The Cosmos SDK is a framework for building blockchain applications. Tendermint Core (BFT Consensus) and the Cosmos SDK are written in the Go programming language. Cosmos SDK is used to build Gaia, the implementation of the Cosmos Hub.
WARNING: The Cosmos SDK has mostly stabilized, but we are still making some breaking changes.
Note: Requires Go 1.19+
To learn how the Cosmos SDK works from a high-level perspective, see the Cosmos SDK High-Level Intro.
If you want to get started quickly and learn how to build on top of Cosmos SDK, visit Cosmos SDK Tutorials. You can also fork the tutorial's repository to get started building your own Cosmos SDK application.
For more information, see the Cosmos SDK Documentation.
The Cosmos ecosystem is vast. Awesome Cosmos is a community-curated list of notable frameworks, modules and tools.
The Cosmos Hub application,
gaia, has its own cosmos/gaia repository. Go there to join the Cosmos Hub mainnet and more.
The IBC module for the Cosmos SDK has its own cosmos/ibc-go repository. Go there to build and integrate with the IBC module.
Ignite CLI is the all-in-one platform to build, launch, and maintain any crypto application on a sovereign and secured blockchain. If you are building a new app or a new module, use Ignite CLI to get started and speed up development.
