Dev environment for demo/meetup

I’ve seen manfred use testnet and the bisq dev environment to demonstrate trading on a few different videos. Is there documentation on how to set this up?

I can see myself wowing thousands at my local crypto meetup :slight_smile:

look how easy this is!

Hi @peoples.

I just went through the process of setting this up myself.
I found the wiki documentation to be confusing and outdated. But I seem to have this somewhat working now. If you have questions, let me know and I might be able to help.

Could you suggest an updated content for the wiki?

Thanks! I do need help.

here’s my compile error:
error: package javafx.scene.input does not exist

openjfx is installed.
echo $JAVA_HOME is /usr/lib/jvm/default-java

java -version is
openjdk version “10.0.2” 2018-07-17
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 10.0.2+13-Ubuntu-1ubuntu0.18.04.2)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 10.0.2+13-Ubuntu-1ubuntu0.18.04.2, mixed mode)

Hm… maybe there are issues with openjdk and java 10? with oracle jdk all works.

Sure, I will do that!

Hi @Devin ,
afaik, we must download bitcoin-core in order to use it in regtest mode.
But, is it also mandatory to download the whole blockchain (as it seems), or is there a way to just download bitcoin-core alone ?
(sorry for the silly question).

I did manage to get regtest to work. It does not require a blockchain download.

I followed the example here:


No for regtest you create yoru own blocks by generate 1 in the Bitcoin core console.


I will make sure to clarify when I get a chance to update the wiki content.
Just trying to figure out if I can make a PR for wiki content lol
