1) introducing @seahorse_lang!

seahorse is a framework for developing solana programs in python, built on @anchorlang ⚓️ ❤️

2) the goal of seahorse is to make it easy for python developers to onboard onto the solana ecosystem :D

let's get the next 100m developers on solana!

- compile-time type safety
- fully interoperable with rust
- compatibility with anchor
3) how does it work?

seahorse parses python code to generate an intermediate abstract syntax tree. then it transforms that into rust and lets @anchorlang do some of the heavy lifting!

check out the source code github.com/ameliatastic/s…
4) how do i get started?

read the seahorse docs: seahorse-lang.org

it has a guide on getting started and some basic tutorials 📕
5) what's next for seahorse?

i'm working on the next version (coming soon tm) which will support dynamic mutability and a much larger subset of python syntax.

things like dictionary literals, better cpi support, and user-defined plugins are in the works 👀
6) join our community :)

thanks for reading 😃

7) forgot to add

- seahorse generates anchor IDLs
- outputs rust code to verify builds on apr.dev

all standard anchor tooling and client libraries can be used with seahorse :)

we are a community-built project on @anchorlang!
