pandacash-cli0.4.4 • Public • Published
When developing applications for Bitcoin Cash, it is important that its functionality is well-tested, as the app can potentially be dealing with large amounts of money. For testing purposes, there is a public Bitcoin Cash testnet, but this testnet can not be used without an internet connection, and obtaining larger amounts of BCH can be cumbersome. Finally, in earlier stages of development, many developers would rather not be using a public network already, and would rather develop locally until development has furthered.
This is where
pandacash-cli comes in.
pandacash-cli is a one-click Bitcoin Cash blockchain with pre-funded BCH addresses, enabling developers to quickly start working with BCH without any hassle.
pandacash-cli is similar to
ganache-cli, but for Bitcoin Cash.
pandacash-cli is a wrapper around pandacash-core.
brew install node
npm install --global pandacash-cli
pandacash-cli, it can be used as a command-line tool to quickly spin up a local development BCH blockchain with a single command. The local blockchain comes with ten pre-funded BCH addresses, which can be used in the local development process.
$ pandacash-cli <options>
--accounts: Specify the number of accounts to generate at startup.
--mnemonic: bip39 mnemonic phrase for generating a PRNG seed, which is in turn used for hierarchical deterministic (HD) account generation.
--debug: Show debug output from the bitcoin node.
