EDG Developer Update: Feb 6 - Feb 12, 2022

Status updates

  • Depth Hoar has added a new branch delegation-dev with a pull request for a new delegation interface for edgeware.app. Basically what this pull request does is add a new page in the governance menu an example can be found here.
  • Depth Hoar added a step-by-step guide on how to add a new network to Edgeware's implementation for substrate-rosetta-api. Substrate chains share a common framework, Parity Substrate, and this implementation means that with minimal changes, other chains can easily fork and use the Edgeware implementation.
  • When adding a new page to Edgeware's documentation we now have to manually update the summer.md file like this for example.
  • During the Sub0 conference, the Edgeware agency took notes! You can check them out here. You can read through and get the main points and the slides of each presentation. It is not fully completed we will add to it over time as we finish watching the intermediate and advanced presentations.
