yes, it did run successfully! Lots of cool activity going on in the log. I think next I’ll lookup the API and try to work with it from command-line.
I want to understand better how this differs from the stuff in cardano-sl/scripts/launch and cardano-sl/scripts/launch/connect-to-cluster as it sounds similar and is referenced in cardanodocs.com/technical/launcher. Any ideas? I’ll research and try to follow those instructions too.
I also want to understand how or why the wallet is a separate application. When I ran a full bitcoin node a while ago, the features were all part of the same Bitcoin Core program, I believe. You can also run a bitcoin ‘lite node’ which is like a limited full node, for wallet functionality only.
