- a Tezos TypeScript library suite made available as a set of npm packages aiming to make building on top of Tezos easier and more enjoyable. https://tezostaquito.io/
We want to introduce a new project for the Tezos Ecosystem; Taquito (Beta). Taquito is a TypeScript library suite that can be used to build dApps or traditional web applications on top of the Tezos blockchain.
By using Taquito in your project, you will get:
- Promises/Callbacks for various events, such as operation confirmations
- Pre-built react components for everyday use cases, which you can use directly or use as inspiration.
- A signer API with some ready to use back-end signers (currently in-memory and TezBridge!)
- A dedicated team who will develop and support this library for the years to come
Developers can build web-apps or dApps, backend services (using node), browser extensions or mobile apps using Taquito. If you’re planning on building a wallet, chain explorer mobile app or something we can’t yet imagine, Taquito might be a good fit for you.

We thrive on critical feedback; please let us know what you find tricky when developing with Taquito.
Thank Yous & Acknowledgements
We would not have been able to undertake this work without the help & support from the LIGO team, specifically Gabriel Alfour, and Jacob Arluck from the Tocqueville Group. The LIGO team funded the initial development of Taquito, for which we are incredibly grateful.
We would also like to thank several individuals for early feedback and requirements; G. Nicholas D’Andrea and Cruz Molina from Truffle, Eowyn Dean, Sarah Fowler, Igor Tkach, Michael Klein, and Andrew Smith. Early-stage critical feedback is incredibly useful, and we thank you for your help.
We would also like to thank the maintainers of all the other libraries in the ecosystem. A rich and diverse offering is beneficial for adoption and growth, and we are always grateful to be peers among so many fantastic individuals, teams and projects.
Community and Taquito
This project belongs to the community, and we will act as stewards and maintainers. We invite you to try it out! Ask questions using the Tezos StackExchange site using the “taquito” tag, or log bugs or feature requests on our GitHub Issue tracker. We welcome contributions to documentation or code. This project is open-source, and it is developed openly.
We are offering a limited number of one hour-long pair programming sessions to get projects started. These sessions help us continually gauge if we are succeeding in providing an empathetic and enjoyable developer experience. Reach out to @jevonearth to enquire about a spot.
