Greetings Secret Agents!
After countless hours of hard work, the Secret Network developer community has officially launched Secret Py. Secret Py is a Secret Software Development Kit (SDK) that consists of a simple python library and toolkit for building software that can interact with the Secret blockchain. Secret Py provides simple abstractions over core data structures, serialization, key management, and API request generation. Development of the Secret PY SDK was inspired by terra.py on Terra.
Python is a loved language in the world of programmers - offering up flexibility and versatility for certain use cases that lower-level programming languages are not as well suited for. As such, Secret Py on Secret Network will allow for developers familiar with python to build and test components of Secret Apps much quicker - potentially pulling in brand new developers to Secret Network. Features of Secret Py are as follows:
- Written in Python, offering extensive support libraries
- Versatile support for key management solutions
- Exposes the Secret Rest API through LCD Client
The Secret Py team had been hard at work developing the python library. Secret Network has a distinct focus and goal in 2022 to foster a thriving developer community. The Secret Py team in particular is excited to grow the set of passionate developers that are interested in using the python solution.
According to the team, the goals for Secret Py in 2022 are as follows:
- Create new modules / utilities that have community use cases: for instance staking module, gov module, etc.
- Maintenance of Secret PY package to stay in sync with Secret-JS and network updates.
- New branches created with new endpoints to account for updates
- Potential Protobuf implementation
With the creation of this new python SDK, the developers are committed to supporting developers that try out these new set of tools and resources. If you are interested in getting involved in the developer community, be sure to join the Secret Network Discord.
The team is also committing to leading "Office Hours" to answer any questions about Secret Py. Any questions around Secret Py should be asked in the newly created discord channel #secret-python channel under the Developer sub-section of the Secret Network discord.
The creation of Secret Py is right in line with the reveal of Shockwave in early January. With more products being funded and built, more creators launching on Secret Network, and more supporters and partners than ever helping to ensure our global growth, the future has never been brighter for Web3 privacy.
If you’re a developer, you can also read through our latest announcements re: [the new $225M Secret Ecosystem Fund], which contain details on how to connect with the SCRT Labs team and the rest of our developer ecosystem. Additionally, check out Secret Network grants and get started building today!
If you’re anyone who is passionate about ensuring Web3 users have the data privacy protections they need and deserve, become a Secret Agent. It is our mission to make sure the decentralized web we’re building is one that truly empowers - and one that is accessible to all.
Thank you for your support - the Shockwave is just starting! 🤫
Onwards and upwards!
