I am a newbie with blockchain overall. What I am trying an an experimental basis is: having a webpage display my balance in one of my accounts (on test-net).
I am using meteor for my web interface, web3 for connecting with client, client being go-ethereum. And I have geth installed on OSX as well. Problem is I can either run Ethereum Wallet or geth at one time. I understand that if the purpose is syncing with respect to chain, there is no point running two instances - wallet and geth together.
The issue is when I am trying to do some web development. I would be creating contracts etc. on JS and I would be pushing those on blockchain. (Note: everything till now is on testnet)
At the same time, I also want to do experiments on contracts using Ethereum wallet because of it's easy UI.
Question then is how to have geth and Ethereum running at the same time. Currently, when I have one running and I am trying to run another, the error is:
if Wallet is running, same kind of resource temporarily unavailable error pops up, when I am trying to run geth using
[~]$ geth --testnet --mine --rpc --rpccorsdomain "http://localhost:3000"
What am I doing wrong?
