Scripts:

The following are a list of scripts from the bios boot sequence tutorial located here. The PURBLIC_KEY_HERE and PRIVATE_KEY_HERE fields must be updated in the genesis_start.sh, start.sh, and hard_replay.sh scripts.

To start the chain from genesis, run the genesis_start.sh file, then if you need to stop the chain, run stop.sh, if you need to start again, run start.sh. If you get a dirty flag, run hard_replay.sh.

If you need to wipe everything, run stop.sh, clean.sh, genesis_start.sh.

If you need to install eosio, see the eosio node section of the docs.

mkdir biosboot
touch genesis.json
nano genesis.json
mkdir genesis
cd genesis
mkdir YOUR_BP_NAME_HERE
cd YOUR_BP_NAME_HERE
touch genesis_start.sh
nano genesis_start.sh
chmod 755 genesis_start.sh
