TzStats (Also an indexer)
TzKT (Also an indexer)
Tezos Indexers take information on the blockchain and save it to a database, so complicated queries can be performed much faster.
Conseil: Most advanced query API for Tezos blockchain, developed by Cryptonomics
DipDup: A full-stack framework for building selective Tezos indexers, service workers, and reactive UI components
Offered in no particular order:
In 2021, TZ APAC and TZ India collaborated to launch our Developer Handbook, which equips you with everything needed to get started as a developer on the Tezos blockchain.
Smart Contract Audits
Depending on the applications your team is building, you might need a smart contract audit to address any security issues before launching your application to the public. Companies/platforms that offer smart contract auditing services include:
- Apriorit - A cheaper alternative
- Least Authority - Works with Tezos Foundation and have audited Tezos contracts
- Functori - Smart contract review with detailed reports
Connect with a close-knitted community of like-minded developers and learn from their shared knowledge. Benefit from the experience of others, and get your most crucial questions about blockers, use-cases and more on some of the top curated forums, including:
