Creating a DID on Veres One
This quick Developer Guide will walk you through creating a decentralized identifier using command line tools.
Node.js v12 support will be added in the upcoming v0.5 release.
did-cli is a command line tool that allows the user to interact with the
Veres One ledger. See the README for
a full list of supported command line options.
Install the Decentralized Identifier CLI tool by running the following command:
> mkdir did-cli > cd did-cli > npm install did-cli
Generate a Decentralized Identifier
Generate a Decentralized Identifier on the Veres One Testnet by running the following command:
> ./node_modules/did-cli/did generate --register
Once the command above runs, you will have a new Decentralized Identifier. Information related to your Decentralized Identifier will be stored in the following directory:
> ls $HOME/.dids/veres/test
