Codespaces is an online development environment, hosted by GitHub, that allows you to develop entirely in the cloud.

Config .devcontainer in your project

Open you project in Codespaces

Please refer to

Setup you dev environment

Please ensure that abtnode dev can work correctly in your project

In your codespaces:

  • Run abtnode dev to setup you dev environment
  • After successfully starting the dev environment, use Command + MouseDown to access the link in the terminal
✔ Blocklet react-demo@0.1.3 was successfully started

ℹ You can access with the following URL


ℹ Note that your blocklet is running in development in ABT Node,
ℹ To run it in production mode, you can use abtnode bundle and then abtnode deploy.

When you open your codespace again, your ABT Node daemon may have been closed. At this point, please run abtnode start to start ABT Node daemon


Unable to log in to ABT Node

Currently, the service in Codespaces does not support public access, so the mobile ABT Wallet cannot communicate with the ABT Node in your codespace. A temporary solution is to use ngrok to establish a channel to bypass Codespaces.

  1. Install ngrok
# In your codespace

curl -o
unzip ./
  1. Config ngrok

  2. Use ngrok to establish ABT Node access channel
# In your codespace

./ngrok http 80

After the access channel is successfully established, you can access the ABT Node through the Forwarding address in the Terminal
