Aspiring EOS developers, get ready for action! With WebIDE you can write and deploy your smart contracts on the Jungle testnet or EOS mainnet with ease.
To ensure that developers can quickly and easily enter the ecosystem, ENFs Director of Developer Relations, Nathan James, and his team have been actively building valuable resources like the EOS Developer Documentation, and the EOS Learn and Earn Portal. The new EOS WebIDE will empower developers with an efficient and user-friendly tool for learning and building on EOS with zero setup requirements.
What is a Web IDE & Why Does It Matter?
A Web IDE is an Integrated Development Environment that runs in your browser. It allows you to write, compile, and deploy your smart contract to the blockchain, without ever leaving your browser or installing any software. Currently, new developers face challenges getting up and running on the EOS mainnet quickly, such as the complexities of setting up a local development environment, which can be especially daunting for those new to the Web3 space. The EOS Web IDE aims to streamline this onboarding process, providing developers with the necessary tools to create dApps with a much lower barrier to entry.
EOS Web IDE Features:
The EOS Web IDE boasts impressive features that make it stand out.
- Code highlighting and autocomplete
- Build WebAssembly (WASM) directly from the browser
- Deploy projects to the Jungle or Mainnet effortlessly
- Interact with deployed contracts on Jungle
- Automatic code saving
Beginning a New Era of EOS Development With Web IDE
The EOS ecosystem is evolving rapidly, and the recent launches of EOS EVM 0.5 and Leap 4.0, followed by the announcement of the upcoming Leap 5.0, speaks to the pace of innovation in the EOS ecosystem.
The addition of Web IDE aligns perfectly with the EOS Network Foundation’s goal of fostering an active developer community through offering both financial and non-financial forms of support. Deployment of powerful tools such as Web IDE will allow developers to explore and experiment, while making possible the kind of rapid iteration necessary for EOS to stay at the cutting edge of Web3 innovation.
When you’re ready, take the new EOS Web IDE for a spin!
To connect with the EOS community and fellow builders, newcomers are encouraged to join the EOS Community Discord. The future of EOS development looks promising, and with the EOS Web IDE at their disposal, builders will be able to unlock their potential and create impactful dApps for the EOS ecosystem.
The EOS Network is a 3rd generation blockchain platform powered by the EOS VM, a low-latency, highly performant, and extensible WebAssembly engine for deterministic execution of near feeless transactions; purpose-built for enabling optimal Web3 user and developer experiences. EOS is the flagship blockchain and financial center of the Antelope framework, serving as the driving force behind multi-chain collaboration and public goods funding for tools and infrastructure through the EOS Network Foundation (ENF).
The EOS EVM is an emulation of the Ethereum EVM, housed within an EOS smart contract. It offers feature parity to other EVMs in the space but with unmatched speed, performance and compatibility. EOS EVM connects the EOS ecosystem to the Ethereum ecosystem by allowing developers to deploy a wide array of Solidity-based digital assets and innovative dApps on EOS. Developers can use EOS EVM to take advantage of Ethereum’s battle-tested open source code, tooling, libraries and SDKs, while leveraging the superior performance of EOS.
EOS Network Foundation
The EOS Network Foundation (ENF) was forged through a vision for a prosperous and decentralized future. Through our key stakeholder engagement, community programs, ecosystem funding, and support of an open technology ecosystem, the ENF is transforming Web3. Founded in 2021, the ENF is the hub for EOS Network, a leading open source platform with a suite of stable frameworks, tools, and libraries for blockchain deployments. Together, we are bringing innovations that our community builds and are committed to a stronger future for all.
