Augur Client

This is the frontend for Augur, a decentralized prediction market platform that runs on Ethereum.

How Dapps Work

Ethereum Dapps store their data on the Ethereum blockchain, and their frontends are web pages that use the JavaScript API to access blockchain data.

Getting Started

Running Ethereum

Install go-ethereum (installation instructions). Add a new account with geth account new and then start the client with geth --rpc --rpccorsdomain 'http://localhost:8080' --networkid 1010101 --protocolversion 59 --datadir directory_of_your_choice --shh --unlock primary --bootnodes "enode://035b7845dfa0c0980112abdfdf4dc11087f56b77e10d2831f186ca12bc00f5b9327c427d03d9cd8106db01488905fb2200b5706f9e41c5d75885057691d9997c@[::]:30303" console.

For more info checkout:

Local or Docker

You can launch augur-client locally with the instructions in the following sections, or run it in docker with one of:

# get a quick start with a pre-built image:
docker run -p 8080:8080 carver/augur-client

# or rebuild your own image with:
git clone
cd augur-client
docker build -t augur-client .
docker run -p 8080:8080 augur-client

Building augur-client

Install Node.js, then:

git clone
cd augur-client
git checkout develop
npm install -g grunt-cli
npm install
grunt browserify:build

Running augur-client

npm start


For development

use grunt watchify to have grunt watch for changes. grunt browserify:debug for helpful (yet slow) module mappings in console.

NOTE: a seperate dev branch is used when building in this manner and data will be seperate from the default build above.


We think Augur and Ethereum are pretty fascinating, and they're going to change the world. You should be a part of this.

We use ZenHub to organize our GitHub issues. Find an issue in the To Do column that looks good, comment on it to let us know you want to tackle it, and we'll help you get it done.

Most discussions happen in our Slack, which has an IRC gateway in #augur on Freenode. You can ask for a Slack invite there, or stick with IRC if you prefer.
