πŸ’Ž Vertices SDK

πŸ“‘ Specifications

The Vertices SDK provides developers with an easy way for devices to interact with Blockchains.

We are doing our best to achieve those goals:

  • C library, can be included into C++ projects.
  • Can be easily imported into any project
  • Examples provided:
  • Connect to any Algorand API (local or remote provider)
  • Build with CMake and Make
  • Continuous Integration to maintain code quality:
    • Build static library for several targets
    • Unit-Testing

At Vertices Network, we want to free your mind from the hassle of a safe design. Here are other projects we are working on:

  • Secure Element support for future and more secure designs
  • Encrypted Flash for current designs

⚠️ IMPORTANT

  • The current version of the SDK is still very early.
  • It is not advised to use it in a production environment.
  • Use it at your own risk.

🧰 Installation

This repository is intended to be used as an external component to your project such as a submodule.

# clone into a directory
git clone <url> [path]
# clone into a directory including its submodules
git clone --recurse-submodules <url> [path]
# clone as submodule into an optionally specified location
git submodule add <url> [path]

Checkout the documentation to get started.

πŸ”œ We might also provide a Docker container once we have set up CI/CD.

Configuration

A config file provides an easy way to configure the SDK: include/vertices_config.h. The file is fully documented.

Compilation

CMake is currently used to build the library and examples (GNU Make is on the roadmap).

CMake

In order to build the source using CMake in a separate directory (recommended), just enter at the command line:

mkdir build && cd build
cmake ..

# build static library: lib/libvertices.a
make vertices

# build Unix example
make unix_example

Make

πŸ‘Ž Soon.

πŸš€ Getting started

πŸ‘‰ More to come about how to import the package into your build system.

πŸ’‘ Vertices is providing examples with various major SDKs, such as the ESP-IDF for Espressif microcontrollers. You can probably copy-paste our source code into your project πŸ™‚.

Examples

Full documentation is available at docs.vertices.network.

πŸ“ Tests

Make sure you have cpputest installed:

  • Linux - sudo apt-get install cpputest lcov
  • OSX - brew install cpputest lcov

From /tests you will be able to launch the unique command to run all the tests:

make

Checkout the Readme for more information.

πŸ™Œ Contributing
