Agama Desktop App

Desktop Wallet App

For Developers

You must have node.js and npm installed on your machine.

Check versions: nodejs --version v8.9.4

Easy-DEX-GUI is quite sensitive to the node version. 9.x fails for me, and older versions do as well. Make sure you're on 8.9.x. Installing nvm is probably a good idea, especially if you already have node installed but it is not a compatible version.

Other essential dependencies: sudo apt-get install -y build-essential

  1. Clone Agama Desktop App with EasyDEX-GUI submodule
git clone --recursive --branch dev --single-branch

with this command you git clone agama - but explicitly just the dev branch (therefore --single-branch) which we also use for the release packages. Pull the latest changes in the EasyDEX-GUI subproject next.

cd gui\EasyDEX-GUI
git pull origin dev
  1. Get the binary artfacts into place (linux version)
cd agama

For Mac use ./ Note that we do not use the standard downloadable komodo executables, the version in VerusCoin/VerusCoin has to be used and the src/komodod and src/komodo-cli build outputs have to be manually patched into assets/bin/osx. 3) install the electron packager and prebuilt - note the ugly unsafe-perm and allow-root stuff for the prebuilt electron.

sudo npm install electron-packager -g
npm install electron-prebuilt -g --unsafe-perm=true
  1. get webpack dependencies into place for the react stuff
npm install
  1. If yoi are running in dev mode, get the react back end stuff installed and running
cd react
npm install
cd src
npm start

Brings up the dashboard and loads the react service using localhost:3000. Since that ties this shell up, you'll need to spin up another shell to continue. 6) Go back to the react dir and build things (the EasyDEX-GUI)

cd agama/gui/EasyDEX-GUI/react
npm run build
  1. Get the top level stuff set, after the cd you should be in the root agama dir. We also need electron, again with the nasty souding unsafe-perm and allow-root options, otherwise electron post install steps fail. Similarly, we need to get libgconf and webpack too.
cd ../../..
npm install webpack
npm install
  1. At this point you can test things by running the wallet directly from electron:
npm start

This is a pretty wrapper around electron. I set the environment to production too.

  1. Check that things work. Choose the Verus coin for a fast check. Check Komodo and BTCH at the same time as well. Note that loading Komodo the first time can take 10+ hours the first time to get the chain.

  2. toggle debug options in settings to get som euseful output. You can toggle dev mode, this will switch the Agama wallet to using the dev version of the React service that we just launched at port 3000. Once you set this the Agama wallet will not run without the service manaully started at port 3000 via npm start in the agama/gui/EasyDEX-GUI/react/src directory. To test a production version, turn dev back off, then exit theAgama wallet, then bring the react service down ("q" causes it to quit). Finally restart the Agama app without the dev service and it works normally. Note the View menu Toggle Developers Tools option. Enabling that brings up the browser console which is useful. Variable examination and break points, console for the error log, and the ability to track network interactions are all useful. Code has been squashed so more work is needed to get breakpoints completely useful.

  3. sync komodod and/or asset chains - now that the wallet is running if you choose Komodo native (or eventually Verus) it will load the assect chain. It's taking me 16 hours on a local VM to get it loaded the first time. It only takes 10 or 30 minutes to catch up on startup after that if things are going well.

  4. If you modify code under gui/EasyDEX-GUI then you'll need to go to gui/EasyDEX-GUI/react/src and run npm then npm run build again, then relaunch npm start from the agama dir. Changes to agama/routes just require relaunching npm start from the agama dir. If any dependencies change then you'll need to rerun npm install in the appropriate directory.

  5. Once you have your changes ready and working you can produce the Linux executable image

Important dev notes

Coin info for Verus is stored in ~/.komodo/VRSC under Ubuntu

Coin info for Verus is stored under \Users<username>\AppData\Roaming\Komodo\VRSC for Windows

Coin info is for Verus is stored under ~/Library/Application\ Support/Komodo/VRSC for Mac

In dev mode backend is configured to send/receive messages from/to address. If you open it as http://localhost:3000 sockets server will reject any messages. In non dev mode the service is launched internally and everything operates normally.

Build the Wallet-App

Refer to the original electron-packager repository for more detailed information. Fairly useless advice


Change directory to agama and execute the following command to build the Linux app

cd agama
electron-packager . --platform=linux --arch=x64 --icon=assets/icons/agama_icons/128x128.png --out=build/ --buildVersion=0.11 --ignore=assets/bin/win64 --ignore=assets/bin/osx --overwrite

Change directory to agama and execute the following command to build the OSX app

cd agama
electron-packager . --platform=darwin --arch=x64 --icon=assets/icons/agama_icons/agama_app_icon.icns --out=build/ --buildVersion=0.2 --ignore=assets/bin/win64 --ignore=assets/bin/linux64 --overwrite

Change directory to agama and execute the following command to build the Windows app

cd agama
electron-packager . --platform=win32 --arch=x64 --icon=assets/icons/agama_icons/agama_app_icon.ico --out=build/ --buildVersion=0.2 --ignore=assets/bin/osx --ignore=assets/bin/linux64 --overwrite

# If generating 32bit desktop package
electron-packager . --platform=win32 --arch=ia32 --icon=assets/icons/agama_icons/agama_app_icon.ico --out=build/ --buildVersion=0.3 --ignore=assets/bin/osx --ignore=assets/bin/linux64 --overwrite

change architecture build parameter to --arch=x64 for 64 bit build

Troubleshooting Instructions

Windows DLL issues

On Windows it's noticed agama.exe complains about VCRUNTIME140D.DLL and ucrtbased.dll file.

Please see windeps directory and README file for instructions to install the required DLL files on Windows, and then try again running Agama App.

Optional packages to make rpm and deb distros



refer to ./make-deb.js and ./make-rpm.js
