Get Started With using the Filecoin-flavored Ganache CLI

Filecoin-flavored Ganache CLI requires NodeJS version 12.13.0 or later.

You can check your current version by running:

node --version
  1. Install the ganache package globally with the filecoin tag (note that we're not installing the old ganache-cli package)
    npm install --global [email protected]
  2. Install the @ganache/filecoin globally
    npm install --global @ganache/filecoin

The CLI can be easily ran by providing the filecoin argument to the ganache executable.

ganache filecoin

You should presented with a screen of all of the prefunded addresses and their private keys:
