## Known Issues
steemtools depends on Piston, and Piston depends on scrypt.
If you get an error like this during installation:
```
fatal error: openssl/aes.h: No such file or directory

```

You can fix this by installing `libssl-dev`:
```
sudo apt-get install libssl-dev
```

------------

## Install a local node (optional)
>Having a local node is highly recommended for blockchain parsing, or applications that need low latency/high reliability.

Pull the docker images:
```
docker pull teego/steem-wallet
docker pull teego/steem-blockchain
```

Initiate the blockchain image:
```
docker create --name steem-blockchain teego/steem-blockchain /bin/true
```

Run our node:
```
docker run --name steem-node --rm -it --volumes-from steem-blockchain -v ~/steem/node.config.ini:/witness_node_data_dir/config.ini -p 8090:8090 teego/steem-wallet
```
*Note: You can find the `node.config.ini` in `steemtools/sample`.*

You can also pass custom parameters by appending this to the previous command:
```
/usr/local/bin/steemd --rpc-endpoint = 0.0.0.0:8090 --replay
```


Get into CLI Wallet (optional):
```
docker exec -it steem-wallet /usr/local/bin/cli_wallet
```
