1. ChainIDE Introduction
ChainIDE is an open-source cloud-based IDE for creating applications to deploy on different blockchains such as Ethereum, Binance, Hyperledger, etc. It fasts the development cycle and has pre-installed plugins that save users' time and effort. ChainIDE is the world's most commonly used IDE, due to its interactive interface and easy-to-use attributes among other attributes that have attracted developers, practitioners, and researchers from all around the world. It provides a complete and ready-to-use environment for smart contract development as well as provides detailed documentation for learning purposes. ChainIDE is a powerful open-source cloud-based IDE that helps you write smart contracts in different programming languages and for different 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, it is an editor that gets out of your way. The delightfully frictionless edit-build-debug cycle means less time fiddling with your environment, and more time executing your ideas. ChainIDE is a cloud-based multi-chain IDE that can be easily switched to different smart chains with only one click. It supports a multi-chain online IDE development environment. Due to its unmatched features and user-friendly interface, it is convenient for engineers to quickly set up and develop the environment, and realize the deployment and interaction of contracts on the chain, saving developers costs and accelerating blocks. The environment supported by ChainIDE includes Facebook Diem, Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain, AntFinancial OpenChain, FiscoBcos, Hyperledger Fabric, and a total of 10 different public and consortium chains. It has been used by developers in more than 120 countries, and more than 3.5 million contracts have been compiled at the same time. It can support a variety of underlying online compilation, chain deployment, contract interaction, and other functions.

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. With support for 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 one feature that 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 the ChainIDE. The first category is Consortium Blockchains and the second category is Public Blockchains. ChainIDE provides a compatible IDE for each Blockchain.
The Explanation of Consortium Blockchains and Public Blockchains

Consortium Blockchain

The consortium blockchain is a system that is semi-private and has a controlled user group but works across different organizations.

Public Blockchains

Public Blockchains are open to everyone, everyone has the right to join and become a node, every node can record all the transactions. Below are the blockchains that are supported by the ChainIDE.
Public Blockchains Supported by ChainIDE
For learning and testing purposes, public blockchains with the testing environment are suggested to use such as Ethereum, Conflux, DFINITY, and Binance Smart Chain.

ChainIDE Vision

ChainIDE vision is to provide tools, 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 has 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 with the adoption of 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 with 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 the enthusiasm, skill, and capabilities of our global blockchain community. ChainIDE team consists of highly expert, capable, and skilled members that have unique, valuable, and innovative ideas. We value empathy and caring for our planet and our common humanity.
