Introduction
A general introduction Source cli along with a brief description of commands and flags
sourced is a command line client for the Source Chain network. Source Chain users can use sourced to send transactions to the Source Chain network and query the blockchain data.
See here for instructions on installing sourced.

The default working directory for the sourced is $HOME/.source, which is mainly used to store configuration files and blockchain data. The Source key data is saved in the working directory of sourced. You can also specify the sourced working directory by using the --home flag when executing sourced.

By default, sourced uses tcp://localhost:26657 as the RPC address to connect to the Source Chain network. This default configuration assumes that the machine executing sourced is running as a full-node.
The RPC address can be specified to connect to any full-node with an exposed RPC port by adding the --node flag when executing sourced
