Exploring NEAR Protocol APIs

[ This workshop ] includes several activities:

  • a client-side playground to better understand how near-api-js works
  • a console-based challenge to practice using near-cli to manage keys, create accounts and deploy contracts
  • a monitoring challenge to apply lessons about near-api-js and JSON RPC API into a single interface

Prerequisites

If you're already comfortable with JavaScript, the command line and JSON RPC APIs then this should be a breeze. If you're unfamiliar with the NEAR APIs and have limited or no experience with our network then this workshop will be very helpful. If you have no programming experience then this workshop will be challenging for you -- find someone to pair with so you can stay motivated and productive.
