NeoResearch has recently upped its game by seamlessly integrating Gitpod and GitHub Codespaces with NeoCompiler Eco. Now, developers have a smoother ride diving into Neo projects and collaborating effortlessly.
No More Setup Hassles
NeoCompiler Eco, a web-based development environment born in 2018, is NeoResearch’s brainchild. Its mission? Make developer onboarding a breeze by ditching the setup headaches and hardware demands. Over the years, it has evolved, embracing the new N3 platform along the way.
This nifty tool lets users write, compile, deploy, and test smart contracts through a web app. The data is stored on a shared test network, boasting low block times for speedy testing. Plus, it throws in extra perks like data converters.
Embracing the Cloud
Enter the integration with Codespaces and Gitpod, ushering in the era of serverless environments. Now, developers can deploy their private NeoCompiler Eco instances without sacrificing simplicity.
Codespaces and Gitpod, both built on VS Code, offer a seamless development experience. Picture launching a personalized NeoCompiler Eco instance in your browser, complete with a code editor, terminal, and debugger – all tailored for Neo development.
Collaboration Made Easy
Cloud-based solutions aren’t just about solo acts. Gitpod allows sharing workspaces and snapshots, while Codespaces offers Live Share for simultaneous work. These shared NeoCompiler Eco instances can be a game-changer, especially for those dipping their toes into Neo development.
Live and Personal
NeoResearch didn’t just stop at the integration announcement; they walked the talk. In a live demonstration during the Neo APAC hackathon, Igor and Vitor Coehlo, the founders, showcased how to host personalized NeoCompiler Eco instances through GitPod. Imagine that – your own NeoCompiler Eco haven in the vast coding landscape.
What You Need to Get Started
Codespaces? You’ll need a GitHub account. Personal accounts enjoy 120 core hours and 15 GB of storage monthly. GitPod? Also requires a GitHub account, with users starting with 10 free hours a month – a number that can stretch to 60 free hours by linking a LinkedIn account.
