Welcome to the builders section of the Polkadot wiki.
Here you will be able to find the most up-to-date information on the status of the development tools in the Polkadot ecosystem. We are always adding new tools and frameworks as we learn about them so if you are working on something that should be included please reach out to us on Element.
This section of the wiki is divided into the following parts:
- Starter's Guide - High level overview on choosing a parachain, parathread, or smart contract for your project and how to get started.
- Parachain Development Kits - PDKs are toolkits for building parachains and parathreads.
- Smart Contracts - Smart contracts are fragments of custom logic that can be deployed to a live chain.
