What About the CLI *nix Wallet?

I’m assuming there was one or more that the developers were testing before creating the Win/OSX GUI.

Is it available to the public.

What’s your issue?

The issue is that I can’t seem to find it. Is there one available?


just try so lookup for api https://forum.cardano.org/search?q=api

Thanks. I was thinking there was a CLI application already assembled?

I guess the API commands will do.


Right now, there is only a CLI for running Cardano SL but not the wallet: https://cardanodocs.com/technical/cli-options/

I think many would agree that it is a major oversight to not have a plain old simple Linux CLI wallet listed right up front on your web site like other cryptocurrencies.

I suspect a lot of people are holding off on Cardano because they don’t want to jump through hoops to try and get a working wallet on their laptops.

Sure we can create our own, or set up some dedicated virtual machine, but most people will either wait for a binary or move on.

Lets face it, people who are into cryptocurrency are often running Linux as their OS and a simple CLI means it isn’t as complicated and prone to bugs and security issues the way a GUI app can be.
