First, make sure you have the following installed:
Everything that you need to set up a Hub is available from our Indra repository.
Clone Indra and
Initialize Ganache CLI or Ganache Desktop with the following mnemonic and settings:
$ ganache-cli -m "candy maple cake sugar pudding cream honey rich smooth crumble sweet treat" -i 4447 -b 3
If you want to make things difficult for yourself, you can use a random seed. In that case, follow the instructions under Testnet Deployment for how to update your deployment scripts.
Then, compile and deploy contracts:
$ truffle compile$ truffle migrate --reset --network=development
Clean up any old docker containers.
$ docker system prune -af
Then run the deployment script. This may take some time.
$ npm run start-hub
Congratulations! You just set up a Connext Hub. Check
localhost:3000 to test if it spun up correctly.
Start your Geth node and then compile/migrate the contracts.
kernel/deploy.prod.sh and replace the default values for
HUB_ACCOUNT with the corresponding values for your specific deployment. Use
accounts for Hub's address.
After editing the deploy script, spinning up the Hub is the same process as for a local deployment:
$ docker system prune -af$ npm run start-hub
You can view the logs for the Hub's docker containers with:
npm run logs-hub
$ npm run logs-chainsaw
npm run db will let you access the postgres instance.
If you can't see the logs, try running the following:
$ docker service ps --no-trunc connext_hub
$ docker service ps --no-trunc connext_chainsaw
Linux users: Docker does not enable
host.docker.internal unlike for Mac/PC. This means that chainsaw and your Hub are not able to connect to your blockchain. We're aware of the problem and trying to come up with a workaround. If you have any ideas, open an issue in the repository.
