Introduction

Lantah is designed to make it easy for developers to issue digital assets and build applications. The goal of these docs is to explain key concepts and offer practical examples so developers can get building on Lantah. Ideally, they answer crucial developer questions, and are thorough enough to guide a project from conception to production.

Like the Lantah codebase, these docs are open source and constantly evolving, so if you can’t find what you’re looking for or have ideas for improvements, please contribute by filing a Github issue or pull request in this repository.

This section outlines some of the basic concepts and channels for developers, so if you’re already familiar with Lantah, you may want to skip ahead to whatever section applies to your product or use case. You can use the left-side menu of the docs to navigate to various sections, and the right-side menu to navigate to different parts of a given page.

Background Reading

If you’re new to Lantah, you may want to start by getting a high-level understanding of the network. A great place to do that is the Learn section of Lantah.org.

  • About explains what Lantah is for, how it works, and who builds on it and why.

  • Capabilities outlines the fundamental things you can do with Lantah, including issue digital assets, trade peer-to-peer, and convert currency as you send it.

  • Protocol explains the basic idea behind blockchain, and shows how Lantah relates to other networks like Bitcoin and Ethereum.

  • Gram explains the origins and use of Lantah's network token — the Gram.

Getting Started

Once you have a high-level understanding of Lantah, you can start building right away, and the subsequent sections of these docs will focus on how to do that. You don’t have to run your own Lantah Core node to develop on Lantah — several organizations including the Lantah Foundation offer public-access API endpoints that allow you to submit transactions and query the ledger — so you can focus on building your product before committing to setting up network infrastructure.

If you are new, you may want to start with the early tutorials to familiarize yourself with some of the building blocks of Lantah. You should also investigate the SDKs designed to make developing in your language of choice easy, and familiarize yourself with the canonical List of Operations, which documents everything you can do with Lantah — along with parameters and error codes — and links to the relevant documentation for key SDKs. Finally, you may want to explore the API Reference documentation, which details every resource, aggregation, and error provided by Gravity, the Lantah API.

Developer Channels

Lantah has an active developer community, and it’s often helpful to interact with other devs who are working on Lantah-based projects. They’re great at answering questions, giving feedback, and sharing information about the best ways to use the network.
