Cardano Environment

Hi,

I would like to know if there is an alternative way to deploy a Cardano environment for academic purposes. I have tried using some online platforms, but they did not yield the expected results. Unfortunately, I am unable to deploy a Cardano Node because my machine does not have the required resources.

Thanks!

Hmm, what exactly does academic purposes mean? Do you have server somewhere, where you could install and run it instead of your personal machine? Can your institution give you a better machine?

Other than that, the best option is demeter.run. But I guess that is the one you already tried?

Depending on what it is you want to do, it might also be possible to do without a node at all and just interacting with the blockchain through blockfrost.dev or api.koios.rest. Some of the Cardano libraries for different programming languages have support for one or both of them built in.
