Algo Builder is the ★ number one ★ trustworthy framework for Algorand dapps, Algorand Standard Assets, Tokens and Smart Contracts. Its main goal is to make Algorand applications development simple, efficient, and scalable.

Available packages:

  • algob: a framework and CLI of the Algo Builder Suite
  • runtime: Light Algorand runtime and TEAL interpreter
  • web: a package to interact with contracts from react app/frontend app

Algo Builder is also a repository of verified smart contract templates that will speedup your dapp design and development process.

Example Code

Check a bare SDK implementaion (it takes approx. 450 LOC). Below snippet demonstrates the same thing using algob in 18x less code:

// Transfer Algo, create "gold" ASA and opt-in

import { executeTransaction, balanceOf } from '@algo-builder/algob';
import { types } from '@algo-builder/web';

async function run (runtimeEnv, deployer) {
  const masterAccount `=` deployer.accountsByName.get('master-account');
  const goldOwner `=` deployer.accountsByName.get('alice');
  const bob `=` deployer.accountsByName.get('bob');

  // transfer ALGO
  await executeTransaction(deployer, {
    type: types.TransactionType.TransferAlgo,
    sign: types.SignType.SecretKey,
    fromAccount: masterAccount,
    toAccountAddr: goldOwner.addr,
    amountMicroAlgos: 5e6, // 5 ALGO
    payFlags: { note: 'funding account' }

  await deployer.deployASA('gold', { creator: goldOwner, totalFee: 1001 });

  await deployer.optInAccountToASA('gold', 'bob', {});
