Enjoy Waves SDK — a diverse collection of tools, products and components. Create your blockchain-empowered applications and smart contracts from scratch, using structured and comprehensive client libraries and toolkits.
Transactions and, specifically, token transfer transactions, are an essential part of every blockchain. This applies to Waves, as well, but, unlike many other blockchains, the Waves protocol has different types of transactions, making every operation as simple as possible and keeping the protocol fast and secure. Such operations as storing data, issuing and burning tokens, leasing and creating aliases are executed by sending a simple transaction with no need to write a smart contract. Different applications can utilize blockchain in different ways: as an immutable data storage by sending data transactions, as a payment layer by sending transfer transactions or for implementing business logic by using smart contracts.
Waves Explorer is an online service that displays Waves’ Mainnet, Testnet and Stagenet blockchain data in a human-readable form. Configurable for users’ custom network, Waves Explorer provides tracking of any network or blockchain node and delivers APIs that enable the display of token distribution by addresses and history of balance changes.
Waves Keeper is a browser extension that allows users to sign transactions and securely interact with Waves-enabled web services. Waves Keeper is designed for convenience, enabling users to sign transactions with just a couple of clicks. Users can create multiple wallets and switch between them easily. And if a user ever forgets the password to the account, the access can be recovered from the seed phrase.
Waves Node API allows applications to interact with the blockchain node to send transactions or fetch data by making HTTP requests. Waves Nodes have an out-of-the-box REST API, while gRPC protocol is available as an optional extension.
Enjoy the advantages of Ride programming language. Ride is an easy-to-learn and user-friendly programming language specifically designed for developing decentralised applications. Ride facilitates building decentralized applications without gas, allowing developers to benefit from a cheaper and more convenient coding process than ever before and making blockchain development totally easy.
Basically, a smart account is an account with an attached script, so that the account can validate every transaction before confirming it. An account can restrict any outgoing transaction based on: signatures and other supplied data, proofs, current blockchain height and arbitrary blockchain data, like data from oracles sent as data transactions.
Smart assets are unique virtual currency tokens that may represent a tangible real-world asset, or a non-tangible ownership that can be purchased, sold, or exchanged as defined by the rules of a script on the Waves blockchain network. In simple words, smart assets are assets with an attached script which validates every transaction with the asset.
A decentralized application (dApp) is an application that is stored and executed on the blockchain network. There are many fields in which dApps can be implemented, including decentralized finances, decision-making, certification, tokenization, team management and gambling.
Waves-dApp.com provides an auto-generated UI from dApp meta information and works via Waves Keeper and/or other Web 3.0 providers inside the Waves ecosystem. It works with Mainnet, Testnet, Stagenet and Customnet (localhost: 6869). Just paste a dApp address or URL in the search field and the app will figure out the network from the bytes of the address and operate with the correct node. Waves-dApp.com allows developers to run early testing and try out functionality as the contract is being implemented. Testers have full access to all callable functions, and dApp administrators don’t need to build a separate interface as the Waves-dApp UI is simple and powerful.
This is an API for analytical services aimed at retrieving data quickly and conveniently with additional filters and ordering options. Data Service API stores blockchain data in a centralized database which is more flexible and scalable than a blockchain node.
The matcher exposes its own REST API for accessing the order book and submitting orders. This allows users to implement any kind of trading UI or trading bots.
PyWaves is an object-oriented Python interface to the Waves blockchain platform. The library is developed by the community and is open-source. Latest documentation and examples can be found in the Github repository.
It’s a Java library for interacting with the Waves blockchain. It supports node interaction, offline transaction signing, matcher orders and creation of addresses and keys.
You can find other libraries including С, C#, Go, Kotlin, Swift and Rust in the documentation
