Alchemy, a web3 development platform, has launched a new tool named “create-web3-dapp,” which promises to help developers build web3 applications faster than ever. By using this tool, developers can start their application in just 5 minutes, which is significantly faster than the current average.
According to Elan Halpern and Vitto Rivabella, product leads at Alchemy, the tool was developed due to the constant evolution of web3 technology. They aimed to construct a flexible infrastructure layer that could cater to all the web3 needs of developers.
Alchemy’s new tool is compatible with Alchemy-supported blockchains such as Ethereum, Polygon, Arbitrum, Optimism, and more. Moreover, they plan to incorporate other protocols and software development kits in the future.
The primary objective of Alchemy is to make developers’ lives simpler and make it easier to develop web3 applications. They acknowledge the obstacles that developers encounter when building, testing, and launching an application. The most significant barrier to entry is the end-to-end setup, which is typically lengthy and complicated.
Halpern used the analogy of making pizza to explain the tool. With create-web3-dapp, Alchemy provides developers with the “pizza dough” – a fundamental infrastructure setup that they need to create their dApp. Instead of wasting time on setup, developers can begin working right away.
The tool is a baseline template that can be used to create any application, including DeFi exchanges and swaps, analytic platforms, and NFT marketplaces. Even though it is not intended for non-technical users, the tool expands the opportunities for novice and experienced developers to start a fully-fledged dApp by answering setup questions.
Building web3 dApps is a challenging task that requires a lot of expertise. However, tools like create-web3-dapp will aid in lowering the barrier to entry. It will enable developers to enter the space and create innovative solutions where web3 is the only solution.
