RChain Rholang SDK (v0.1) Released
Today, the RChain Cooperative’s development team, in conjunction with Pyrofex, released the Rholang Software Developer’s Kit (SDK) version 0.1. This pre-alpha software marks another in a string of milestones along our flight to Mercury.
Along with the SDK, the dev team is excited to announce the launch of RChain’s new developer web site, developer.rchain.coop. This web site contains links to downloadable software releases, documentation, and social media for RChain’s growing development team.
About the SDK
The Rholang SDK includes an initial version of the Rholang compiler along with the Rosette virtual machine written in C++. This release serves to demonstrate the inherent concurrency of Rholang’s design and should allow developers to begin learning how to write truly concurrent applications in Rholang. This SDK currently runs as a local compiler and VM, allowing developers to experiment with the unique Rholang language in advance of other blockchain components becoming available.
Rholang is the smart contracting language for use on the RChain platform. Developers writing dApps for RChain’s highly sustainable, scalable, and secure smart contracting platform will write those dApps in Rholang.
Interested parties can help us test by using the SDK to write code for use cases they are familiar with.
- Detailed documentation on the release can be found in Github.
- In addition to building from GitHub, users may opt to download a Docker image from Docker Hub.
- To get started coding in Rholang, please check out our tutorial.
We invite all community members to test the code, use Rholang and provide feedback and ask questions.
Look for more releases in the coming weeks. On behalf of the developer team, I’d like to thank the entire community for their support. Read more about Chain at http://rchain.coop
