1. ChainIDE Introduction

ChainIDE is a cloud-based IDE for creating decentralized applications to deploy on blockchains such as Ethereum, BNB Chain, Polygon, Conflux, Nervos, Dfinity, Flow, Aptos, XDC, Astar, etc. It fasts the development cycle and has pre-installed plugins that save users time and effort. It provides a complete and ready-to-use environment for innovative contract development and detailed documentation for learning purposes. ChainIDE is a powerful cloud-based IDE that helps you write smart contracts in different programming languages and deploy them to other blockchains. It has modules for writing, compiling, debugging, testing, deploying a smart contract, and much more.

Why ChainIDE?

ChainIDE combines the simplicity of a source code editor with powerful developer tooling, like IntelliSense code completion and debugging. First and foremost, an editor gets out of your way. The delightfully frictionless edit-build-debug cycle means less fiddling with your environment and more time executing your ideas. ChainIDE is a cloud-based multichain IDE that can easily switch to different smart chains with only one click. It supports a multichain online IDE development environment. The environment supported by ChainIDE includes Ethereum, BNB Chain, Conflux, Internet Computer, Nervos, Polygon, Flow, XDC, Astar, IRISnet, Sui, Aptos, and FISCO BCOS. Developers have used it in more than 120 countries, and more than 3.5 million contracts have been compiled simultaneously.

Can be used with all the operating Systems

ChainIDE supports macOS, Linux, and Windows - so you can hit the ground running, no matter the platform.

Edit, compile, and deploy with ease

At its heart, ChainIDE features a lightning-fast source code editor, perfect for day-to-day use. Support multiple languages such as JavaScript, HTML, CSS, Solidity, etc. ChainIDE helps you be instantly productive with syntax highlighting, bracket-matching, auto-indentation, box selection, snippets, and more. For serious coding, you'll often benefit from tools with more code understanding than just blocks of text. ChainIDE includes built-in support for IntelliSense code completion, rich semantic code understanding and navigation, and code refactoring.

And when the coding gets tough, the tough get debugging. Debugging is often the feature developers miss most in a leaner coding experience, so we made it happen. ChainIDE includes an interactive compiler and interaction module.

Ready, set, and code

Multi blockchain support

ChainIDE offers a wide range of blockchains where you can deploy your smart contracts. There are two types of blockchains IDE provided by ChainIDE. The first category is Consortium Blockchains, and the second is Public Blockchains. ChainIDE provides a compatible IDE for each Blockchain.

ChainIDE Vision

ChainIDE's vision is to provide tools and frameworks, to help developers who wanna develop on blockchains and enrich people with blockchain knowledge. ChainIDE has conducted several webinars, seminars, and lectures in different institutions and universities, such as Peking University, Shanghai Jiaotong University, University of Alberta, etc. In the first quarter of 2021, it successfully delivered an 08-week course on blockchain for African students in collaboration with Binance. From 27-30 April 2021, it organized a webinar in collaboration with the University of Alberta; the great leader and experts from both academia and industry were called to give a speech and share their experiences in the field of blockchain and multimedia data science.

We aspire to improve our world and everyone’s lives by adopting blockchain technologies. We aspire that governments and businesses will be more efficient, effective, and responsive – and that the individual members of society will be the primary beneficiaries of the use of blockchain. We aim to develop and deliver high-quality, user-friendly, cost-effective, and advanced tools, frameworks, and knowledge in the field of blockchain. We value innovation and purposeful disruption. We value our global blockchain community's enthusiasm, skill, and capabilities. ChainIDE team consists of highly expert, capable, and skilled members with unique, valuable, and innovative ideas. We value empathy and caring for our planet and our shared humanity.
