Side Dashboard - Most plugins will have their GUI displayed here.

Main Panel - In the old layout, the main panel was exclusively used for editing files. However, in the updated version, the tabs in the main panel can now accommodate both plugins and files for the IDE to compile.

Terminal - The Terminal is a place where users can see the outcomes of their interactions with the GUI. It is also a space where scripts can be executed.

Home Tab

  • The Home tab is accessible in the main panel and can be closed.

  • Even if it is closed, users can still access it by clicking on the 5ireChain logo at the top of the Icon Panel.

  • The Home tab features links to useful resources such as this document and various project templates to aid users in getting started.

  • To access the settings, click the gear icon located at the bottom of the left-panel menu.
  • The Reset button in the Setting panel will revert all of the settings back to their original defaults.
  • The Generate Contract Metadata is used when deploying with libraries.
  • The Word Wrap setting controls whether the text in the editor will wrap or not.
  • Personal mode can be used when connecting to a local node and is used to temporarily save the passphrase so that it doesn't need to be entered every time. However, since the 5ire IDE will not persist the passphrase, it will be lost if the browser is refreshed.
  • Matomo Analytics is where you can choose whether to allow or disallow the use of Matomo. No personally identifiable information is collected and the reports are publicly available.

Github Access Token

Proof of 5ire

  • To carry out Git operations on Github and create GISTs, it is necessary to input an access token. This token provides specific permissions for your Git commands. Depending on the operation, you may also need to enter your Github username and email address. 5ire IDE does not store your password information outside of your browser's local storage.

The access tokens can be generated and managed here.

IPFS Settings

Proof of 5ire

IPFS settings are necessary to publish your contracts to IPFS using the Solidity Compiler.

If you don't provide any settings here, you will be using the public INFURA node, which may not ensure the persistence of your data.

Other alternatives include:

  • Use your own INFURA IPFS node. This requires a subscription. Learn more
  • Use any external IPFS which doesn’t require any authentification.
  • Using your own local IPFS node that typically operated under http://localhost:5001
