Set up the Development Environment
Before you start development, you don't need to know how to set up the required environments. However, you may find it helpful to review the following sections to learn about their purposes and specific requirements.
For instance, to build ink! smart contracts, you will mostly use an ink! Environment with Swanky node. And when you're ready to deploy your application to production, you can learn about setting up your own RPC endpoint.
📄️ Ink! Environment
📄️ Network RPC endpoints
What is RPC Node?
📄️ Test Tokens
A faucet is the site/place where you can get test tokens. Faucets are available for all Shibuya accounts and empty Astar and Shiden accounts. Use them to make sure your wallet has enough assets to cover the cost of deployment and pay transaction gas.
📄️ Light Client node with no RPC
Integrate with the Astar networks using a light client.
📄️ Running Local Network
Now, let's spin up a local network on a standalone node.
This page is intended for developers & builders.
📄️ Chopsticks & E2E Tests
Create parallel realities of our Substrate networks.
📄️ Swanky Dev Container
Together with the swanky-cli tool, you can have the entire environment preinstalled and preconfigured inside a Docker container.
