Things to know

This workshop shows developers how to easily create apps using Decentralized Identity. You'll learn how to set up and run your own identity service using ArcBlock's ABT Node and DID:CONNECT Blocklet, enable the use of a user-controlled identity wallet (ABT Wallet) to let users control their data and deploy a working React app with built-in decentralized identity. First, let's review the following:

Part 2 - setup your DID:CONNECT Blocklet

In this part, you will learn how to install the DID:CONNECT Blocklet on your ABT Node and configure it to run your identity service:

🗺 Install and run DID:CONNECT Blocklet
🔁 Database service is already integrated into the Blocklet
🛒 Verify your DID Auth service on your ABT Node

Part 3 - Create a React App

Now, let's get into the code and create a React App that integrates Decentralized Identity

In this part, you will:

🗺 Create your app and dependency
💸 Configure `DidSessionProvider` and specify `serviceHost` and `appDid`
🛒 Run it!
