How I use the bitshares wallet painlessly.
« on: April 01, 2015, 12:51:45 AM »

I pay $15 a month for a double-core, 2gb ram, 40gb SSD, machine/instance. I make a 4gb swap file on the SSD. On that I run the bitshares daemon, and the nodejs web wallet. Then in my web browser I could use the client at ${machine_ip}:8000. I actually block port 8000 out of caution ( I couldn't figure out how to have the web socket bind to localhost ) and then I forward the port to my laptop over an ssh session I initiate with the machine. But this shouldn't be necessary since the web socket has authentication.

This is great for me, because running the daemon on my laptop is a disaster. I've had the setup for many months.

I booster my RAM to 16GB and smooth sailing except for a recent GUI bug on the 0.8.0a update. 8)

if one has a good desktop computer they can probably manage. Besides resources, the problem with running on a laptop, is when you're laptop sleeps, then when it wakes up it has to resync. Sometimes it won't even resync. But if you have a windows machine maybe it's not so great, since the windows client is always having problems... so I hear.

I'm not a techie, but on MacBooks there is a command in the terminal window to prevent the laptop from sleeping, "pmset noidle". Worth looking up. Not sure about windows.

I use an app called Caffeine which essentially does the same thing without having to go into the terminal.. and it lives in the menu bar for easy access

With that said, when my computer sleeps or turns off the blockchain syncs so quickly that it's nearly immediate.
