Install Cleos and other EOS tools
We strongly recommend you to use Docker image to setup your development environment.
Please refer to official guide.
Create and unlock wallet
To create wallet, run
$ cleos wallet create --to-console
and password of wallet will be shown on terminal
This key is very important. You should keep this password into safe place like password manager.
In some case, you must open your wallet explicitly. Do this command if Cleos says 'Wallet not found'.
$ cleos wallet open
When you use wallet, you must unlock wallet ahead.
$ cleos wallet unlock --password <Password>
Import your public key
In most case, you only need key of active permission, so you should import only that.
Owner permission is mainly used to recover other permission, therefore it is not necessary to develop EOS application.
To import private key, run
$ cleos wallet import --private-key <Private key>
Of course, you must replace
If you just created EOS account on irex, you can copy above command from registered page.
Once your key is imported successfully, corresponding public key will appear on terminal.
Please make sure that the key matches with public key of active permission.
