Build all native code:

cargo build


Normal way

You can start a development chain with:

cargo run -- --dev

Detailed logs may be shown by running the node with the following environment variables set: RUST_LOG=debug RUST_BACKTRACE=1 cargo run -- --dev.

If you want to see the multi-node consensus algorithm in action locally, then you can create a local testnet with two validator nodes for Alice and Bob, who are the initial authorities of the genesis chain that have been endowed with testnet units. Give each node a name and expose them so they are listed on the Polkadot telemetry site. You'll need two terminal windows open.

We'll start Alice's bifrost node first on default TCP port 30333 with her chain database stored locally at /tmp/alice. The bootnode ID of her node is 12D3KooWEyoppNCUx8Yx66oV9fJnriXwCcXwDDUA2kj6vnc6iDEp, which is generated from the --node-key value that we specify below:

cargo run -- \
--base-path /tmp/alice \
--chain=dev \
--alice \
--port 30333 \
--node-key 0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001 \
--telemetry-url 'wss:// 0' \

In the second terminal, we'll start Bob's bifrost node on a different TCP port of 30334, and with his chain database stored locally at /tmp/bob. We'll specify a value for the --bootnodes option that will connect his node to Alice's bootnode ID on TCP port 30333:

cargo run -- \
--base-path /tmp/bob \
--bootnodes /ip4/ \
--chain=dev \
--bob \
--port 30334 \
--telemetry-url 'wss:// 0' \

Additional CLI usage options are available and may be shown by running cargo run -- --help.

Quick way

You can use docker to run Bifrost chain, and you don't need to install rust.

If docker isn't installed on your machine, just check here to install it: Docker Installation.

After installation, pull the docker image by the following command:

docker pull bifrostnetwork/bifrost:v0.4.0

Start a single chain

Run the chain in quick way:

docker run -p 9944:9944 bifrostnetwork/bifrost:v0.4.0 --unsafe-ws-external --ws-port 9944 --dev

Start multi-nodes

Start alice node.

docker run -p 9944:9944 --name=alice bifrostnetwork/bifrost:v0.4.0 --base-path /tmp/alice \
--unsafe-ws-external \
--ws-port 9944 \
--chain=dev \
--alice \
--node-key 0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001 \
--telemetry-url 'wss:// 0' \

Start bob node.

docker run -p 9933:9933 --name=bob bifrostnetwork/bifrost:v0.4.0 --base-path /tmp/bob \
--bootnodes /ip4/ \
--chain=dev \
--unsafe-ws-external \
--ws-port 9933 \
--bob \
--port 30334 \
--telemetry-url 'wss:// 0' \

Ensure both nodes are synchronizing each other.
