Create new asset on Stellar using StellarBurrito

What is StellarBurrito?

StellarBurrito is a package available on npm.

This package’s aim is to simplify the use of stellar-sdk thanks simplified calls to the core library.

This project is open source and opens to PR so if you want to help take a look at github project!

This tutorial works on test-net, for the moment this library isn’t suitable for production use.


Let’s start

First of all, we need to create the project

chinaski@XPS:~/Desktop$ mkdir Medium-CreateNewAsset
chinaski@XPS:~/Desktop$ cd Medium-CreateNewAsset/
chinaski@XPS:~/Desktop/Medium-CreateNewAsset$ touch index.js
chinaski@XPS:~/Desktop/Medium-CreateNewAsset$ npm init

Then install stellarburrito package from npm

chinaski@XPS:~/Desktop/Medium-CreateNewAsset$ npm i stellarburrito --save

Now our project should be initialized properly, let’s create an account!

Create a new keypair and funds it using stellar laboratory if you already have a testnet account just skip this step

One account is enough, it will be your “master” account for creating both issuer and distributor account.

First of all, require stellarburrito package

Now we need to create 2 new accounts, an Issuer for our asset and a Distributor which actually will own tokens.

Just iterate createAccount function of StellarBurrito.

Perfect! We have 2 accounts and now we have all we need!

Now call createAsset function and pass required parameters as shown in the next screen

And that’s it, our code should look like this

Let’s see if it works properly running node index.js in terminal

chinaski@XPS:~/Desktop/Medium-CreateNewAsset$ node index
Asset created

SDZ5TMJHAGLFJTUI3MWNYZRILHXE7TSI3YZH6P5XF7BHELIK3I3XHFCB

It seems legit, for being sure is always better check on an explorer what happens on stellar

And that’s it!
