How to run a node¶
To run a galacteek node, all you need is a Linux system with docker.
By running a node you can help with the testing of the pronto network. To get an idea of how pronto works, checkout this page.
To pull the image and run a node in a Docker container, use the following commands (pimp-my-dweb image):
mkdir $HOME/galacteek-docker sudo docker pull registry.gitlab.com/galacteek/galacteek:pimp-my-dweb-latest-x11vnc sudo docker run -p 5900:5900 -v $HOME/galacteek-docker:/home/galacteek -t registry.gitlab.com/galacteek/galacteek:pimp-my-dweb-latest-x11vnc
To see all the available docker images, checkout the container registry.
In this example, the data and graphs created by galacteek will be persisted in the $HOME/galacteek-docker directory.
The password to access the VNC service is printed to the console when starting the container. Find the IP address of your container with:
docker inspect <container-id>|grep IPAddress
You can now use any VNC client to access the node's UI (TCP port 5900)
Docker environment variables¶
Use the XVFB_WHD env var to set a different screen resolution for the VNC service. The default value is 1024x768x24.
sudo docker run -p 5900:5900 -v $HOME/galacteek-docker:/home/galacteek -e XVFB_WHD="1280x1024x24" -t registry.gitlab.com/galacteek/galacteek:pimp-my-dweb-latest-x11vnc
