This page documents some of the tools that are helpful when developing or testing against a local or testnet API node.
If you are creating test cases, the FIO core team will provide you with a pre-configured API node that can be used for local testing. If more control over the local environment is needed, please read the instructions on installing a personal locl dev environment.
If you are doing development on the
fio.contracts repositories, you will need to install a local development environment to validate your code before merging into a FIO repository.
- fiowatch is a tool for monitoring transactions as the go across they wire. It needs access to both the P2P and the API ports.
- cryptonym is an interactive contract browsing tool that can be used to examine table data and submit transactions to local and testnet API nodes.
