SAFE Network Dev Update - June 18, 2020

Thx for the update Maidsafe devs and your hard work.

Pretty neat that we’ve just tested vault from home and now
we’re already seeing some hints of farming :kissing_heart:

Keep hacking super ants and community :stuck_out_tongue:

Worth echoing one more time!

Yes, I have so much respect for the endless capability to throw away something that was huge work and an achievment in its own right, but just not fit for the purpose. I guess that’s an expression of clear vision, incredible motivation and percistense, and uncompromising humbleness in the way you look at your own work. It’s an priviledge and inspiration to just follow it from the sidelines.

Thank you once again!

Hey @JimCollinson don’t want to push or spoil any surprises but looking at the Feature Tracker it shows vault setup all ticked and green. Haven’t seen any vault UI yet but does that we will in the near future?

You may have seen a snifter of Vaults UI in the invite/onboarding process videos IIRC, but yeah the MVE essentials area most entirely done. I’m documenting it all and had hoped to get it out for yesterday’s dev update, but some other vital stuff meant it didn’t quite make it out. Stay tuned though!

I thought PARSEC was one of the big breakthroughs. Can someone provide some further insight into this change or point me in the right direction if the topic has been addressed a bit more thoroughly? What was wrong with PARSEC and why are they changing? What are they changing to and how does this help the project? I’m curious and would like to know more - thanks in advance.

See the last point here, friend:

PARSEC was resource intensive so it was removed for a more efficient method. Much was learned with the addition of PARSEC however in the end it was not up to the task. The past few Dev updates have great information and details on how and why it was removed and what it was replaced with.

PARSEC was a mountain we had to climb to survey the possible easier and faster routes in the valleys below.
Until we climbed that mountain, we could not see the easier ways forward.

Replies are much appreciated - I will check out the other updates. I can understand how that has evolved over the course of the project. Thanks.

It still is a big breakthrough, but the smarty-pants people found easier and more efficient ways of doing the same things. Also PARSEC will still be used elsewhere. Building great software is an organic process, or like the image of the Mandelbrot Set, it infinitely evolves, and branches out, yet remains true to its core, its central purpose.

I tested the scripts on a raspberry pi4 with raspbian buster , it simply works. :+1:

I just had to make a “rustup update” to get rid of a cargo error due to my cargo being slightly outdated.

These scripts make it really easy to install the safe cli and vault from source on the raspberry, without headache. Thank you for it !

Great work @nice. Thanks for testing them out. I’ve added Raspbery Pi 4 and Debian 10.04 Buster to the README and also how to update rust if the Cargo lock file error happens. See SAFE Network farming on github.

I have a friend sending me a raspberry pi 3b+ (I think, something like that) that he doesn’t use anymore, and this is going to be my first project after I figure out what it is. Fair play to you on doing this @happybeing, very cool

I have a Pi4 running as a Pi-hole. I’m going to transfer these functions to my old fileserver box and explore @happybeings scripts on the Pi4. I’m searching on Ebay for a used Pi2 or 3 cos either of them is up to the job of running as a Pi-hole.
Also just found out about the Banana Pi AIUI its like a PI but with a SATA port.

EDIT: I just ordered one of these http://wiki.banana-pi.org/Banana_Pi_BPI-M1
