Since inception in November 2018, the aeternity community has build multiple useful tools for developers which we currently bundle under the name Developer Suite or in short Dev-Suite.
It should not be difficult to build a blockchain application (aepps) on aeternity
The simple goal of the Dev-Suite participants is: to drive the best possible developer experience (having all tools and services in place), thus driving more developers into the aeternity ecosystem and drive further adoption.
The Dev-Suite is still in it’s childhood but developing fast. The current scope are
- ForgaAE https://github.com/aeternity/aepp-forgae-js
- Playground https://github.com/aeternity/aepp-playground
Following tools will become part of the Playground aepp:
- Googles Transaction Debugger https://goggles.aepps.com/
- Sophia Contracts Editor https://testnet.contracts.aepps.com/
- Faucet https://testnet.faucet.aepps.com/
- Debug Console
- aepp Browser and Wallet
An very early test-version of the Playground aepp can be found here: https://testing.playground.aepps.com/
The current roadmap can be followed here https://waffle.io/aeternity/aepp-forgae-js and we will followup with updates in this threat. Please feel free to suggest features, report problems and contribute to the different developer tools!
In the upcoming days we will post an bigger update explaining the motivation and next-steps for the Developer Suite here in this Forum.
