Information Install Skycoin Windows Wallet
Posted by: skyguy - 12-26-2017, 02:42 PM - Forum: Skycoin - Replies (3)

This tutorial will show you how to install the Windows Skycoin wallet. For the purpose of this tutorial, I installed the 64bit version. Select 32bit if your Windows OS is 32bit. If unsure, right click "My Computer" and look at "System Type" under the System section. 

Download Skycoin wallet

(1) Open a browser to https://skycoin.net and click the "Downloads" button

(2) Select 64bit or 32bit depending on your OS type

(3) Choose to save the download to your "Downloads" folder

[Image: Skycoin_Wallet_Save.jpg]

(4) Navigate to your Downloads folder and open the .zip in your file extractor. I used winrar but any zip software will work fine. Extract the contents directly to your C: drive or choose a custom folder, i.e. C:\Sky

[Image: Skywallet_Extract.jpg]

Create Skycoin wallet

(1) Naviga
te to the skycoin-0-21.1-bin.win-x64 folder and launch the skycoin executable. After launching the wallet, a command window will open and launch a browser window.

Information Configure Skywire Node on Ubuntu Server
Posted by: skyguy - 12-23-2017, 06:35 PM - Forum: Skywire - Replies (35)

Follow the steps below to create a Skywire node on a Ubuntu Server / Desktop

**Skywire is still in testing phase, so don't expect to earn any skycoins or coinhours when your node is operational. This is for educational purposes only 

I personally installed skywire from a Windows Desktop using putty. The same process can be applied using a shell window on the Ubuntu Desktop

Manually Install GO

(1) Launch Putty and connect to your Ubuntu Server. My server's IP is (replace with your server's IP or hostname)

[Image: Launch_Putty.jpg]

(2) From the shell prompt, run the following command to update Ubuntu and install the required linux dependencies. Press Enter when prompted for a Y/N

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade -y
sudo apt-get install -y curl git mercurial make binutils gcc bzr bison libgmp3-dev screen gcc build-essential

(3) Declare version of Go to install

After the update is finished, declare the version of go you want to download / install using the following command. I installed 1.9

cd ~
export GOV=1.9 # golang version. Could be any of the following versions 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 1.4, ..., 1.9

(4) Download and uncompress golang source

curl -sS https://storage.googleapis.com/golang/go$GOV.linux-amd64.tar.gz > go$GOV.linux-amd64.tar.gz
tar xvf go$GOV.linux-amd64.tar.gz
rm go$GOV.linux-amd64.tar.gz

(5) Install go

sudo mv go /usr/local/go
sudo ln -s /usr/local/go/bin/go /usr/local/bin/go
sudo ln -s /usr/local/go/bin/godoc /usr/local/bin/godoc
sudo ln -s /usr/local/go/bin/gofmt /usr/local/bin/gofmt

(6) Create GO Directories

mkdir -p $HOME/go
mkdir -p $HOME/go/bin
mkdir -p $HOME/go/src
mkdir -p $HOME/go/pkg

(7) Setup $GOPATH variable

(i) From your home path (cd ~), edit .bashrc using the vi command

vi .bashrc

(ii) In vi, press shift G, shift $, a, Enter, and paste the following new lines

export GOROOT=/usr/local/go
export GOPATH=$HOME/go
export GOBIN=$GOPATH/bin

(iii) Now press Esc twice, shift colon ( : ), wq, and Enter to save

[Image: write_quit_vi.jpg]

(iv) Reload the Path by running the following command

source ~/.bashrc

GO installation complete

Install Skycoin

(1) Download skycoin from github using the following command

go get github.com/skycoin/skycoin/...

(2) Run Skycoin from the command line

cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/skycoin/skycoin
make run

If installing directly from an Ubuntu desktop, open a browser and enter the following IP and port to see the skycoin wallet


(3) Launch Skycoin

Launch skycoin by running the following command

make run

If successful, you should be able to connect to the wallet from your Ubuntu desktop. Launch a browser window and enter  

[Image: skycoin_linux_wallet.jpg]

Install Skywire

(1) Download skywire using git

cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/skycoin
git clone https://github.com/skycoin/skywire.git

(2) Build binaries for skywire

cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/skycoin/skywire/cmd
go install ./...

(3) Run Skywire

cd $GOPATH/bin
./manager -web-dir ${GOPATH}/src/github.com/skycoin/skywire/static/skywire-manager

At this point, you should have access to the monitor. Open a browser and navigate to http://server_ip:8000

[Image: skywire_monitor.jpg]

The node won't be running at this point. To start a node, enter the following command in a new putty window. It takes +-60 seconds before you will see some activity in the command window. Once there is activity, your node should be up

cd $GOPATH/bin
./node -connect-manager -manager-address :5998 -manager-web :8000 -discovery-address discovery.skycoin.net:5999-034b1cd4ebad163e457fb805b3ba43779958bba49f2c5e1e8b062482904bacdb68  -address :5000 -web-port :6001

[Image: skywire_node_online.jpg]

**New update

I made some scripts to automate starting the manager and node. Download and extract the skywire-system-files.zip attachment below

(1) As the root user, copy skywire-start to /usr/local/sbin directory
(2) Edit skywire-start and replace [your user account name] with your username, i,e tom, david, etc
(3) Copy skywire.service to /etc/systemd/system
(4) Edit skywire.service and replace [your user account name] and [your group] with your username and group 
(5) Enable the skywire service by typing the following command as root

systemctl enable skywire.service

**Once the service has been enabled, skywire will automatically launch (start) at system boot

To test, manually start the skywire service by running the following command

systemctl start skywire

Now navigate to http://server_ip:8000 and you should see the skywire login page

To stop or restart the skywire service, run the following commands. Prefix sudo if you running them from your user account

systemctl stop skywire

systemctl restart skywire

1.skynode_start.sh and 2.skynode_stop.sh can be used separately to start and stop skywire from a terminal window if you don't want to go the systemd route
