The node command help developers run their local network. The local network contains 3 nodes. To spawn a fully functional network takes couple of minutes. At the end of this command you will be presented with accounts that you can use in your unit tests.
You need to start manualy your
Docker Quickstart Terminal.
Optional parameter --windows allows you run AE node and compiler with predefined configuration. It uses docker-compose cli commands and it starts with the default docker machine with IP "192.168.99.100"
aeproject node --windows
if docker default machine IP is running on different IP, you can set it by --docker-ip optional parameter. Default IP is "192.168.99.100"
aeproject node --windows --docker-ip 192.168.99.100
You can stop the node only by typing
aeproject node --stop
Similarly as the start commands you have few option to choose what you want to stop while doing your project.
If you have running instances of the node started from
aeproject you could check information about the node with
aeproject node --info
There is optional parameter --v. To specify a specific version of node, you should type
aeproject node --v v5.3.0
Please note that in rare occurrences you may experience some delay, or even timeout exception while trying to run the node. This usually happens due to new version of the docker images which the docker is trying to pull, or possibly could happen after updating the aeproject verson with new node/compiler version. The files may be large or connection inconsistency may occur. Please try to run
docker pull or simply retry to run
aeproject node again.
