  • aragonUI: Aragon-native toolkit of UI components for decentralized apps.
  • Aragon client: Client to interact with aragonOS-powered decentralized organizations. It implements a signer with transaction pathing, notifications and a sandboxed environment for aragonOS-based apps using aragonAPI.
  • DAO: Stands for Decentralized Autonomous Organization. Here, a DAO means a set of aragonOS smart contracts.
  • DAO Kit: Smart contracts that can be used as templates for creating pre-configured DAOs in just one transaction.
  • aragonID: aragonID is a lightweight identity system using ENS.

  • Aragon apps: Apps that use aragonOS, aragonAPI, and integrate inside the Aragon client.
  • Access Control List (ACL) The ACL is a mapping of who has permission to execute an action in an Aragon app and who can re-grant or revoke that permission.
