Install ioctl cli

A short introduction to ioctl, the IoTeX command line client

You can easily download and install the latest releases of ioctl by typing the following command in a terminal window:

Using curl:

# install ioctl latest stable
curl | sh
# install ioctl latest unstable build
curl | sh -s "unstable"

Once ioctl is installed in your system, you must configure the endpoint of an IoTeX full node that acts as a Gateway to the network. Anyone can install an IoTeX full node and configure it as a gateway. Here we will use the public endpoints provided by the IoTex team for the mainnet and testnet networks:

# Point ioctl to the IoTeX Mainnet
ioctl config set endpoint

# Point ioctl to the IoTeX Testnet
ioctl config set endpoint
