Configuring wasp-cli

Step-by-step instructions on how to use wasp-cli to interact with Wasp nodes on the Hornet network.

Download wasp-cli

Download the latest wasp-cli binary from the repo relases page. (For ease of use, it is recommend to add wasp-cli to your system PATH).


You can create a basic default configuration by running:

wasp-cli init 

This command will create a configuration file named wasp-cli.json in the current directory.

After this, you will need to tell the wasp-cli the location of the Hornet node and the committee of Wasp nodes:

wasp-cli set l1.apiaddress http://localhost:14265
# the faucet only exists for test networks
wasp-cli set l1.faucetaddress http://localhost:8091

# You can add as many nodes as you'd like
wasp-cli wasp add wasp-0
wasp-cli wasp add wasp-1

If you configure the Wasp node to use JWT authentication, you will need to log in after you save the configuration.
