Clovyr: Decentralized App Tools & Blockchain Network Services?
Clovyr, found online at Clovyr.io, aims to bring modern applications to the blockchain community. Find out what that means today in our review.
What Is Clovyr?
Clovyr is a development framework that aims to offer a complete ecosystem of applications and services to the blockchain community.
“More than just a development framework,” explains the official website, “Clovyr is an ecosystem of applications and services – almost all open source – that empowers teams of all sizes to experiment and iterate more quickly, bring products to market that will run in a cloud or in an on-promises production environment, and enable new features as needs change, reducing potential rework and driving down the cost of innovation.”
In other words, Clovyr seeks to optimize the blockchain development community by introducing modern, usable, helpful apps.
“Clovyr brings the flexibility and ease of use of modern application development to the blockchain domain, for the first time offering a unified way to create, deploy, manage, and extend applications whether they are designed for the public Ethereum network or a private consortium ledger.”
In other words, Clovyr is available for both public networks – like the main Ethereum blockchain – and permissioned networks – like private blockchain implementations.
How Clovyr Decentralized App Tools Work
You can get a sneak peek of how Clovyr works by visiting Clovyr.io. The website has a preview of how their development platform will look when deployed.
The main UI of Clovyr functions like an app store. You browse through the front page to add integrations, configure providers, and manage apps on your private or public blockchain. Clovyr also lets you instantly create a new smart contract from within the platform.
Clovyr maintains the “gardening” theme throughout the platform. You can pick an app “from the garden” for example, to be added to your chain. Or, you can grow an app “in the greenhouse” by combining apps and services to create something useful.
The end result is a development framework that seeks to make life easier for developers across public and private blockchains. Whether you’re seeking to add integrations, combine apps, or configure a network – like the Parity network – you can do everything through Clovyr’s dashboard.
Clovyr Blockchain Network Services Features
Some of Clovyr’s core features for permissioned and public blockchains include:
- Interact with permissioned and enterprise networks, or the public Ethereum and bitcoin ecosystems
- Pin permissioned chains to public chains to increase their immutability
- Explore self-sovereign identity and authentication for your users
- Publish and access zero-knowledge attestations
- Perform data analysis across private data held elsewhere
Clovyr has different features for permissioned and public blockchains. Here are the core features emphasized by the platform:
For Permissioned (Private) Blockchain Networks
Rapid Development, Strategic Integrations: “Test and build with best-in-class components from blockchain startups across the globe,” explains the official website. Clovyr offers simple self-service support as well as white glove support when necessary. Whether you want to manage your own integration from beginning to end or have someone do it for you, Clovyr can accomplish it all.
Community of Fortune 500 Partners: Clovyr has a community of cross-industry Fortune 500 partners from which users can access financial market data, ERP integrations, big data hooks, favorite tools, and more.
Flexible Deployment Options: Clovyr can be deployed over the cloud or on-premises. Users can build networks simply and securely wherever they want. Plus, Clovyr supports Parity, Quorum, or Geth, allowing you to build, deploy, and manage consistently across projects.
One Dashboard: Permissioned blockchain users can access everything from one simple dashboard. That management includes features like per-project management and billing along with the organization-level tools expected by modern businesses. Plus, users can monitor the usage of free tools or pay for premium services and support with no special tokens required.
For Public Networks (Like Ethereum)
Deploy in Minutes: Clovyr can be deployed in minutes. Or, users can take Clovyr’s Kubernetes containers to the infrastructure of their choice.
Mix Foundational Services: Clovyr lets you mash together foundational services securely, including services like user authentication, wallet, and data oracles. After mashing together these services via Clovyr, you can focus on building your own unique vision.
Choose Apps Wisely: Clovyr lets you compare developer apps based on their privacy model, published security audit results, core team size, business model, and more, making it easy to choose the best, most-reputable apps for your unique needs.
Import Libraries: Users can explore and import libraries of elements sourced from community repositories. The library also contains audited contracts built by Clovyr to bridge and enhance services securely.
Extend your Reach: Users can partner with Clovyr to reach a wider market, helping developers spread access to the apps and tools they created.
Monetize or Not: Clovyr lets users choose to monetize – or not monetize – open source code, then provides them with the tools they need to monetize or not.
Scale: Apps in the Clovyr ecosystem can be scaled quickly or combined into new apps, leading to faster and more secure development.
