The Cocol Project has the goal to lower the entry barrier for developers interested in building blockchains and dApps. There is still a long way to go and your help is needed.
After setting up Crystal you can clone the Cocol repository and install the dependencies:
> git clone https://github.com/cocol-project/cocol.git > cd cocol > shards install
Make your changes to the code-base and than build Cocol
./cocol offers the following CLI options
Options: -p --port The port your Cocol node is going to run on -m --master Making this node a master (there can only be one) --max-connections Setting the max-connections for peers. --miner Making this node a miner --update Triggering an update on launch (will catch up with the current height)
There is also a script that starts multiple nodes and the master for you
> ./script/start.sh 66 5
First option is the amount of nodes and the second amount of miner.
It will start the master node with the port
3000 and every other node with
3000 + n, while all miner have port
4000 + n
Now go ahead and open the explorer in a browser:
> open ./explorer/index.html
You should see 66 nodes and a miner (red border)
Each one of the nodes has a REST API on the corresponding port (e.g.
Start creating live fake transactions and watch the network come alive

Cocol is in a very early stage. Expect changes, bugs and messy code. Test coverage sucks atm.
