Intro to Hyperledger
In this module, we'll explore where Hyperledger came from, and how it has evolved over time.
The best way to understand how Hyperledger works is to set up your own node.
Example: Hyperledger for Car Dealerships
It's not the size of your node that matters - it's how you use it.
Deploying your First Network
Download the Example Files
Starting from an appropriate directory,
curl -sSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/hyperledger/fabric/master/scripts/bootstrap.sh | bash -s 1.2.0
Deploy the Example
This folder contains some example launch scripts:
BYFN.sh – Build Your First Network
Let’s try running it:
Now that we have the network up and running, let’s see what files were generated.
Note: If the dependency installs aren’t set properly then you’ll need to spin down the network, verify all dependencies, and then spin up the network again
There are a few commands available from the network launch script.
./byfn.sh up // Turns on the network
./byfn.sh down // Shuts down the network
./byfn.sh generate // Generates a new network
Once the install is complete, you’ll see a nice ascii art printout of the word END, which means everything worked!
