Dependency Installation & Preparation

With a high level, preliminary understanding of how a network like Polkadot functions at the architectural level, it is now time to put together one of our own. We will be installing and using Polkadot and Substrate binaries and dependencies to provision both the relay and parachain locally on our machine.

Clone this repository!

If you plan on following along, clone this repository which contains everything you need to follow the guide: parachain-guide-resources

In this section, you will:

  • Install polkadot and the substrate-parachain-template.
  • Acquire the necessary configuration files for running them.
  • Run both simultaneously in preparation for connecting them.
