Overview

Frontier is an API server for the DigitalBits ecosystem. It acts as the interface between digitalbits-core and applications that want to access the DigitalBits network. It allows you to submit transactions to the network, check the status of accounts, subscribe to event streams, etc. See an overview of the DigitalBits ecosystem for details of where Frontier fits in.

Frontier provides a RESTful API to allow client applications to interact with the DigitalBits network. You can communicate with Frontier using cURL or just your web browser. However, if you’re building a client application, you’ll likely want to use a DigitalBits SDK in the language of your client. SDF provides a JavaScript SDK for clients to use to interact with Frontier.

SDF runs a instance of Frontier that is connected to the test net: https://frontier.testnet.digitalbits.io/ and one that is connected to the public DigitalBits network: https://frontier.livenet.digitalbits.io/.
