Environment Prerequisites

1. IDE

For a streamlined development process, we recommend using Visual Studio Code—a powerful and versatile code editor that offers a seamless experience for developers. You can download Visual Studio Code from the official website.

After running the IDE, a new workspace will be created, where you can start developing the framework and code.

2. Framework

Using a Terminal within the IDE workspace, follow these steps to set up your framework of choice.

Node.js: Node.js is an open-source, server-side JavaScript runtime environment that allows developers to execute JavaScript code outside of a web browser. It uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model, making it highly efficient and suitable for building scalable and real-time applications.

Install Node.js on your local machine by following the instructions provided here:

React: React is an open-source JavaScript library for building user interfaces, particularly for creating interactive and dynamic web applications.

With its popularity and strong ecosystem, React has become a widely adopted choice for front-end development, empowering developers to create modern, scalable, and responsive web applications.

3. Wallet Setup

A wallet is a crucial tool within the Ethernity Cloud ecosystem, empowering users to securely store and transfer their data for processing. As a developer, having a Web3 dApp testing wallet is necessary.

The wallet setup process with Metamask is detailed here: Getting started with MetaMask.

Currently, there are two networks for using Ethernity Cloud. Please set up your wallet for the desired network following one of the articles below:
