Solidity and Truffle Tips and Tricks - Ganache on Ubuntu

Ganache seems to a cool tool from Truffle for realizing a test rpc. However, it is still somehow at the beginning phase of the development. Sometimes it is not so trivial to set up, and sometimes not so sure how it will be integrated with the current test rpc from Truffle. 

Anyway if you want install on Ubuntu, use the following procedure:

git clone https://github.com/trufflesuite/ganache

run npm install

run npm start

Having deployed, make sure that the truffle.js file contains the correct host and port information, by default and configure truffle with same parameters as well.

port: 7545 

If you want to use geth console on the top of ganache, you can simply run it from a different terminal:

geth attach http://localhost:7545
