EZEOS — Getting started with EOS

Technical level: Medium

Retail apps like Scatter, Greymass and Simple EOS

Many tools are being built to help make EOS more accessible, Scatter is a wallet with strong encryption and security features but no voting options and it exists only as a browser extension, Greymass EOS voter is a simple wallet with basic block-producer voting capabilities. Another example would be SIMPLE EOS, this wallet, built by — EOS Rio — in Rio De Janeiro is another one in the class of first wave retail EOS wallets.

There’s a lot of interesting innovations being contributed to the EOS ecosystem. The promise of accessibility that these retail EOS apps offer and the scalability of EOS as a blockchain to build on top of can make just about anyone excited.

For developers interested in EOS

EZEOS is a tool built by Sylvain Cormier from Volentix Labs, it is a bit more technical than just the retail wallets, it is built specifically for developers to get started prototyping and understanding EOSIO. Developers can trigger preloaded Cleos command lines and quickly build scenarios and do this in Python without the need for Javascript.

EZEOS is multi-platform, multi network, easy to use and easy to understand. With a growing list of functionality, it is a great way to make working on EOS easier and more accessible to everyone. Best of all and as expected EZEOS is published on GITHUB: https://bit.ly/2L6Bk5p.

To get started using EZEOS you will need to install EOS, and it’s better if you have a basic understanding of Python. EZEOS currently will run on either MAC or Linux machines.
