Launch the Sample App

Installation Procedure

Before we start, you’ll want to make sure the first network example is down. Be sure to run this command from the first-network directory.

./byfn.sh down


Switch to the example directory:

cd ../fabcar/


Let’s clean up with docker quickly:

docker rm -f $(docker ps -aq)
docker network prune
docker rmi dev-peer0.org1.example.com-fabcar-1.0-5c906e402ed29f20260ae42283216aa75549c571e2e380f3615826365d8269ba

This quickly clears the old image and prunes the network. This step is important when testing multiple docker apps to avoid any overlap or interference. (More on this here.)


Now that we have everything set up on the Hyperledger end, we can install our node.js client:

npm install
