Run the Kitchen Node

To run the code in the recipes, git clone the source repository. We also want to kick-start the node compilation as it may take about 30 minutes to complete depending on your hardware.

git clone
cd recipes/kitchen/node

# This step takes a while to complete
cargo build --release


Refer to the following sections to:

Once the compilation is completed, you can first purge any existing blockchain data (useful to start your node from a clean state in future) and then start the node.

# Inside `recipes/kitchen` folder

# Purge any existing blockchain data. Enter `y` upon prompt.
./target/release/kitchen-node purge-chain --dev

# Start the Kitchen Node
./target/release/kitchen-node --dev
