Clone the repo

git clone

Configure the environment

cd ilp-kit
npm install
npm run configure

Setup the ledger

cd ledger
npm install

Setup the api

cd ../api
npm install

Setup the client

cd ../client
cp public/config.example.js public/config.js
npm install

Edit your hosts file (/private/etc/hosts on OSX). Add this line.

Port forwarding (simple)

NOTE: Current webfinger implementation will not work if the public ports 443 and 80 don't point to the development server.

cd webserver
npm run start-dev

Port forwarding (Virtual hosts)

If you would like to set up two ILP Kits on the same host, it's a good idea to use nginx or apache for the virtual host handling.

In most cases it makes sense to expose the wallet through 443 (or 80) port, in which case you need to setup a port forwarding that will forward API_PORT requests to API_PUBLIC_PORT (443 or 80). Note that the port forwarding should work for both http(s) and websocket connections.

Below are the guides to setting up 2 virtual hosts for nginx and apache - nginx - Apache

Note: You can use self signed certificates.


There are 3 processes that need to be run. Ledger, Api and the Client.

cd ledger
npm run start
cd api
npm run start
cd client
npm run start

Run the integration tests with Docker

We have a docker image which is useful for running the integration tests. The following command (when run from the ilp-kit repo root) mounts your code into the container (in its currenct state, so changes made inside the container will be available for committing them after you exit) and lets you run the integration tests inside a container:

mv node_modules node_modules-host
docker pull michielbdejong/five-bells-integration-test # check for updates
docker run -it -v `pwd`:/app/integration-test/ilp-kit michielbdejong/five-bells-integration-test /bin/bash

Once you're inside the container (unless your host system also runs ubuntu), rebuild the dependencies:

$ cd integration-test/ilp-kit
$ ls
$ npm install
$ npm rebuild node-sass && npm run build # this postinstall hook is skipped when npm install is run as root
$ cd /app ; ls # /app contains
$ ls integration-test/ilp-kit # this is mounted from `pwd` by the `docker run` command above
$ ls integration-test/node_modules # master branch of various modules from when this Dockerfile was last built

Now, you can run a test suite:

$ src/bin/integration test index

Or run multiple:

$ killall node # in case earlier suite runs didn't stop properly
$ src/bin/integration test connector_first ilp-kit

Or run all integration test suites:

$ killall node # in case earlier suite runs didn't stop properly
$ src/bin/integration test

Using Redux DevTools

In development, Redux Devtools are enabled by default. You can toggle visibility and move the dock around using the following keyboard shortcuts:


ILP Kit has an integration with Sentry. so if you want to track errors all you have to do is add some environment variables to the env file.
