Raiden webui

Project description

Raiden WebUI

  • To install the dependencies please run.

npm install.

This will install all the dependencies needed by Angular to run the project.

  • We make Cross domain requests to many servers including the Geth Server and Raiden API server we need to proxy our requests hence run the server in this way.

ng serve --proxy-config proxy.config.json --base-href /ui/ --deploy-url /ui/ --delete-output-path false

You can read more about this here

  • If the @angular/cli's ng command isn't available globally, you can find locally installed one at:


  • You can also run serve command with

npm start

  • You can build production-ready UI files with

npm run build:prod

It'll lay in the raiden_webui/ui subfolder.

  • Inside the folder src/assets/config we have a config.development.json. This file contains configuration details about host port etc for the raiden as well as geth because we query both the api servers simultaneously. We need to change this file so that it can pick up details according our local configuration.
    "host": "localhost",
    "port": 5001,
    "version": 1
    "host": "localhost",
    "port": 8545
  • If we run geth and raiden locally these are additional configurations that we need to do on our local machine.

    1. Generate a genesis JSON file containing all the contracts, configurations.

    python tools/ full_genesis > mycustomgenesis.json

    1. Initialise the Geth with the genesis file along with the data directory

    geth --datadir /home/user/privategeth init mycustomgenesis.json

    1. Start geth with this command

    geth --rpccorsdomain "*" --datadir /home/krishna/privategeth --networkid 123 --nodiscover --maxpeers 0 --rpc --mine 1

    1. Start Raiden with the registry-contract-address and the discovery-contract-address generated in the last lines in the mycustomgenesis.json file.
     raiden --eth-rpc-endpoint --registry-contract-address 7d73424a8256c0b2ba245e5d5a3de8820e45f390 --discovery-contract-address 08425d9df219f93d5763c3e85204cb5b4ce33aaa --keystore-path ~/privategeth/keystore --console

Attach an ipc connection with geth

geth attach ipc:/home/krishna/privategeth/geth.ipc

From the IPC console quickly check the ether and transfer Ether for a user.

web3.fromWei(eth.getBalance(eth.accounts[0]), 'ether')

eth.sendTransaction({from:eth.coinbase, to:eth.accounts[1], value: web3.toWei(10, "ether")})

WebUI python package

The WebUI can be build as a python package that can then be consumed by raiden. The package provides a static that points to the location of the WebUI static content root directory.

The WebUI resources path can be imported in the following way:

from raiden_webui import RAIDEN_WEBUI_PATH

You can build the python package by calling:

python build sdist bdist_wheel

This will call npm build:prod to build the static production version of the WebUI so that it can get included in the python package.

If you need to install the package locally to your development virtual environment you can do so by running:

python build install

In case you need to use the debug version of the WebUI with in your virtual environment you can also run:

python compile_webui -D install

This will build the debug version of the WebUI to include in your package.
