The WalletNode API is intended to provide a port that other apps can use to interface with a user's wallet and operate on the blockchain. Using the swagger interface (below) is recommended to test development. If the development-mode option is omitted, the port 8080 interface remains open to accept the same commands Swagger helped generate.
One way to access the complete WalletNode API is to access the local swagger interface. Swagger provides a complete API listing as well as a convenient interface for testing API calls.
First, start WalletNode in development mode:
./pastelup-linux-amd64 start walletnode --development-mode
Then, navigate to the local API interface at http://127.0.0.1:8080/swagger using a web browser.
