  3. Run tests

Supported Hyperledger Fabric versions

This library has only been tested against the v1.1.0 version of Hyperledger.

API

createFabricClient

Utility function to create an instance of a fabric client.

const {createFabricClient} = require('@kunstmaan/hyperledger-fabric-client-utils');

/**
 * The hfc-key-story path
 * Contains public / private keys of the users
 */ 
const keyStorePath = './node_modules/@kunstmaan/hyperledger-fabric-chaincode-dev-setup/dev-network/generated/hfc-key-store';
const fabricClient = await createFabricClient(keyStorePath);

baseService

A wrapper around the query and invoke logic. Allows you to easily setup a service with default values for a peer, orderer and channel id.

const {baseService} = require('@kunstmaan/hyperledger-fabric-client-utils');

const keyStorePath = './node_modules/@kunstmaan/hyperledger-fabric-chaincode-dev-setup/dev-network/generated/hfc-key-store';

const service = baseService(
    keyStorePath,

registerChaincodeEventListener

Run tests

  1. Make sure you have installed Docker and Python
  2. Make sure you have added the path of the repo to the Docker file sharing preferences
  3. Run npm install
  4. Run npm run start-dev-network and wait for all chaincode to be instantiated
  5. Open a new terminal and run npm test (to run in watch mode use npm run test-watch)

If you find any bugs or have a feature request, please open an issue on github!
