Getting Started#



To run an Ergo node you need Java installed on your system. Version 9 or 11 is recommended.

curl -s "" | bash
sdk install java

Then run the following script to download the node and setup your API password

bash -c "$(curl -s"

You can track the status of the sync by comparing the heights found in to the the ones on the explorer.

Please see the troubleshooting page for more information.

Run each startup#

  • Open System Preferences > Users & Groups > User ID (your nickname on the right)
  • Now select the Login items tab .

To add the jar as a startup item, you'll need to create a wrapper shell script, set the permissions to allow execute, and then add it by pressing + and selecting the script.
