Solana Sealevel Framework
Anchor is a framework for Solana's Sealevel runtime providing several convenient developer tools for writing smart contracts.
- Rust eDSL for writing Solana programs
- IDL specification
- TypeScript package for generating clients from IDL
- CLI and workspace management for developing complete applications
If you're familiar with developing in Ethereum's Solidity, Truffle, web3.js, then the experience will be familiar. Although the DSL syntax and semantics are targeted at Solana, the high level flow of writing RPC request handlers, emitting an IDL, and generating clients from IDL is the same.
For a quickstart guide and in depth tutorials, see the anchor book and the older documentation that is being phased out. To jump straight to examples, go here. For the latest Rust and TypeScript API documentation, see docs.rs and the typedoc.
