A Viacoin 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 Viacoin Core with additional indexing 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.
npm install -g viacore-nodeviacore-node start
Note: For your convenience, we distribute bitcoind binaries for x86_64 Linux and x86_64 Mac OS X. Upon npm install, the binaries for your platform will be downloaded. For more detailed installation instructions, or if you want to compile the project yourself, then please see the Bitcore branch of Viacoin Core with additional indexing.
Viacore includes a Command Line Interface (CLI) for managing, configuring and interfacing with your Viacore Node.
viacore-node create -d <bitcoin-data-dir> mynodecd mynodeviacore-node install <service>viacore-node install https://github.com/yourname/helloworld
This will create a directory with configuration files for your node and install the necessary dependencies. For more information about (and developing) services, please see the Service Documentation.
There are several add-on services available to extend the functionality of Bitcore:
