Arabica devnet

arabica-devnet

Arabica devnet is a testnet from Celestia Labs that is focused exclusively on providing developers with enhanced performance and the latest upgrades for testing their rollups and applications.

Arabica does not focus on validator or consensus-level testing, rather, that is what Mocha testnet is used for. If you are a validator, we recommend testing your validator operations on the Mocha testnet.

Network stability and upgrades

Arabica has the latest updates from all Celestia's products deployed on it, it can be subject to many changes. Therefore, as a fair warning, Arabica can break unexpectedly, but given it will be continuously updated, it is a useful way to keep testing the latest changes in the software.

Developers can still deploy on Mocha testnet their sovereign rollups if they chose to do so, it just will always lag behind Arabica devnet until Mocha undergoes Hardfork Upgrades in coordination with Validators.

Integrations

This guide contains the relevant sections for how to connect to Arabica devnet, depending on the type of node you are running. Your best approach to participating is to first determine which node you would like to run. Each node’s guide will link to the relevant network in order to show you how to connect to them. Learn about the different endpoint types in the Cosmos SDK documentation.

Using consensus endpoints with DA nodes

Consensus RPC endpoints are used to provide DA nodes with state access for querying the chain’s state and broadcasting transactions (balances, blobs, etc.) to the Celestia network.

Developers will need to provide a –core.ip string from a consensus node’s URI or an IP that populates 2 ports for 2 types (RPC and gRPC, at ports 26657 and 9090, respectively) to their respective DA node.

EXAMPLE

bash
celestia <da_type> start –core.ip <url> –core.rpc.port <port> \
    –core.grpc.port <port> \
celestia <da_type> start –core.ip <url> –core.rpc.port <port> \
    –core.grpc.port <port> \

RPCs for DA nodes to initialise or start your celestia-node to Arabica devnet with can be found in the table in the "Direct endpoints with open ports" section above.

As an example, this command will work to start a light node with state access, using default ports:

bash
celestia light start --p2p.netowrk arabica \
  --core.ip validator-1.celestia-arabica-11.com
celestia light start --p2p.netowrk arabica \
  --core.ip validator-1.celestia-arabica-11.com

Bridge node runners

Not all of the RPC endpoints do not guarantee the full block history. Find an archive endpoint on the community dashboard or run your own consensus full node with no pruning for your bridge node.
