Developer mode

You can start the bee in dev mode by running the command:

bee dev

It will start an instance with volatile persistence all back-ends mocked.

As a developer you interact with all the usual HTTP endpoints, for instance you can buy postage stamps and use them to upload files, which will be saved to memory.

Configuration options#

It accepts the same configuration options as a normal bee but it will ignore the ones that are not relevant (accounting, networking, blockchain etc).


If you enable the restricted mode but don't provide an admin password it will use the default value 'hello'. Then you can use it in your header: Authorization: Bearer OmhlbGxv
