Lisk Announces Alpha Release of its SDK

Lisk, a Blockchain tool and community provider, has released the Alpha version of its SDK (version 2.0.0). The SDK allows developers to build blockchain applications that are compatible with the Lisk Protocol. The SDK is written entirely in JavaScript for ease of access for most developers.

Lisk had previously forecasted this release with a stated set of goals: implement design pattern for protocol change, improve transaction processing efficiency, create transactions element, create transaction pool element, add node/dependency/management/configuration commands. With those objectives met, Lisk released v2.0.0.

While Lisk's JavaScript and sidechain development kit approach to blockchain attempts to minimize developers' required blockchain knowledge to get started, developers need to familiarize themselves with the Lisk framework, elements and commander. With the 2.0.0 release, a few dependencies exist (i.e. NodeJS v10.15.3, PostgreSQL 10+, Redis 5+, and Python 2). Visit the SDK docs on GitHub to learn more.

Lisk has published a number of guides to help developers get started. The building blockchain applications guide describes how to create a blockchain application with the Lisk Platform. In addition, Lisk's example applications give developers an idea of what can be built.
