Ganache Settings

You can change some features of the generated blockchain through the Settings pages, accessed by the gear icon in the top right corner. You'll also be prompted with the settings screen when created a New Workspace.

The settings page will vary depending on whether you're developing on Ethereum or Corda. After updating your settings, don't forget to save your changes.

Ganache Settings

*Ganache Settings*

To configure Truffle connect to Ganache, edit truffle-config.js to point to the Ganache's IP and port, e.g.,

module.exports = {
  networks: {
    development: {
      host: "localhost",
      port: 7545,
      network_id: "1234"
    }
    // live: { ... }
  }
};

Then you can run migration commands like truffle migrate --network development.
