Development Setup

Node.js LTS or greater required.

  • Note: @aragon/cli and truffle npm deps are automatically installed when bootstrapping.
# Bootstrap project dependencies:
$ npm i

# Start a local blockchain and deploy
# aragon dao kit with all apps:
$ npm start

# Develop single app react frontend:
$ npm run dev:projects

# Develop single app with backend and aragon wrapper:
$ npm run start:range

# current app name aliases: {address, projects, payout, range}

Extra tips

  • Individual development is ultra-fast thanks to parcel and hot module replacement.
  • Start the dao kit to manage smart contracts interactions between all "planning apps" and aragon official apps (token manager and voting right now)
  • The start script spawns a local blockchain, needed to publish the apps before deploying the dao kit template with all them.

Detailed information in the DEVELOPMENT_NOTES.md document.


The proposal for an Aragon Planning Suite was developed by members of Space Decentral and Giveth, and received funding via Aragon's Nest program: an example of decentralization at it's finest. We are developing this app as a collaborative unit because it is a crucial building block for any organization that aims to coordinate work and streamline management duties, without traditional managers. This app will work with any ERC-20 token or Aragon DAO.

The Suite

The Planning Suite is a collection of six Aragon Apps that supports the following:

  • Allocations: Propose new multi-party financial allocations, which are forwarded to the Range Voting app.
    • Dynamic Payout: Payroll contract that allows for dynamic allocations that are determined using range voting.
    • Payout Engine: Pay sharing contract using a percentage-based distribution system, where the percentages are determined using range voting.
  • Address Book: Maintain a list of Ethereum addresses (external contacts/collaborators) mapped to human-readable names.
    • Fixed Payout: The address book will enable a more user-friendly way to access common addresses a DAO uses, making it easier to setup Fixed Payouts in various Aragon apps.
  • Range Voting: Vote on the percentage of an allocation that distinct tasks, projects, or people should receive. Unique forwarding pattern allows for data to be added to EVM scripts within Aragon.
  • Projects: Allow Github issues to be collectively prioritized in addition to applying bulk bounties.
    • Github Integration: Before we can utilize the decentralized git tool, it would be ideal to have an integration with a Github-based bounty system to provide immediate utility to Aragon DAOs.
    • Issue Curation: In the Planning app, token holders or project members will be able to curate / prioritize the top issues that should be developed.
    • Bulk Bounties: Allow bounties to be allocated to issues in a bulk-fashion.
      • Off-Chain Estimates: The bounty estimates are determined off-chain or are input by a single party, yet require an approval vote from the DAO (Forwards to Voting app)
      • On-Chain Estimates: Consensus or range voting contract is utilized for members to collectively estimate the value of task bounties. (Forwards to Consensus app).
  • Consensus: Allow for special voting sessions to be created, where the aim is to reach consensus among the voting session participants.
  • Rewards: Distributes payments to token holders based on the number of tokens one has earned in a specific cycle of time (one-time reward) or based on the total tokens one holds (dividend).

Design Concepts

These are some initial concepts. We expect to refine them and gather community feedback once approved.
