- Title: gator.rb - STEEM Power Delegation script for STEEM
- Tags: radiator ruby steem steemdev delegation
Mostly a compatibility/code update for the latest version of #radiator and other gems.
Gator allows you to delegate STEEM Power from one account to another. This script is especially useful for dealing with multiple delegator accounts, like mined accounts.
Please note, this script is intended for doing delegation from a large number of accounts in a single batch. If you would like to delegate from a single account, you should consider Vessel by @jesta.
To use this Radiator script:
$ sudo apt-get install ruby-full git openssl libssl1.0.0 libssl-dev $ gem install bundler
$ gem install bundler
I've tested it on various versions of ruby. The oldest one I got it to work was:
ruby 2.0.0p645 (2015-04-13 revision 50299) [x86_64-darwin14.4.0]
First, clone this gist and install the dependencies:
$ git clone https://gist.github.com/3107372d2a52fed7c8f1a2e943cf6300.git gator $ cd gator $ bundle install
Edit the file
delegators.txt and add all of the accounts you want to delegate from. You must use the active-wif.
Typically, you can upgrade to the latest version by this command, from the original directory you cloned into:
$ git pull
Usually, this works fine as long as you haven't modified anything. If you get an error, try this:
$ git stash --all $ git pull --rebase $ git stash pop
If you're still having problems, I suggest starting a new clone.
To do the actual delegation:
$ ruby gator.rb vesting_shares:42437.7 delegatee:inertia broadcast:true
Gator will now delegate
42437.700000 VESTS to
inertia (for example).
To delegate a dynamic amount based on the current vesting balance of each delegator:
$ ruby gator.rb vesting_shares:auto delegatee:inertia broadcast:true
Gator will now delegate
100% of vesting - 1 STEEM to
inertia. It is advisable to leave some VESTS on the account, otherwise it won't have enough bandwidth to do anything.
To reset delegation:
$ ruby gator.rb vesting_shares:0 delegatee:inertia broadcast:true
Gator will now remove all delegation for each delegator from
inertia. Keep in mind, when resetting delegation, any amount that was previously delegated will be in limbo and take 7 days to return to the original delegator.

Problem: What does this error mean?
gator.yml:1: syntax error, unexpected ':', expecting end-of-input
Solution: You ran
ruby gator.yml but you should run
