Agent Pre-Reqs

Pre-requirements for Croncat Agent

Before you start installing the Croncat Agent Cli you need to prepare your computer/server/vps.


Please see the launch-tools repository for details on getting your agent set up.

NEAR Protocol


Before you start, you might want to ensure your system is up to date.

sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade -y

Install Nodes.js and NPM:

curl -sL | sudo -E bash -
sudo apt install build-essential nodejs

Check NodeJS and NPM version:

node -v

response: v17.x.x

npm -v

response: 8.x.x

And install NEAR-Cli:

sudo npm install -g near-cli

NEAR Account

If you do not have a NEAR Account yet, please create one Mainnet, Testnet, Guildnet.


The environment will need to be set each time a new shell is launched to select the correct network.

export NEAR_ENV=<network>

Where :

  • mainnet
  • testnet
  • guildnet


export NEAR_ENV=mainnet

And add to the ~/.bashrc file (or ~/.zshrc, etc. if your system uses a different one) so that you don't have to enter the command every time you log in

echo 'export NEAR_ENV=<network>' >> ~/.bashrc

NEAR Login

And now you can make a login:

near login

This command launches a web browser allowing for the authorization of a full access key to be copied locally.
