Neo SPCC released the first public version of its NeoFS REST Gateway, providing a new method for developers to interact with NeoFS. The REST Gateway can connect to a NeoFS node to serve as a bridge between dApps and NeoFS. It is designed with web development in mind. Unlike the HTTP Gateway, designed for speed and high loads, the REST Gateway provides a more developer-friendly experience. Another notable advantage of the new gateway is its inclusion of WalletConnect, making it the de facto signing mechanism for web applications that integrate with NeoFS via the REST Gateway.
