Run a WAX Container

To run the waxteam/dev Docker image:

  1. Install Docker (if you haven’t done so already).

    Linux Users: It's recommended that you configure Docker to run without sudo to utilize all of our Docker-enabled make scripts. Refer to Post-installation steps for Linux for more information.
  2. Create a new directory named wax. You can use this folder to store WAX Blockchain source code, samples, and your WAX smart contracts directory.

  3. From the command line, start the waxteam/dev container in interactive mode and share your host’s wax directory. This command starts a bash session inside the container.


    docker run -it –name waxcdt -v /var/share/wax:/wax waxteam/cdt bash

    Windows 10

    docker run -it --name waxdev -v c:\wax:/wax waxteam/dev bash

    The console prints something similar to:

You should now have a running container with an active bash session. You can use this bash session to follow along with our Quickstart guides and tutorials.
