# Start Here: Nibiru Dev Docs
Summary on all developer tooling for protocol and smart contract development on Nibiru.
# Networks of Nibiru
Nibiru is as a distributed, peer-to-peer network. In order to engage with this network, whether to read information from the blockchain or to broadcast transactions, one must interface through the endpoints of full nodes that are connected of the network. Please see our Networks of Nibiru page for detailed configuration info regarding Nibiru Chain's mainnet and permanent testnet(s).
# Nibiru Language Clients
Both the TypeScript SDK (
npm) and Python SDK provide
comprehensive clients for interacting with the Nibiru blockchain and broadcasting
transactions programmatically. Each client enables you to:
- Create accounts or restore them from mnemnoncis and private keys
- Query balances, events, and the state of the chain
- Sign and broadcast transactions
You can send multi-message transactions with both NibiJS and
nibiru.py but not the
# NibiJS — Nibiru TypeScript SDK
NibiJS is particularly useful for building web applications in frameworks like Vue and React, and interacting with wallet extensions like Keplr and MetaMask.

# Nibiru Rust SDK
The Nibiru Rust standard library is published as
crates.io (opens new window). This package includes all of the
protobuf types for compatibility with the Nibiru blockchain in addition to
convenient traits and functions make smart contract development on Nibiru much
nibiru-std crate is implemented in the NibiruChain/cw-nibiru GitHub
repository (opens new window), which is a mono-repo
including many production smart contracts and useful packages. Many contracts in
this repo are used in production, and some are included for educational purposes.
# Nibiru Command-Line Interface (CLI)

# Modules of the Nibiru Blockchain
See the Module Reference for comprehensive documentation.
Nibiru's Cosmos-SDK modules define the core logic for Nibi-Perps, Nibi-Swap, and the decentralized oracle network. Nibiru's modules are defined in the
/x subfolder of the protocol's Golang code (e.g. the
perp module is defined in the
