1. Aptos IDE Usage Process

This section provides a detailed explanation of the environment configuration for Aptos IDE, which is essential for developing dApps on the Aptos blockchain.

1. Create a new Aptos Project

Visit ChainIDE and click the "Try Now" button on the front page as shown in the figure below.

Here, you will choose your login method, which includes two options: GitHub and Guest. For this tutorial, select GitHub login, as later on, the use of the Sandbox requires users to log in with GitHub.

Click the "New Project" button.

A pop-up window will appear. On the left side of the pop-up, select "Aptos". Then, select a temple to create a new project.

2. Configure Wallet

Aptos IDE provides support for Petra Wallet.

3. Acquiring test tokens

A faucet is the site/place where you can get test tokens. Use them to make sure your wallet has enough assets to cover the cost of deployment and pay transaction gas.

Switch to Testnet or Devnet in Petra.

Click on the Faucet in the Home page to obtain test tokens.
