A basic code to manage your hacknets for you, while trying not to apend too much money.

Guide to Basic Hacknet Manager

How to Use

Make a .js file, or a .ns file. Either of those will work.

.script uses a different standard so those wont work.

Then paste the code into it.

The new file starts with some stuff all ready in it, so make sure you paste over it.

The Code

/** @param {NS} ns **/
export async function main(ns) {
	function myMoney() {
		return ns.getServerMoneyAvailable("home");
	//this script is designed to manage the hacknet nodes
	//to prevent excess spending i've limited it from spending
	//more than half the players money
	var nodes = 0;
	var ref = 0;
	while (true) {
		//sleep for second to prevent the loop from crashing the game
		await ns.sleep(1000);
		//buy a node if we have more than twice the money needed
		if (ns.hacknet.getPurchaseNodeCost() < myMoney() / 2) {
			ref = ns.hacknet.purchaseNode();
			ns.print("bought node hn-" + ref);
		nodes = ns.hacknet.numNodes()
		for (var i = 0; i < nodes; i++) {
			//check if nodes level is a multiple of 10
			var mod = ns.hacknet.getNodeStats(i).level % 10;
			//buy level node to the nearest multiple of 10 if we have double the money needed
			if (ns.hacknet.getLevelUpgradeCost(i, 10 - mod) < myMoney() / 2) {
				ns.hacknet.upgradeLevel(i, 10 - mod);
				ns.print("node hn-" + i + " leveled up");
			//same for ram
			if (ns.hacknet.getRamUpgradeCost(i) < myMoney() / 2) {
				ns.print("node hn-" + i + " ram upgraded");
			//and cores
			if (ns.hacknet.getCoreUpgradeCost(i) < myMoney() / 2) {
				ns.print("node hn-" + i + " core upgraded");
