This tutorial was written before the creation of the Typescript SDK, and involves running a Nym Client alongside your application processes, instead of relying on the SDK to integrate the Client process into your application logic.
As such, although this tutorial is still a valid way of approaching building on Nym, it is a little less streamlined than it could be.
A more streamlined rewrite of this tutorial will be coming soon.
This tutorial is less about building an immediately useful application, and more about beginning to understand:
- Sending messages through the mixnet to another Nym client
- Receiving messages from the mixnet and handling them
- Anonymous replies with Single Use Reply Blocks (SURBs)
That said, this tutorial will give you the skeleton of an application, onto which you can add more useful functionality.
