CLI for managing dpos delegates

pip install dpos-deputy==0.0.42



Howdy delegate! You have just been deputized!


Install python 3.6

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:deadsnakes/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install python3.6-dev

sudo python3.6
sudo pip3.6 install virtualenv

If you get an error related to hidapi or gcc, try this:

sudo apt-get install gcc
sudo apt install libudev-dev libusb-1.0-0-dev

Create a virtual environment (replace myvirtualenv with whatever seems appriopriate, for example deputy)

virtualenv myvirtualenv -p python3.6

Activate the virtualenv.

source myvirtualenv/bin/activate
pip install dpos-deputy

Deputy requires running ark-node instances/other network nodes like Kapu or Persona to function.

Initial setup

Start out by enabling autocompletion for an easier time.

deputy enable_autocomplete


Use flags to figure out what the commands do.

deputy --help

Starting out

Start out by setting your configurations for further use.

deputy set_config --help

Example command

Setting up your configuration:

deputy -p mypassword set_config

This will lead you through a series of prompts to store persistent configurations. If you don't use a password, deputy will default to default_password for encryption purposes.
