TLDR; Try out Bee Dashboard which can help you setup your Bee node, monitor its status and perform actions like uploading files and cashing out cheques. Special thanks to our contributors matmertz25, centerorbit and tmm360
At Swarm, we are striving to build just that. Good infrastructure. But this is a process and just as it took skilled engineers to set up wireless networks 20 years ago, we too are at the stage where starting up a Bee node entails several steps with instructions differing greatly between operating systems. We are extremely grateful to everyone who has already put their time and effort into running one of the 51,000 Bee nodes. Just as we announced the Rise of the Bee airdrop, we were quickly reminded that setting up the nodes is not as user friendly as we would like it to be. We always wanted to build a UI for Swarm, but as we had other more pressing tasks, we decided to offer it to the community as a bounty. The end result was a rather nice surprise.
