Alright, it looks like everything in the terminals is running well. The contract looks to be deployed successfully. It seems like there's supposed to be an API or something I can access via looking up the port that's being listened to. Ganache-cli says Listening on but when I put this into my browser I get 40 bad request

  • What command line are you using? ganache-cli is command line only it doesn't have a frontend.

  • I'm following this example. testrpc is supposed to be the old version of ganache from what I can tell. Did they get rid of the front end when they moved it to ganache? Commented Feb 12, 2020 at 1:38
  • That is a very old article I'd not use that as a starting example anymore. I'd suggest to try the Pet shop tutorial at trufflesuite.com/tutorials/pet-shop. More examples at trufflesuite.com/boxes.

    Ahhh okay. I was able to get it to work without a front end but I'll look into these for more tutorials. Thank you! Commented Feb 12, 2020 at 5:12

Ganache-cli is hosted at port 8545. try that I am sure It will work.

  • I used a custom port option to change which one, but I had the same error when I put it in the browser. Does ganache automatically set up an API or is there something I'm supposed to implement that I've neglected? Commented Feb 11, 2020 at 15:49
