As a Ðapp developer you have three main resources which allow Ðapp development.

Main Resources

  • Web3 JavaScript API - This is the main JavaScript SDK to use when you want to interact with a nodes API
  • JSON RPC API - This is the low level JSON RPC 2.0 interface to interface with a node. This API is used by the Web3 JavaScript API.
  • Solidity Documentation - Solidity is the Ethereum developed Smart Contract language, which compiles to EVM (Ethereum Virtual Machine) opcodes.

Other Resources:

  • Standardized Contract APIs - Standard contract API, which should be used to make some contract types accessible by other Ðapps. (Not yet finalised)
  • Useful Ðapp Patterns - Code snippets which are useful for Ðapp development.
  • Dapp using Meteor - This short tutorial gives an intro on how to start building a Ðapp using Meteor, and also why Meteor is a good fit for Ðapps.

Useful read

  • FAQ - Collection of links, useful for understanding the Ethereum eco system.
  • Glossary - Great explanation of Blockchain related terms.
