. At the minimum a node has an interface to Dash Core v0.12.1.x for more advanced address queries. Additional services can be enabled to make a node more useful such as exposing new APIs, running a block explorer and wallet service.

    Install

    npm install -g ioncore-node

    Prerequisites

    • Dash Core (v0.12.1.x) with support for additional indexing (see above)
    • Node.js v0.10, v0.12, v4 or v5
    • ZeroMQ (libzmq3-dev for Ubuntu/Debian or zeromq on OSX)
    • ~20GB of disk storage
    • ~1GB of RAM

    Configuration

    ioncore includes a Command Line Interface (CLI) for managing, configuring and interfacing with your ioncore Node.

    ioncore-node create -d <dash-data-dir> mynode
    cd mynode
    ioncore-node install <service>
    ioncore-node install https://github.com/yourname/helloworld
    ioncore-node start

    This will create a directory with configuration files for your node and install the necessary dependencies.

    Please note that Dash Core v0.12.1.x will be downloaded automatically. Once completed the dashd binary should be placed into the <dash-data-dir> folder specified during node creation.

    For more information about (and developing) services, please see the Service Documentation.
