What is Klayr Framework

Klayr Framework is an application framework to create a blockchain application compatible with the Klayr protocol. It provides an application where off-chain and on-chain logic can be extended with user defined plugins and modules.

Architecture Overview

The diagram below provides a high-level overview of the architecture:


The framework consists of 3 main parts, an application, a controller and a node.

The application is an entry point and manages the controller and the node. The node is responsible for blockchain protocol logic using user defined modules, while the controller is responsible for maintaining plugins and managing the interaction between plugins and the application.


$ npm install --save klayr-framework


npm run test:<testType>

testType can be unit|integration|functional

Executing the tests per file:
npm run test:<testType> -- [testPathPattern] [jestCliOptions]


To test the changes in framework you can run example application under examples,

./bin/run start

If you want to test the changes in klayr-sdk/elements to reflect in klayr-sdk/framework, please make sure you run npm run build at klayr-sdk after making any changes in elements library and run the example app above.
