Anchor ⚓ is a framework for Solana's Sealevel runtime providing several convenient developer tools.
- Rust eDSL for writing safe, secure, and high level 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 or Parity's Ink!, then the experience will be familiar. Although the syntax and semantics are targeted at Solana, the high level workflow of writing RPC request handlers, emitting an IDL, and generating clients from IDL is the same.
Presented here are the Rust primitives for building on Solana.
