Exploring Hyperledger Indy through indy-dev Example

Overview

Storyline

Run The Example

$ git clone https://github.com/sovrin-foundation/indy-dev.git
$ cd indy-dev
$ sudo make build
$ sudo make start
After make start we will be in a shell of indy-dev
Two docker containers are running after make start
$ cd python
$ python3 getting_started.py
After executing the python code, we see detail log of the story (truncated)
Last several lines when the python code is completely executed
Exit the shell

Implementation: Setup
