1.1.0-beta.1 • Public • Published

Intended Audience

This tool is meant for developers only -- it is meant to be used for testing and debugging Blockstack apps in ways that the Browser does not yet support. It is not safe to use this tool for day-to-day tasks, since many commands operate on unencrypted private keys. Everyone is encouraged to use the Blockstack Browser whenever possible.

Installation

Requirements

Install the CLI

$ npm install -g https://github.com/blockstack/cli-blockstack

This should install blockstack-cli to your $PATH.

Troubleshooting

If running into EACCES permissions errors:

How to Use

How to Contribute

Project Scope

The following featuers are considered in-scope for this tool:

  • Generating and broadcasting all supported types of Blockstack transactions
  • Loading, storing, and listing data in Gaia hubs
  • Generating owner, payment and application keys from a seed phrase
  • Querying Blockstack Core nodes
  • Implementing a minimum viable authentication flow

Everything else is out of scope. Specifically, the following will not be added to this tool:

  • Anything that requires persistent disk state -- this includes software wallets, configuration files, and so on
  • Anything that involves administrating other Blockstack services
  • Features specific to a particular Blockstack app
  • Any sort of plugin or extension system
