SAFE Network Dev Update - April 9, 2020

I don’t think this has been mentioned, but fleming branch has been merged into master branch in safe_vault repository on GitHub. This means that an important step has been finalized.

That looks like attempt to download safe-network-app on a mobile?.. which is a for desktop download…did you intend the Authenticator perhaps or hoped for a mobile snapp that maybe doesn’t exist yet.

Doh!
My brain is seriously mince today. I was up too late last night and I have suffered for it all day. I just can’t pull all-night sessions like I used to…

Im going to download it on the laptop and get to my kip - thanks

EDIT - SNApp looks good here

If anyone is bored - go to safe://vue-shop and leave a review on the socks so I have some data to format nicely tomorrow - Ta!

I am using latest safe_vault and latest safe-api compiled from source to play with a local network and I came across 2 problems uncovered by the following operations:

  • Create genesis vault on port 5483

  • Create a key with test coins

  • Create 6 additional local vaults on random ports (to reach 7 elders default limit)

  • Try to create an account paid by the key with command: RUST_LOG=trace ./safe keys create --preload 0.000002 --pay-with “…” --output json`

The output is sometimes a success:

...

First problem is that the key balance has not been duplicated to other vaults. Only the genesis vault is able to finalize the transaction successfully. The other vaults return NoSuchBalance error.

Second problem is that there isn’t any vote to decide of the outcome of the operation: Success of command depends on which node sends the information last. If the genesis vault is last, then the operation is successul (as shown by json result). But if another vault is last then the operation fails.

I don’t know if these problems are bugs or missing features and I would like to have a status on them.

Note: The same problems also happen for other data structure like files and file containers.

What commands are you using for steps 1 and 3?

  • to create genesis vault: ./safe_vault --ip 192.168.1.68 -p 5483 -f -vv -r ~/.local/share/safe_vault/root_dir_00 where 192.168.1.68 is my local IP address.

  • to create additional vaults: ./safe_vault --ip 192.168.1.68 -h '["192.168.1.68:5483"]' -vv -r ~/.local/share/safe_vault/root_dir_NN where NN stands for the vault number (from 01 to 06)

Just guessing here, but sounds related to PARSEC being removed from the vault layer.

Just FYI, new version of CLI (v0.12.0) and safe-authd (v0.0.8) are available now, you can use safe update and safe auth update to update them.

Windows users: please note this version of safe-authd doesn’t require admin permissions to start on Windows, it doesn’t even need to be installed as a Windows Service. Thus before updating and running new safe-authd version, please first uninstall service of old version of safe-authd on Windows using old CLI <= v0.11.0: with admin perms safe auth stop and safe auth uninstall.

One nice new feature to play with is the files get subcommand: https://github.com/maidsafe/safe-api/tree/master/safe-cli#files-get

To add to that. YMMV with latest SNAPP on windows. Previous it tried to start w/ admin privileges, which it doesn’t need to now, but will need to be updated to reflect that.

Hmm safe files get isn’t working for me.

safe dog safe://hbwybodihz5ibdqxoff88cw71w9a8amhagtz3x4wechabafgn8735okxfx

confirms the file exists but

safe files get safe://hbwybodihz5ibdqxoff88cw71w9a8amhagtz3x4wechabafgn8735okxfx gives an error (also if ‘.’ is added as the destination directory).

Can you provide a full test case please, including the files put command used. ( Can you reproduce it, with a new safe files putsafe files get sequence? )

also, does safe files ls or safe files tree work with it?

Nope - those don’t work (edit: maybe cos I tried on the file not the container) . I’ll try uploading a file from fresh.

Edit: still not working
