Using snapshots

The Aragen package published to NPM contains a ganache snapshot that can be used to quickly start a chain with the entire Aragon system ready.

By default it has set up:

  • ENS: 0x5f6f7e8cc7346a11ca2def8f827b7a0b612c56a1
  • DAO_FACTORY: 0x5d94e3e7aec542ab0f9129b9a7badeb5b3ca0f77
  • MINIME_FACTORY: 0xd526b7aba39cccf76422835e7fd5327b98ad73c9
  • FIFResolvingRegistrar: 0xf1f8aac64036cdd399886b1c157b7e3b361093f3
  • APM: ens.addr('aragonpm.eth')
  • AragonID: ens.owner('aragonid.eth')
  • Aragon apps: As APM repos, e.g. apm.getLatest('voting.aragonpm.eth')
  • Templates: As APM repos, e.g. apm.getLatest('democracy-template.aragonpm.eth')

To use directly with ganache-cli:

npm install @aragon/aragen
npx aragen start

If you wish to access from code, for example to run ganache-core directly:

const aragonSnapshot = path.resolve(


If you need to trigger the CI so a new snapshot is generated and publish to NPM, you need to tag the release by bumping the NPM version and commit to master.

npm version [major, minor, patch]
