Ord can be tested using the following flags to specify the test network. For more information on running Bitcoin Core for testing, see Bitcoin's developer documentation.
Regtest doesn't require downloading the blockchain or indexing ord.
Run bitcoind in regtest with:
bitcoind -regtest -txindex
Create a wallet in regtest with:
ord -r wallet create
Get a regtest receive address with:
ord -r wallet receive
Mine 101 blocks (to unlock the coinbase) with:
bitcoin-cli generatetoaddress 101 <receive address>
Inscribe in regtest with:
ord -r wallet inscribe --fee-rate 1 <file>
Mine the inscription with:
bitcoin-cli generatetoaddress 1 <receive address>
View the inscription in the regtest explorer:
ord -r server
ord -r wallet inscribe --fee-rate 1 p5.js
This should return a
inscription_id which you can then reference in your
ATTENTION: These ids will be different when inscribing on mainnet or signet, so be sure to change those in your recursive inscription for each chain.
Then you can inscribe your recursive inscription with:
ord -r wallet inscribe --fee-rate 1 recursive-inscription.html
Finally you will have to mine some blocks and start the server:
bitcoin-cli generatetoaddress 6 <receive address> ord -r server
