Thank you so much! This is great, will be checking it out soon.
Then I cd to the CLI folder and run
which fails with…

Let me know if you need the complete log
This is beyond me, but can you try:
rm -rf node_modules npm install
clearing node_modules and reinstalling took me no further forward
willie@sputnik:~/projects/safe/safe-cli-boilerplate$ python --version
Should I have Python 3?
No, python 2 is good.
What versions of NPM and NodeJS are you using? I believe MaidSafe requires Node version 8.
$ node --version # e.g. v8.11.1 $ npm --version # e.g. 5.6.0
SAFE dev tools version report
What is the value of $NODE_ENV set to?
rustc 1.25.0 (84203cac6 2018-03-25)
cargo 0.26.0 (41480f5cc 2018-02-26)
general system status
Linux sputnik 4.15.0-23-generic #25-Ubuntu SMP Wed May 23 18:02:16 UTC 2018 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
I’ll 'av a word…
Working nicely on Windows without a glitch.
Peruse: head of Dev branch, packaged
NODE_ENV=devpermanently set on system
- yarn build-mock
- Start Peruse, login
./dist/mock/safecmd.exe, Peruse authorisation requests pops up, I approve, and terminal receives auth URI.
This is great. Love it.
@southside I’ll spin up a Linux VM and see if I can get it to break.
Be sure to
Are you using
nvm to manage NodeJS versions?
Install 8.9.4, or just
nvm install 8 to have it choose the latest of 8.x.x.
Success on Ubuntu Linux with the same steps and same versions.
I was however able to break the install process by trying with NodeJS
Thanks @hunterlester, this is great
Please can you try running the resulting command several times in succession, and check if the second part of the console output (the interaction with SAFE) is always there or sometimes missing.
I think this is going to be quite a useful addition and am excited to see what people do with it. I also have a plan for it of course
And there are several improvements we could make. What would be really useful is a separate Authenticator library so that this and other projects could auth without the browser (by using stored credentials, this would allow ‘headless’ SAFE apps). I have no plans to do that myself though.
Announced on the main forum:
Most useful would be the simplest example app - one that can download a file that exists on the network.
This example looks complicated by requiring writeable authorisation and then creating mutable data in the user’s account.
I’d love to see the form of the most trivial app, which
- perhaps necessarily safeApp.bootstrap
- download a file known to exist, for example safe://hello/index.html
Then ambitions for bug fixing more complexity would become simpler.
tldr; Can the CLI do what the browser can do?
To do this you’d need to create a public name, service and so on which complicate things and go further. The intention here is just to demonstrate it can access the SAFE API. Going further makes assumptions about what someone wants to do, and on the live network (eventually) I don’t think creating a random public ID on somebody’s account would be a good idea.
So on balance, I don’t this is a role for the boilerplate. I think somebody could though create a trivial example app from it, such as to create a public ID and simple website, or file upload and download. I think that’s a good idea and hopefully somebody will see that as a nice little project. For now though I am going to try and use it for real.
Thanks for the feedback and suggestion. I will keep it in mind.
On the mock perhaps… but on prod, exactly the opposite.
safe://hello/index.html exists… challenge is to fetch it.
Another option would be to provide a tutorial which shows how to do this with SAFE CLI Boilerplate. It’s not a priority for me though - I took time out to put the boilerplate out there for others but am now getting back to why I made this. So feel free if it appeals to you.
Easier said that done; I would if I could; etc.
Yaaay - got it working
Problem was my node version was too new. 9.11.1
nvm install 8 nvm use 8
and it all just worked…
Quick Setup Completed New file is created and saved to the network successfully The file has been opened and read The content of the file which has been read: Hello Safe World
That went flawlessly on fedora 28 with node v8.11.2 and npm 5.6.0.
On to the next steps.
If you have time, please can you both run the compiled command about five or so times to see if the output (quoted here by @nice) is sometimes missing.
If you do this please post results here along with your operating system and if known, OS version.
