Get started with the Vertices SDK in a few easy steps.
The Vertices SDK currently supports the Algorand Blockchain. The following information relates to Algorand's ecosystem.
In this tutorial, we are going to run an example on your machine where Alice sends a payment transaction to Bob.
Here Alice sends 1 Algo to Bob. Alice is the sender, Bob the receiver.
The Vertices SDK is still in beta. This must not be used for production.
Start by downloading the source of the repository along with the submodules:
# clone into current directory including its submodules
git clone --recurse-submodules https://github.com/vertices-network/c-vertices-sdk
We recommend using Conda to isolate your development environment and keep up to date with the dependencies.
brew install libsodium curl cmake python3 ccache
apt-get install curl cmake python3 ccache libsodium-dev
# create 'vertices' environment
conda env create -f utils/environment.yml
# when checking out another commit, you might want
# to make sure you're up to date with dependencies:
conda env update -f utils/environment.yml
# remember to activate your environment
conda activate vertices
# you are ready to code
You can run Vertices on several targets. Get started quickly on your machine or try the example on your ESP32-based board:
