I’m trying to set up the lbry API daemon for some development, as suggested by the documentation at https://lbry.tech/api/sdk. To start with, the majority of docker images published by lbry are missing any kind of documentation (for example lbry/lbrynet-tv, the most downloaded image). I then found the lbry/wallet-server image, the description for which shows it’s the lbry SDK, however running this only results in a
connection problem - is your daemon running error, suggesting it’s documentation is wrong and it’s not the SDK daemon.
After a large amount of trial and error, I found the lbry/lbrynet image. This is lacking much useful documentation for running the image, but the sample command confirms it’s for the daemon. Running this results in a large number of
on-demand fetching height log messages, however the image then exits.
As a new developer to the lbry platform, this all contributes to a feeling that lbry is not yet mature enough for any reasonable amount of work, and that a huge amount of time would be wasted attempting to get even the very basics up and running. Am I missing something obvious here?
