Setting up Hexa Wallet

Prerequisites:

Make sure you have rn-nodeify as a global dependency. If you don't, run npm install -g rn-nodeify.

git clone https://github.com/bithyve/hexa.git
cd hexa
yarn install

Running Setup Script

MacOS or Linux

On MacOS and Linux there is no need to run setup.sh it will run autmatically after yarn install completes.

Windows

On Windows, if setup.bat does not run on its own after yarn install then it can be executed manually. it doesn't really matter if its run twice.

Open setup.bat in a text editor and enter your user account name where prompted. If you changed the location of the android sdk during installation, enter the path to the sdk instead of the one already present. Then, from the command prompt, run:

setup.bat

Building and Running Hexa Wallet

Running on simulator

IOS

yarn ios

Alternately XCode can also be used to build and run in a simulator

Android

yarn android or yarn androidDevelopmentDebug

Alternately Android Studio can also be used to build and run in a simulator

Running on device

IOS

Open HEXA.xcworkspace from <Hexa Project Root>/iOS in XCode and use the product > build for > running menu option to build and run Hexa Wallet on iPhone. This will work with a correct and updated XCode setup and only on trusted devices. Further support for running on iPhone is available on react native and xcode development sites and community forums.

Android

Ensure device is connected and recognised. Ensure no Android emulators are running.

yarn android or yarn androidDevelopmentDebug

Alternately Android Studio can also be used to build and run on Android device. This will work when Android development environment is setup correctly. Further support is available from react native and Android Studio guides. Please refer https://reactnative.dev/docs/running-on-device for further support.

Common Issues

  1. Build fails with one or more errors Makes sure yarn install was done after switching to a new branch. If that doesn't help please use yarn deep-clean this will remove node modules, flush node cache, fluch metro cache, reinstall node dependencies and re install pods.
  2. Always make sure metro is running in a new terminal window. If its not it can be started by running yarn startin a new termimal from project root.
  3. Notifications dont work in ios simulator and this will show up as an error in the console. Notifications will work when running in a iOS device.
  4. If Apple id or google id is not setup in the simulator then cloud backup will not work and cloud errors will be seen in the console.
  5. Scanner will not work in a simulator so a device will be required to test and debug scanner related features.
