Error in sdk local installation (PIP3)


I’m facing difficulties to install the 3bot locally on an Ubuntu 20.04 machine. I followed all the steps described in the manual (pip install), but when trying to launch the 3bot, I get the following error:

jerome@tower2:~$ threebot start --local

Can someone tell me what is wrong?

Thank you in advance for your help

I encountered this too. It seems that the interactive dialogues to set up identity went away at some point (the part where it asked you for your email address, 3bot name, and seed phrase). You can accomplish the same manually using python.

From inside your poetry shell, run jsng. Then run the following commands, replacing everything in square brackets with your relevant details and removing “.testnet” from the explorer url if you want mainnet:

JS-NG> myid ="[choose a name]", tname="[name].3bot", email="[your email address]", words="[your seed phrase]",  explorer_url="") 

JS-NG> myid.register() 
JS-NG> j.core.identity.set_default("[name you chose]") 

Also note that as of November the pip version was not compatible with testnet, so you may need to install the sdk via the “experts or developers” instructions if you want to use testnet.
