BloxBean is a group of opensource projects aimed at providing developer tooling or frameworks for existing blockchain protocols. The key goals of these projects are
- Help on-board non-blockchain developers to the smart contract world via straightforward development tools
- Increase the productivity of smart contract developers by providing development frameworks, tools and libraries.
- Leverage and integrate with existing and familiar development processes instead of introducing drastically different flows i.e. developers can use established processes such as unit and integration testing, CI, CD, etc.
BloxBean started as part of Aion Bounty and Grant program. Through Aion4j suite of tools, it currently supports developer tools for AVM which is Aion’s Java-based smart contract execution engine.
