NEO-ONE provides all necessary tooling for a developer to build a functional TypeScript blockchain application in as little as 30 minutes. Editing, compiling, and debugging is all handled via a toolkit that can be launched with as little as one command, or accessed directly from the browser.
The China-based Neo development community NEXT was founded in 2017, following the merger of two independent blockchain project development teams. The community was created as a dApp incubator, seeking to pull more developers into the Neo community and spearhead innovation in the blockchain sector.
NEXT also places heavy focus on education, offering Neo-based blockchain development courses, workshops, and tutorials designed to introduce traditional developers and Chinese students to blockchain technology.
Neo blockchain wallet available as a mobile application and Chrome browser extension. NeoLine supports multiple address management and multiple verification methods. The browser extension features dAPI integration for developers and is open source. The mobile version is available on Android and iOS, and is closed source.
Endorsit is intended to be a decentralized content ecosystem for all types of user-created content including articles, live videos, and web courses, acting as a permanent record of content operations that can be leveraged in numerous ways. The platform aims to be neutral and community-driven, allowing its users to judge the quality of content and subsequent rewards.
Announced at Neo Devcon 2 in 2019, Neow3j is a community-developed project that aims to accommodate Java and Android developers looking to build on the Neo blockchain.
Based on the Web3j SDK, the Neow3j library is lightweight and places a high priority on reliability and user-friendly blockchain integration, removing the need for developers to operate their own nodes in order to interact with the Neo network.
Established in Brazil during 2017, NeoResearch is an open-source team with a strong background in academia and a focus on developing cutting-edge technologies for the Neo blockchain. As core developers of Neo, the co-founders of NeoResearch have made wide ranging contributions to the Neo protocol, in particular to its pioneering consensus mechanism, dBFT.
In addition to core protocol contributions, NeoResearch is responsible for a diverse list of contributions to the ecosystem, creating development tools such as NeoCompiler Eco and interactive educational resources such as NVM-Learn.
Allows developers to code and compile smart contracts via web interface and deploy them to a TestNet without having to install any other development tools. NeoCompiler Eco currently supports C#, Python, Java, and Golang for compiling, deployment and testing.
NeoResearch conducts ongoing scientific research on the optimization and improvement of Neo's dBFT consensus mechanism. Research resulted in the creation of the dBFT 2.0, creation of mathematical programming models to prove the correctness of dBFT in various consensus states, and more. Work is ongoing on dBFT 3.0.
