Quorum Wizard: The Command-Line Tool for Setting Up Quorum Networks

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.

⚠️ Project Deprecation Notice ⚠️

quorum-wizard will be deprecated on December 31st 2021, date from when we will stop supporting the project.

From now on, we encourage all users to use to quorum-dev-quickstart which is a similar tool offering extra compatibility with Quorum products, in particular Hyperledger Besu and Orchestrate.

We will continue to support quorum-wizard in particular fixing bugs until the end of 2021.

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to the ConsenSys protocol engineering team on #Discord or by email.

Using GoQuorum Wizard

GoQuorum Wizard is written in Javascript and designed to be run as a global NPM module from the command line. Make sure you have Node.js/NPM installed (version 10 or higher).

Using npx to run the wizard without the need to install:

npx quorum-wizard

You can also install the wizard globally with npm:

npm install -g quorum-wizard

# Once the global module is installed, run:

Note: Many installations of npm don't have permission to install global modules and will throw an EACCES error. Here is the recommended solution from NPM


Here are the dependencies (in addition to NodeJS 10+) that are required depending on the mode that you run the wizard in:


  • Java (when running Tessera and/or Cakeshop)

Docker Compose:

  • Docker
  • docker-compose


  • Docker (for generating resources during network creation)
  • kubectl
  • minikube, Docker Desktop with Kubernetes enabled, or some other kubernetes context


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

-q, --quickstartCreate 3 node raft network with tessera and cakeshop (no user-input required)
generate --config <PATH>Generate a network from an existing config.json file
-r, --registry <REGISTRY>Use a custom docker registry (instead of registry.hub.docker.com)
-o, --outputPath <PATH>Set the output path. Wizard will place all generated files into this folder. Defaults to the location where Wizard is run
-v, --verboseTurn on additional logs for debugging
--versionShow version number
-h, --helpShow help
