Learn how to run the Boba development stack
Note: this is only relevant to developers who wish to work on Boba core services.
For most test uses, it's simpler to use https://goerli.boba.network. Clone the repository, open it, and install nodejs packages with
Then, make sure you have Docker installed and make sure Docker is running. Finally, build and run the entire stack:
$ cd ops
$ BUILD=1 DAEMON=0 ./up_local.sh
Stack spinup can take 15 minutes or more. There are many interdependent services to bring up with two waves of contract deployment and initialisation. Recommended settings - 10 CPUs, 30 to 40 GB of memory. You can either inspect the Docker
Dashboard>Containers/All>Opsfor the progress of the
ops_deployeror you can run this script to wait for the sequencer to be fully up:
If the command returns with no log output, the sequencer is up. Once the sequencer is up, you can inspect the Docker
Dashboard>Containers/All>Opsfor the progress of
ops_boba_deployeror you can run the following script to wait for all the Boba contracts (e.g. the fast message relay system) to be deployed and up:
When the command returns with
Pass: Found L2 Liquidity Pool contract address, the entire Boba stack has come up correctly.
- Running out of space on your Docker, or having other having hard to debug issues? Try running
docker system prune -a --volumesand then rebuild the images.
- To (re)build individual base services:
docker-compose build -- l2geth
- To (re)build individual Boba services:
docker-compose -f "docker-compose.yml" build -- boba_message-relayer-fastNote: First you will have to comment out various dependencies in
To run unit tests for a specific package:
Make sure you are in the
opsfolder and then run
docker-compose run integration_tests
Expect the full test suite to complete in between 30 minutes to two hours depending on your computer hardware.
