Secure the networkBug Bounty 2019



The colony-starter-basic package is a starter project that demonstrates how to use colonyJS (a JavaScript client for colonyNetwork). This project is set up to start a local test network using Ganache and then deploy the colonyNetwork contracts to the local test network using Truffle. This project also uses TrufflePig to find and read the deployed contracts during local development.

This project includes example scripts also found in the colonyJS Local Setup documentation. In order to help you hit the ground running with your new project, this starter project includes all of the examples from the docs plus some, and it gives you the opportunity to execute and test those examples with a few simple commands.


  • Yarn 1.12.3
  • Docker
  • Node 10.12.0

You may find it helpful to use Node Version Manager (nvm) to manage Node versions.

If you are using Linux, check out the Linux Setup page to ensure Yarn and Docker are set up accordingly.
