Developers utilize native Antelope.io software to build applications and work with nodes on the Telos Zero blockchain. This does not apply to EVM DApp developers unless they choose to run a node or build a Telos Zero app.
Platform & Toolchain
The Telos platform is made up of the following components and toolchain:
- Nodeos: The core Telos node daemon that can be configured with plugins and dockers to run a node. This includes block production, dedicated API endpoints, and local development.
- Cleos: CLI to interact with the blockchain and to manage wallets.
- Keosd: the component that securely stores Telos keys in wallets.
- EOSIO.CDT: Toolchain for WebAssembly(Wasm) and a set of tools to facilitate smart contract writing for the Telos Zero blockchain.
