So, What is a dApp?

Typically associated with the Ethereum project, a decentralized application, or dApp, is an application that runs on a peer-to-peer network of computers, as opposed to a single computer. The key benefit of this is, users of the network do not depend on a central computer in-order to send and receive information.

Examples

I didn’t find a lot of Vue dApp examples, so as a little side project I build some starter packages with the hope that they can serve as examples, starting points or inspiration for other developers!

All projects include:

  • Vue-cli 3.2.1
  • TypeScript (class style components)
  • End-to-end testing
  • Unit testing
  • Smart contract examples writtin in Solidity

Ethereum

marlowl / vue-truffle-starter-dapp

Vue CLI Starter Dapp; Including TypeScript, Truffle 5 and Web3

Vue Truffle Starter dApp

This project was generated with vue-cli version 3.2.1

An Vue truffle starter dApp. Write, compile & deploy smart contracts for Ethereum.

Sample contract is deployed on the Ropsten testnetwork

Demo

Update a value of a smart contract with your Ethereum wallet address

Project setup

MetaMask and Infura account are both required for this project to work!

MetaMask

I would like to refer to this article for a simple tutorial on how to setup MetaMask and get some free test Ether on your Ropsten account! After that you have your ETH address you need for the .env file

Infura

Infura is a hosted Ethereum node cluster that lets you run your application without requiring them to set up their own Ethereum node or wallet. Register an account here and require your API key you need for the .env file!

Get ganache-cli and truffle running on your environment

npm install -g tronbox

Compile the contract

tronbox compile

Migrate the contract

tronbox migrate --network shasta

Change the current address to your deployed contract address

  let contractInstance = await tronWeb
      .contract()
      .at("Your deployed contract address");

Qtum

Project setup

Most of this setup comes from the Developer's Guide to QTUM

Visit this repo for more and complete guides for developing QTUM dApps

Install Docker & Node

https://www.docker.com/get-started

https://nodejs.org/en/

Download the latest qtumportal image

docker pull hayeah/qtumportal:latest

Deploy a Smart Contract

Start qtumd in regtest mode:

docker run -it --rm \
  --name myapp \
  -v `pwd`:/dapp \
  -p 9899:9899 \
  -p 9888:9888 \
  hayeah/qtumportal

Open a new terminal and enter into the container:

docker exec -it myapp sh

Generate some initial balance:

qcli generate 600

Let's generate an address to act as the owner.

qcli getnewaddress

Let's fund the owner address with 10 QTUM, to pay for gas when we deploy our contract later:

qcli sendtoaddress address_from_previous_command 10

Finally, we'll need to configure the deployment tool solar to use this particular…
