GoQuorum Wizard

GoQuorum Wizard is a command line tool that allows users to set up a development GoQuorum network on their local machine in less than 2 minutes.

Quorum wizard terminal demo


quorum-wizard is written in JavaScript and designed to be installed as a global NPM module and run from the command line. Make sure you have Node.js/NPM installed.

Using npm:

npm install -g quorum-wizard

Using Yarn:

yarn global add quorum-wizard

Using GoQuorum Wizard

Once the global module is installed, run:


The wizard walks you through setting up a network, either using our quickstart settings (a simple 3-node GoQuorum network using Raft consensus), or customizing the options to fit your needs.


You can also provide these flags when running quorum-wizard:

  • -q, --quickstart create 3 node Raft network with Tessera and Cakeshop (no user-input required)
  • -v, --verbose Turn on additional logs for debugging
  • --version Show version number
  • -h, --help Show help


npx is also way to run npm modules without the need to actually install the module. Due to quorum-wizard needing to download and cache the quorum binaries during network setup, using npx quorum-wizard will not work at this time.
