2. API Docs
You can check Crust Docs website to learn supported APIs for our chain.
At the same time, Crust also released a detailed API documentation to help developers better use tools for development. As shown below, there are several categories, and we welcome developers to find corresponding tools for development.
While there is a slant towards developer tools, providing libraries to allow others to build tools on top of, a collection of applications are made available that allows for interaction with the network from a pure user perspective. If you are a end-user looking to interact with the network, you can interact with Crust/Apps.
