Hosting Web Wallet

The Qwertycoin web wallet does everything client-side to give the best privacy to users. The API servers are currently only used to optimize the communication with the daemon and compress the blockchain.

Install prerequisites

  • You will need to install node.js and NPM (node's package manager) to compile the web wallet. For Linux (Ubuntu) enter the code below:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nodejs
sudo apt-get install npm

Compilation

  • Clone the repository:

git clone https://github.com/qwertycoin-org/webwallet-js.git
  • Enter webwallet-js and run the following commands:

npm install
nodejs ./node_modules/typescript/bin/tsc --project tsconfig.json
nodejs build.js

The first line installs the required dependancies (typescript) and the second compiles the typescript code.

Deployment

You can host the web wallet using Apache or Nginx. For this tutorial I will be using Apache.

  • Install Apache

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install apache2
sudo ufw allow 'Apache Full'
  • Copy everything in the src directory to the html directory.

sudo cp -rf api.html config.ts lib/ service-worker-raw.js api.js d/ manifest.json service-worker-raw.ts api.ts index.html model/ translations/ assets/ index.js pages/ utils/ config.js index.ts providers/ workers/ /var/www/html

Edit configuration

You will have to edit the file src/config.ts in order to change the API endpoint (point it to your daemon). Once that is complete you should now see the web wallet at your address like so:
