3-1: Create config.json

The Pocket CLI uses a conf file to store configuration details for the Pocket Core software. By default the config file is located at ~/.pocket/config/config.json. In this document we'll look at how to create a new config file.

This process requires that you have jq installed. To install jq run the following command:

sudo apt install jq -y

To create a new config file, do the following:

  1. Create a default config.json file, add the seeds, set port 8081 to 8082, and increase the RPC timeout to 15000

    echo $(pocket util print-configs) | jq '.tendermint_config.P2P.Seeds = "03b74fa3c68356bb40d58ecc10129479b159a145@seed1.mainnet.pokt.network:20656,64c91701ea98440bc3674fdb9a99311461cdfd6f@seed2.mainnet.pokt.network:21656,0057ee693f3ce332c4ffcb499ede024c586ae37b@seed3.mainnet.pokt.network:22856,9fd99b89947c6af57cd0269ad01ecb99960177cd@seed4.mainnet.pokt.network:23856,1243026603e9073507a3157bc4de99da74a078fc@seed5.mainnet.pokt.network:24856,6282b55feaff460bb35820363f1eb26237cf5ac3@seed6.mainnet.pokt.network:25856,3640ee055889befbc912dd7d3ed27d6791139395@seed7.mainnet.pokt.network:26856,1951cded4489bf51af56f3dbdd6df55c1a952b1a@seed8.mainnet.pokt.network:27856,a5f4a4cd88db9fd5def1574a0bffef3c6f354a76@seed9.mainnet.pokt.network:28856,d4039bd71d48def9f9f61f670c098b8956e52a08@seed10.mainnet.pokt.network:29856,5c133f07ed296bb9e21e3e42d5f26e0f7d2b2832@poktseed100.chainflow.io:26656"' | jq '.pocket_config.rpc_timeout = 15000' | jq '.pocket_config.rpc_port = "8082"' | jq '.pocket_config.remote_cli_url = "http://localhost:8082"' | jq . > ~/.pocket/config/config.json
  2. Verify the config.json file

    cat ~/.pocket/config/config.json
