I am new to EOS and having some trouble. I got cleos working and I am connected to one of the api endpoints found here. It's working as far as I know since I am able to get block info. My end goal is to send a transaction to a contract.
First, is my understanding correct that I need to sign and then push the transaction?
Second, when I type
cleos sign help some things it says I need is
- transaction TEXT: The JSON string or filename defining the transaction to sign (required)
As far as the chain-id, is this just the chain-id field of
cleos get info?
I literally have no clue what the first part is asking for. I can't seem to find any examples anywhere. FWIW, I can get the abi of the contract that I want to interact with (but even that I have no clue what's going on).
