Running on a Host
Running a collateral auction keeper directly on a host

Prerequisties

Python 3.6+

Get RAI:

Buy RAI from Uniswap v2 or open a SAFE and generate it.

Clone:

1
git clone https://github.com/reflexer-labs/auction-keeper.git
2
cd auction-keeper
3
git submodule update --init --recursive
Copied!

Install:

This creates a virtual environment and installs requirements.
./install.sh

1) Start virtualenv

source _virtualenv/bin/activate

2) Create a model file

Paste the following code into collateral_model.sh:
1
#!/usr/bin/env bash
2
while true; do
3
echo "{}"
4
sleep 120
5
done
Copied!
NOTE: Currently, collateral auctions sell collateral at a fixed discount and so the keeper doesn't use a bidding model. This empty bidding model is simply a placeholder.

3) Create the keeper run file

Create a file called run_auction_keeper.sh and paste the following code in it:
1
#!/bin/bash
2
bin/auction-keeper \
3
--model ./collateral_model.sh \
4
--rpc-uri <ETH_RPC_URL> \
5
--eth-from <KEEPER_ADDRESS> \
6
--eth-key key_file=<KEYSTORE_FILE>
Copied!

Then, substitute the following variables:

ETH_RPC_URL - the URL of the ethereum RPC connection
KEEPER_ADDRESS - the keeper's address. It should be in checksummed format(not lowercase).
KEYSTORE_FILE - your Ethereum UTC JSON keystore filename
For more information about this keystore format and how to generate them:

Finally:

chmod +x run_auction_keeper.sh

4) Start the keeper and enter your keystore file password

./run_auction_keeper.sh
1
$ ./run_auction_keeper.sh
2
Password for /keystore/key.json:
