The instructions below are for setting up a devnet with the HTLC branch merged. In addition, we setup the Zenon SDK for .NET.
Video Tutorial with Copy / Paste commands below
We will need git to interact wth the GitHub repositories. Execute the following command in a Terminal.
sudo apt install git
We will need Go to to compile the go-zenon code. Execute the following command in Terminal.
sudo apt install golang-go
Install DotNet SDK
The .NET SDK allows you to develop apps with .NET. If you install the .NET SDK, you don’t need to install the corresponding runtime. To install the .NET SDK, run the following commands in the Terminal:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install -y dotnet6
sudo apt install make
We need a gcc compiler to compile the go-zenon code. Check to make sure gcc is installed.
You should see something like the following in Ubuntu 22.04
gcc (Ubuntu 11.2.0-19ubuntu1) 11.2.0 Copyright (C) 2021 Free Software Foundation, Inc. This is free software; see the source for copying conditions. There is NO warranty; not even for MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
If gcc is not installed run the following command
sudo apt install gcc
After installing all the above tools make sure you close and open a new Bash Shell.
To use git we need to configure an user. Use you GitHub account if you have one; otherwise you can use anything you like.
git config --global user.email [your e-mail] git config --global user.name [your name]
We will make a repos directory under the current userprofile to store all our work. Replace the path if you want it stored on a different location.
cd ~/ mkdir repos cd repos
Create a clone of the devnet branch of the Big Inches Club House go-zenon repository.
git clone -b devnet https://github.com/Big-Inches-Club-House/go-zenon.git
Change directory to the go-zenon directory.
Merge the htlc branch with the devnet branch.
git merge origin/htlc
Compile the go-zenon code.
Configure and run a devnet node.
./build/znnd --data ./devnet generate-devnet --genesis-block=z1qqjnwjjpnue8xmmpanz6csze6tcmtzzdtfsww7,40000,400000 ./build/znnd --data ./devnet
Keep the shell open during the duration of this tutorial. It is now possible to connect the Zenon Explorer to the node.
Open a web browser and go to https://explorer.zenon.network and connect the Zenon Explorer to http://127.0.0.1:35997
Search for the address z1qqjnwjjpnue8xmmpanz6csze6tcmtzzdtfsww7
Try the Firefox browser if the Zenon Explorer does not want to connect. Google Chrome can throw a mixed content error when connecting to an insecure destination
Open a new Bash Shell and change directory to repos.
Create a clone of the htlc branch of the KingGorrin znn-cli-csharp repository.
git clone -b htlc https://github.com/KingGorrin/znn_cli_csharp.git
Change directory to the znn_cli_csharp directory.
Compile the znn_cli_csharp code
dotnet build --runtime linux-x64 src/ZenonCli/ZenonCli.csproj
Change directory to the binaries directory.
