Helios, Alternative Smart Contract Language for Cardano

Episode by Peter Bui on January 23rd, 2024

Helios is a JavaScript/TypeScript SDK for the Cardano blockchain, designed to facilitate the development of decentralized applications (dApps) on Cardano. It includes a simple smart contract language and covers various aspects necessary for building dApps, such as compiling smart contracts and creating smart contract transactions. The Helios book provides a comprehensive guide, including a complete reference of the language builtins, the Helios API, and the Helios CLI commands, along with articles to assist in becoming a proficient Cardano dApp architect.
