cardano-rest Overview

Cardano REST provides a set of APIs for interacting with on-chain data through JSON over HTTP.

⚠️ These APIs are the currently supported APIs. In future they may be augmented or replaced by a GraphQL API of cardano-graphql, when GraphQL component will be released. These APIs will be supported for some time, even once alternatives become available.

  1. Start cardano-node, cardano-db-sync, postgresql and cardano-rest components using Docker:
