I have a question in regard to RPC node for Polkadot or Substrate.

RPC node configuration - I don't see too many information about this. Is there public information on how to setup a RPC, if there isn't, I am willing to do that if someone is willing to help me to understand how to setup.

If there are any more information on how to setup RPC node, and back to Polkadot.JS. please don't hesitate to contact me and help me with me. Much appreciate.

You can follow this tutorial


Step by step for RPC configuration:

  1. Declare your runtime api in your specific pallet: https://github.com/CocDap/VBI-Octopus-2/blob/assignment-3/pallets/template/rpc/runtime-api/src/lib.rs#L7

  2. Declare your rpc method and implement runtime api trait https://github.com/CocDap/VBI-Octopus-2/blob/assignment-3/pallets/template/rpc/src/lib.rs#L37

  3. Declare helper function in your pallet: https://github.com/CocDap/VBI-Octopus-2/blob/assignment-3/pallets/template/src/lib.rs#L211

  4. Define your runtime api in runtime/src/lib.rs: https://github.com/CocDap/VBI-Octopus-2/blob/assignment-3/runtime/src/lib.rs#L441

  5. Add your custom rpc in node/src/rpc.rs: https://github.com/CocDap/VBI-Octopus-2/blob/assignment-3/node/src/rpc.rs#L36

And how you query value through RPC

curl http://localhost:9933 -H "Content-Type:application/json;charset=utf-8" -d   '{
      "method":"<your rpc method",
      "params": []
