Voting with the command-line client
« on: January 07, 2015, 04:10:06 PM »

I recently had the need to vote with the command-line client, and I felt that the documentation was a little lacking in this area. I've updated the related pages in the wiki for now, and plan to update the "internal" API documentation in the client itself later, so if you use the command-line client, please review these pages and let me know if there are any points that need clarifying in the procedures for creating a slate or casting a vote:

great timing - very concise..

suggestion: add "or disapprove" here: Approve or disapprove all trusted delegates using either the CLI command approve...

And, what is the best way to list the delegates in someone's slate?  For example, all I see is a 64bit slate_id in zeroc account's public data

The slate_id points to a "slate record" in the blockchain that contains the list of recommended accounts. There's currently no good way to display a delegate slate in either the command-line client or the GUI, this needs addressing in the near future I think.

Agreed!

I've been trying to figure out how to display slates on bitsharesblocks but as of right now it's a bit of a pain, the only way to find the info on a slate is to parse the transaction where it was defined, but those transactions can be quite messy, see https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=12270.msg171153#msg171153 for some examples.

I've added an issue to github for this, I think it should be supported as a feature in the client itself, given its importance: https://github.com/BitShares/bitshares/issues/1216
