Quickstart

Do a quick test drive.

Option 1

You can try some free, online Jupyter notebooks that connect to a live Ocean test network.

Option 2

You can run and try every Ocean software component in your local machine, all at once, using Docker Compose.

First, you must set up some storage on Azure. (Yes, we know that’s not quick. Some day there will be a local storage option and then this really will be quick.)

Then:

git clone https://github.com/oceanprotocol/barge.git
cd barge/

./start_ocean.sh --latest

Seeing the dolphin means it’s working:

start_ocean.sh

Once everything is up and running, you can interact with the components. For example, to interact with Pleuston, go to:

http://localhost:3000/

For the details of what components are running, see the Ocean Protocol barge repository.
