💻-CLI Docs

opendex-cli is the command line interface that handles much of the basic interaction with a running opendexd instance. If opendexd is installed globally, it can be launched from any directory. In the recommended opendex-docker setup, it can be used from within the opendexd ctl shell.

To get a list of up-to-date commands, run:

opendex-cli --help

Calling any one of the listed commands with the --help flag will output additional instructions for that particular command.

Examples for commands:

# Manually connect to another opendexd instance (has to be running the same network: simnet/testnet/mainnet)
$ opendex-cli connect 025[email protected]1.opendex.network:8885
# Places a new limit order BUYING 10 LTC for a price of 0.0079 BTC per LTC
$ opendex-cli buy 10 LTC/BTC 0.0079
# Places a new limit order SELLING 5 LTC for the best market price
$ opendex-cli sell 5 LTC/BTC market

By default, the CLI output is formatted and abbreviated. Append -j to any of the CLI calls to receive the full output in JSON format.
