Creating a Sawtooth Test Network

This section describes how to create a Sawtooth network for an application development environment. Each node is similar to the single-node environment described earlier in this guide, but the network uses a consensus algorithm that is appropriate for a Sawtooth network (instead of Devmode consensus). For more information, see About Sawtooth Networks.


For a single-node test environment, see Setting Up a Sawtooth Node for Testing.

Use the procedures in this section to create a Sawtooth test network using prebuilt Docker containers, a Kubernetes cluster inside a virtual machine on your computer, or a native Ubuntu installation.

To get started, read About Sawtooth Networks, then choose the guide for the platform of your choice.
