This method is for Ubuntu/Debian based OS and MacOS machines with Homebrew installed. Faster than building from source, but no cutting edge features or latest version. If you would like to build from source or download binary release, see the official Parity Releases Page. The xDai network is supported by
Parity stable versions 2.5.8+, and beta versions 2.6.3+.
Open a bash Terminal and enter the command below, if the client needs an update just simply run the command a second time.
bash <(curl https://get.parity.io -kL)
This will install and configure the Parity client for you. On Ubuntu, this script will also offer to install the Netstats client and connect it to ethstats.net. If you plan on using
Parity for xDai only, there is no need to install the extra software.
sudo snap install parity --edge
Parity on Windows can either be installed as a System Service or executed from a folder. The executable file is available on Parity's Releases Page.
parity --chain xdai --no-warp
If you would like to limit or choose specific bootnodes, you can obtain the bootnodes.txt file from POA github:
git clone -b dai https://github.com/poanetwork/poa-chain-spec.git
enter all supplied enodes for the desired network separated by a comma, no space
parity --chain xdai --bootnodes enode://ENODE@IP:PORT,enode://ENODE@IP:PORT
Parity's UI is deprecated, but information on the site provides alternatives to a local Parity Ethereum node: https://wiki.parity.io/Parity-Wallet
