Installing the Bonder with Docker (recommended)

Installing the bonder with Docker

Installing Docker

The first step is to install Docker on your server. The official Docker install Instructions are here. A concise version of the instructions for installing Docker on an Ubuntu server are below:

sudo apt-get update
curl -fsSL | sudo apt-key add -
sudo add-apt-repository "deb [arch=amd64] focal stable"
sudo apt-get install docker-ce -y
sudo usermod -aG docker $USER
newgrp docker
docker info

Pulling the image

Next, you need to pull the bonder image.

docker pull hopprotocol/hop-node:mainnet

Adding an alias

To conveniently run the bonder process, add the following line to the end of your ~/.bashrc file.

alias hop='docker run -it -v ~/.hop:/root hopprotocol/hop-node:mainnet --config=/root/config.json'

Once that is done, source that file with source ~/.bashrc.
