[TIL] Using Cli_wallet on Windows with Docker

in til •  2 years ago

This is really quick tip.

First of all, you need CPU that supports virtualization.

Then if you have Windows 10 Pro (which support Hyper-V) install Docker (https://docs.docker.com/engine/getstarted/step_one/#docker-for-windows).
If you have Windows home or others install Docker Toolbox (https://www.docker.com/products/docker-toolbox )

Run cmd.exe

Type and enter

docker run -ti --name cli_wallet steemit/steem /usr/local/steemd-default/bin/cli_wallet -swss://steemd.steemit.com

You now have cli_wallet on Windows! :)

Add: Special thanks to @gtg for helping with commands.

I changed the node to steemd.steemit.com which supports more plugins.

As far as docker works in win 7. You may have to install docker toolbox.

Useful tip!

This is really cool thanks for the post!

This is not working in windows after install the software
docker run -ti --name cli_wallet steemit/steem /usr/local/steemd-default/bin/cli_wallet -swss://steemd.steemit.com

If you installed Docker Toolbox, double click on the Docker Quickstart Terminal icon, and once it's done setting up then execute the command in there.

Thanks for this; I needed it to delegate my Steem Power.
