Running a Local Node with Docker

Running Allfeat within a Docker container simplifies the setup and ensures a consistent environment across all platforms. Follow these steps to run your local Allfeat node using Docker.


Ensure Docker is installed and running on your system. If you haven't installed Docker yet, please refer to the Installing Allfeat with Docker section.

Running the Allfeat Node

After building the Allfeat Docker image, you can start your local node with the following command:

docker run -p 9944:9944 -p 9933:9933 -p 30333:30333 allfeat

This command runs the Allfeat node inside a Docker container and exposes the necessary ports for P2P networking and JSON-RPC interfaces.

Verifying the Node is Running

To verify that your Allfeat node is running inside Docker, you can use the following command:

docker ps

You should see your Allfeat container listed among the running containers.

Interacting with the Node

You can interact with your Allfeat node using the JSON-RPC interface or by connecting to it using a substrate frontend template. Make sure to adjust the port forwarding settings in the Docker run command if you modify the default ports in the Allfeat node configuration.

Stopping the Node

To stop your Allfeat node running inside Docker, use the Docker stop command followed by the container ID or name:

docker stop <container_id_or_name>

Congratulations! You have successfully run an Allfeat node locally using Docker. This setup allows you to develop and test your DApps or smart contracts in an environment that closely mimics a live blockchain network.

For more advanced Docker configurations and options, refer to the official Docker documentation.
