The EOS.IO platform offers two ways to setup your developer platform via a local installation or via a pre-configured Web IDE. I will be making use of the pre-configured Web IDE for ease of setup and not to overload my local machine since this is an experimental setup

Setting up the GitPod Web IDE

Instructions on how to set up the Web IDE are described on the EOS developer website, it is deployed via GitPod and done with a Github or similar platform. The open-source code for the ide can be view on GitHub here

When completed, you will see a page as shown below, you have successfully setup your online IDE and ready to start writing coding

Next, you register for a developer account to use the EOSIO TestNet, to deploy contracts, and do more on the platform.

EOSIO Testnet

To register follow the link, once registered you are granted access to the Testnet.  You will need to verify your email to get started. See images below. Once these steps are completed you are able to setup smart contracts on the EOSIO testnet. We discuss that next

Guide To Creating EOS Smart Contracts

To get started ensure that Nodeos is running and producing blocks, which can be activated via the Web IDE terminal by  running the following command

pkill keosd

If you get an error saying it already initialized then kill the process by running ‘pkill keosd’ and run the above cmd again.

The IDE should like like this
