Project Overview 📄

This application is in response to the Alternative javascript console for Polkadot JS API RFP.

Overview

SanDOx is an integrated development environment, that is thought to leverage Polkadot development process by providing ecosystem developers with right and convenient components and tools. Our team – the TRADELINK TECHNOLOGIES OÜ – is focused mostly on crypto trading tools and lately we have been interested in DEX concepts. Meanwhile we are fascinated by the Polkadot Network and see this SanDOx project as a great opportunity to contribute to the DOT ecosystem and show our skills for future projects.

Project Details

Sandox ide pic

SanDOx is an IDE built as a browser app that consist of tool panels (like JetBrains), this type of UX is common to all developers and we suppose it will be intuitive. SanDOx IDE will have a built-in base list of tool panels and there will be an ability to add personal panels in the form of plug-ins (different panels, as well as personalization feature will be developed on different stages of the project). Supposed base list of panels: Project – shows project structure with catalogues and files. Console –displays results of the user’s code, “console” native object methods (log, warn, info, etc.) Network – network choice and connection. A user could switch between Polkadot ecosystem parachains, connection code will be generated automatically. Examples – examples library. Will include different case examples, which could be imported and run. Find – search panel. Allows search of documents in a project and make multi autocorrect. Personal panels – user defined and customized.

Importing libraries from NPM would also be an interesting feature. Meanwhile, the diverse Polkadot ecosystem could significantly change the classic IDE design and our TradeLink team is passionate about decentralizing processes of storing and running code. There is an opportunity for using Crust and Phala networks’ features and we’d like to do an appropriate research on later stages of the project. Till then files and settings storage will be local and user’s code will be run straight in the main thread and/or web workers.

Ecosystem Fit

According to the RFP current polkadot js API console has some limitations, which we offer to overcome by creating the SanDOx IDE.
