The Oasis Dashboard is our all-new developer portal, giving you a single place to view, configure, and deploy smart contracts.

Top features include:

  • Pre-made smart contracts to help you get started

For inspiration, here’s a simple tutorial of how to make a secret messaging app using a confidential smart contract and deploying it via the Oasis Dashboard.
