The XRP Ledger (XRPL) is a robust, secure, customizable service. You can create your own interface to try out the capabilities and support your specific business needs.
This quickstart describes a test harness interface you can build to try out the XRP Ledger. The test harness displays multiple accounts, so that you can transfer tokens from one account to the other and see the results in real time. The image below shows the Token Test Harness at the completion of step 4.
That is a lot of fields and buttons, all working together to perform some significant practical tasks. But getting started with the XRP Ledger is not that complicated. When you eat the elephant a bite at a time, none of the tasks are difficult to consume.
Typically, the example functions for interacting with the XRP Ledger involve four steps.
- Connect to the XRP Ledger and instantiate your wallet.
- Make changes to the XRP Ledger using transactions.
- Get the state of accounts and tokens on the XRP Ledger using requests.
- Disconnect from the XRP Ledger.
This quickstart tutorial introduces you to the API used to implement features and explore the capabilities of XRP Ledger. It does not represent all of the capabilities of the API and this example is not intended for production or secure payment use.
In this quickstart, you can:
- Create Accounts and Send XRP
- Create Trust Line and Send Currency.
- Mint and Burn NFTokens.
- Transfer NFTokens.
