I have set up the whole development environment, I program on my computer using Windows.
I have a VPS (Linux) with a running node, I have the contract runner configured.
Now the problem is, I want to program and compile on my Windows computer and then upload it to my node. The ContractManagerPlugin plugin only allows me to deploy to my local node (Windows).
How can I do it?
I cannot find this information in the documentation.
Thanks for your help!!!
ContractManager, which is wrapped by the
ContractManagerPlugin, only publishes the contract on the blockchain. For that it needs a running node and by default it uses a local node (this can be controlled by the properties
contract.manager.serverAddress, etc.). But this is only the node which the
ContractManager will use to do its work, not where the contract will be executed.
The contract is executed on a node which has a
ContractRunner configured to execute for the account for which the contract was uploaded. This configuration should be done on the Linux VPS in your case. Read here for more details: Lightweight Contracts
So, the answer to your question is: your
ContractRunner node should automatically pickup any contracts uploaded for the account (if it is configured correctly) after they are uploaded on the blockchain by the
ContractManager (which can safely run on your local Win computer).
Thank you for your help.
In my case (Windows), to be more specific:
- Access your path where Ardor is installed (C:/Users/user/Documents/Ardor).
- Go to the /conf folder
- Open the "nxt-default.properties" file
- Search for "#### CONTRACT MANAGER ####".
- Configure IP, HTTPS (if needed) and the secret phrase.
- Compile and run with ContractManagerPlugin
This should do the trick!
Thank you very much for the hints!
Only one correction: don't edit
nxt-default.properties directly. Create a separate
nxt.properties file only with your changes. See here Nxt-default properties configuration file - ArdorDocs
You're right, much better! I forgot
