When it comes to setting up an integrated development environment (IDE):arrow_upper_right:, programming applications on the Electroneum Smart Chain is similar to programming any other software project. There are many options to choose from, so at the end of the day, pick the IDE or code editor that best suits your preferences. Most likely the best IDE choice for your Electroneum Smart Chain development is the IDE you already use for traditional software development.

Web-based IDEs

If you’re looking to fiddle with code before you set up a local development environment, these web apps are custom-built for Ethereum smart contract development and works with the Electroneum Smart Chain.
