Minimal Fabric Development Environment
Sometimes I quickly want to try an idea I, but do I really need to fire up 10+ docker containers?
No, I don’t. We’ve adapted the fabric (byfn) setup script to include only the absolut minimum:
- A single node
- A single orderer (solo mode)
- A single certificate authority (CA)
Note: This will work on MacOS and most Linux.
- Docker & Docker Compose
1. Get the code
git clone https://github.com/4eyes/hyperledger-fabric-basic-network.git
2. Download the docker images
$ cd hyperledger-fabric-basic-network $ ./network.sh -m download
3. Start the network
$ ./network.sh -m up
4. Check the docker logs
$ docker logs peer0.org1.fabric.basic.network.com
The output should look like this:
connect -> DEBU 32e Connected to orderer.fabric.basic.network.com:7050 connect -> DEBU 32f Establishing gRPC stream with orderer.fabric.basic.network.com:7050 ... afterConnect -> DEBU 330 Entering RequestBlocks -> DEBU 331 Starting deliver with block  for channel fabricchannel afterConnect -> DEBU 332 Exiting
See the README on github for more details about configuration or the removal of the test network.
