Hyperledger Sawtooth SDK
Hyperledger Sawtooth is an enterprise solution for building, deploying, and running distributed ledgers (also called blockchains). It provides an extremely modular and flexible platform for implementing transaction-based updates to shared state between untrusted parties coordinated by consensus algorithms.
The Sawtooth Swift SDK provides a number of useful components that simplify developing Swift applications which interface with the Sawtooth platform.
The Swift SDK's SawtoothSigning module can be imported to a Cocoa/Cocoa Touch project via Carthage, a dependency manager for Cocoa applications.
Install Carthage using these installation instructions.
Create a Cartfile in the same directory where your
In the Cartfile for your project, add:
github "hyperledger/sawtooth-sdk-swift" "master"
After the framework is downloaded and built, it can be found at
- Add the built .framework binaries to the Embedded Binaries and Linked Frameworks and Libraries sections in your Xcode project.
- Generate private/public key pairs
- Sign transactions
- Verify signatures
let context = Secp256k1Context()
let privateKey = context.newRandomPrivateKey()
let signer = Signer(context: context, privateKey: privateKey)
let signature = signer.sign(data: message_bytes)
context.verify(signature: signature, data: message_bytes,
