Using maia from the terminal

Store any field in a decentralized way around the world at no cost.


In the last post I presented the command to use deltangle from the terminal. In this I present the command to use MAIA.

For those who do not know what MAIA is, it is a way to use MAM in which it is always returned the last message. By making a similarity, you could see it as a variable in the IOTA’s tangle that only you can modify.

To use MAIA from the terminal do the following:

1) Install node

curl -sL | sudo -E bash -
sudo apt-get install -y nodejs npm

2) Install the following libs

npm install -g iota.lib.js
npm install -g minimist

3) Download and decompress maia.tar.gz in <maia path>

mkdir <maia path>
cd <maia path>
tar -zxvf maia.tar.gz
rm maia.tar.gz


echo export MAIA_PATH=<maia path> >> ~/.profile
echo 'export PATH="$MAIA_PATH:$PATH"' >> ~/.profile
source ~/.profile

5) Set execution permission

chmod +x $MAIA_PATH/maia

6) Run maia

Update. How to share your public address using MAIA.

That’s all. In case you want to donate some IOTAs to support my work, send them to my donation address.
