SiaSkynet C# SDK

This library enables all C# developers in the world to use SkyDB.

One of the most exciting features of this SDK is the full compatibility with Blazor WebAssembly. Blazor allows you to create C# apps and run them entirely in the browser using WebAssembly. The app can then be uploaded to Skynet for hosting.

Combining the large C# ecosystem with the power of SkyDB and the speed of WebAssembly makes this solution ready for a decentralized future!

Sia Skynet client

  • Upload and download files from Sia Skynet.
  • Interact with the registry
  • Use SkyDB

How to use

See included test project and Blazor sample app.

Install: SiaSkynet on NuGet

Initialize the client

var _client = new SiaSkynetClient();

Upload a file

string fileName = "test.txt";
using (var fileStream = File.OpenRead(fileName))
    var response = await _client.UploadFileAsync(fileName, fileStream);
    var skylink = response.Skylink;

Download a file

string skylink = "AAAAQZg5XQJimI9FGR73pOiC2PnflFRh03Z4azabKz6bVw";
using (var response = await _client.DownloadFileAsStreamAsync(skylink))
    using (StreamReader sr = new StreamReader(response))
        string text = await sr.ReadToEndAsync();

Use these methods if you also want the original filename and content type.



Support for SkyDB

Set and get values on SkyDB:

var key = await SiaSkynetClient.GenerateKeys("my private key seed");

var success = await _client.SkyDbSetAsString(key.privateKey, key.publicKey, "datakey", "data");

string result = await _client.SkyDbGetAsString(key.publicKey, "datakey");

Assert.AreEqual("data", result);


SkyDB uses the Skynet Registry, it's also possible to interact with the registry using API's:

  • siaSkynetClient.GetRegistry
  • siaSkynetClient.SetRegistry
  • siaSkynetClient.UpdateRegistry which performs a get and a set with a new revision number
