Goals

At the end of this tutorial, you should be able to build a simple XRP wallet that can:

  • Shows updates to the XRP Ledger in real-time.
  • Can view any XRP Ledger account's activity "read-only" including showing how much XRP was delivered by each transaction.
  • Shows how much XRP is set aside for the account's reserve requirement.
  • Can send direct XRP payments, and provides feedback about the intended destination address, including:
    • Displays available balance in your account
    • Verifies that the destination address is valid
    • Validates amount input to ensure it is a valid number and that the account has enough XRP to send
    • Allows addition of the destination tag
