Agents come in all varieties. Some are simple and static; these might be appropriate for IoT use cases that are hard-wired for a single connection. Others are complex and cloud-based, suitable for enterprise use. Still others run on mobile devices for individual users. For more information about general agent theory or about agent categories, see the Agents Explainer HIPE.
This repo contains a handful of reference agents. To run them, you must have a build of libindy plus a running ledger. If you are just trying them out, we recommend running a ledger locally using docker. See the README in each implementation directory for more details.
The repo also has some useful tools for agent developers--especially a test suite that can exercise agent interoperability.
