In the ever-evolving world of blockchain technology, the demand for efficient, scalable, and user-friendly development tools has never been higher. Web3 won’t realize its potential unless we empower devs to do their thing at scale.

Recognizing this need, Polygon Labs is introducing the dApp Launchpad, a Command Line Interface (CLI) tool designed to bridge the gap between complex blockchain protocols and the seamless development of decentralized applications (dApps).

dApp Launchpad is not just a tool; it's a developer's gateway to the Polygon ecosystem, allowing for the rapid initialization of Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM)-compatible dApp projects. From setting up your development environment to deploying your application to production, dApp Launchpad streamlines every step of the development process. 

By leveraging the Launchpad, developers can kickstart their projects with a well-architected foundation, integrating the frontend built on Next.js and smart contracts within a Hardhat environment.

Developers: Focus on building the next great dApp.

Why use dApp Launchpad?

Every ecosystem claims to put devs first, but often miss the mark when it comes to setup, friction, and deployment. dApp Launchpad exists to fill in the gaps in the existing Web3 dev-enablement ecosystem. 

Here’s why the Launchpad is better for building your dApp:

  1. Automated environment setup: Jump straight into coding with automated setup tasks, from configuring environment variables to initiating a local development server.
  2. Seamless integration: Enjoy the seamless integration of the frontend and smart contracts, where changes to your smart contracts automatically update in your dApp without manual intervention.
  3. Streamlined deployment: Deploying your dApp is a simple command away, with tools in place to ensure that your project is production-ready with minimal fuss.

In the end, the Polygon ecosystem is all about giving power back to devs. 

dApp Launchpad empowers developers by offering a structured yet flexible framework that caters to both novices and experienced blockchain professionals. Whether you're building your first dApp or scaling an existing project, the Launchpad provides the tools and resources necessary for success in Web3.

dApp Launchpad will also tie into the broader Polygon community. Developers can help refine the Launchpad, iterating on the tooling, and expanding its capabilities—not only for their own benefit, but to aid the next wave of Web3 devs. 

Developer launchpad to the AggLayer

The AggLayer connects many sovereign chains together, allowing for cross-chain transactions—and cross-chain dApp design.

With dApp Launchpad, developers can build and deploy on one chain but benefit from the users, security, and shared liquidity of the entire aggregated network. That means building a dApp today on Polygon PoS, one of the most adopted chains in the world, or choosing to launch on the performant Polygon zkEVM chain, means developers will tap a future constellation of aggregated blockchains and all the network effects that entails.

Deploying on any aggregated blockchain unlocks flexibility that hasn’t existed in this space before.
