Today we are happy to announce our public release of the Developer Portal. The goal of this portal is to help make steem as easy to use, and developer friendly, as possible. It is our collective resource & hub for developers in the steem ecosystem as they embark on creating the next wave of steem-based tools, sites and applications.
The Steem Developer Portal is a community effort and developers are welcome to submit additions and updates on Github. The Portal is now live at: developers.steem.io
As a new developer to steem we want your experience to be fluid and we want to make it as easy as possible to get started. The Developer Portal includes API documentation and working code examples of functional items to implement within your project.
The tutorials walk developers through the steps of building a working blockchain application from scratch. There is both a text version with sample code, as well as a video that demonstrates the process in action. After completing the tutorials, developers should have the confidence to dive into more complex applications.
The source code for the Dev Portal is open source, and pull requests to update the portal are accepted and encouraged. Developers who would like to make additional improvements to the Dev Portal may submit pull requests to the GitHub repository: https://github.com/steemit/devportal. We would love to grow the Dev Portal into the “one-stop-shop” for all steem development, having all of the information that a steem developer could possibly need at their fingertips in one convenient place.
Growing Our Ecosystem
The innovation that has come from our community has been amazing. Every new application that the community builds to use the blockchain and token in new creative ways adds value to the steem ecosystem. We are very excited to see what you all develop next!
