Getting Started

The instruction down below describes the installation of the SingularityNET CLI. Please check our full Documentation.


You should have Python>=3.10 with pip installed.

Additionally, you should make sure that you have the following packages in your system:

  • libudev
  • libusb 1.0

If you use Ubuntu (or any Linux distribution with APT support) you could run the following:

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

Install snet-cli using pip

$ pip3 install snet.cli

Enabling commands autocompletion

If you want to enable the autocompletion of commands, you should install the

  • python-argcomplete

On ubuntu (or any Linux distribution with APT support), you could run the following

sudo apt install python3-argcomplete

After the package is installed, activate autocomplete

for all python commands (which includes snet commands as well)
sudo activate-global-python-argcomplete3

Note: Changes will not take effect until shell is restarted.

only for snet commands, then you should run the following
echo 'eval "$(register-python-argcomplete3 snet)"' >> ~/.bashrc


source ~/.bashrc

Example service call via the CLI

We will use the Sepolia testnet for this example:

snet network sepolia

Create the identity:

snet identity create example_identity key

and enter your private key when asked.
you can pass the private key directly:

snet identity create --private-key "a7638fd785fdb5cf13df0a1d7b5584cc20d4e8526403f0df105eedf23728f538" test key

You can also use other identity options. See documentation.
You can check your balance using the

snet account balance

Deposit 70 tokens:

 snet account deposit 70

Press y to confirm.
You can check your balance again to ensure that the transaction was successfull.
Before making a call we need to open the payment channel. In this example we will use the organization with id= 26072b8b6a0e448180f8c0e702ab6d2f and group_name= default_group. We will transfer there 70 tokens for 4 weeks:

 snet channel open-init 26072b8b6a0e448180f8c0e702ab6d2f default_group 70 +4weeks

And now we can call the "Exampleservice" service:

 snet client call 26072b8b6a0e448180f8c0e702ab6d2f Exampleservice default_group add '{"a":10,"b":32}'

Press 'Y' to confirm and get service`s response:

value: 42
