The easiest way to see the power of the Abridged SDK is through our point-and-click Preview where you can execute method calls on the testnet.
We provide a convenient hosted front-end that can be used to quickly experiment with all the method calls available with the Abridged SDK without having to download anything locally. You can run the Preview from any device with a web browser. All of the SDK code that is executed in the Preview is visually exposed so you can know exactly what is going on.
Preview provides you with the stable state in which our SDK functions properly.
If it's your first time interacting with the Abridged SDK, we recommend going through the quickstart guide below for setting up account contracts to quickly explore the SDK's core functionality (and most used feature!) in 4 easy steps. Click through each header to be guided to the proper methods in the Abridged SDK Preview for each step.
There are 4 main sections of the Preview:
Header section lives at the top where you'll see basic information about your account, balance, and auth key.
Sidebar section is on the left with tabs that correspond to the different method calls available with the Abridged SDK, separated by categories.
Main section takes up most of the Preview, consisting of blocks of Abridged SDK code, parameter inputs, and accompanying buttons to execute the active block of code.
Footer section lives at the bottom where you'll have access to console output data, all events generated by the Abridged SDK, and the current state of the SDK.
The Preview initializes automatically on the Kovan testnet so all you really need to do is to open the Preview!
Click on the Submit button to create your account contract.
Copy your account address from the Preview and enter it in the provided faucet website to acquire some Kovan testnet ETH. This will ensure you have adequate ETH to deploy the account contract in the next step.
Congratulations🎉🎉! You just used the Abridged SDK to explore a seamless Web 3 onboarding flow by creating and deploying your first account contract!
When you integrate the Abridged SDK with this account contract setup flow into your application, you're able to seamlessly onboard your users with a wallet without changing any existing signup behavior or requiring them to download additional software. From the user's perspective, it can look something like this:
