What is Hyperledger Grid?

Hyperledger Grid is a platform for building supply chain solutions that include distributed ledger components. This project's goal is to speed up the development of modular blockchain-based solutions for cross-industry supply chain problems.

Hyperledger Grid provides a set of libraries, data models, and SDKs that can be used to develop supply chain smart contracts and client interfaces.

Hyperledger Grid is currently in the incubation stage of the Hyperledger product lifecycle. The Hyperledger Grid proposal was accepted in December, 2018.

Where is the source code?

Hyperledger Grid is an open source project. The source code is in several GitHub repositories:

  • hyperledger/grid: Core components such as supply-chain-centric data types and reference implementations of smart contracts
  • hyperledger/grid-contrib: Contributed code that is not yet in the core grid repository, as well as example domain models and reference implementations for smart contracts (also called "transaction families")
  • hyperledger/grid-rfcs: RFCs (requests for comments) for proposed and approved changes to Hyperledger Grid

Where is the documentation?

See Docs for all current Hyperledger Grid documentation.

Note that this project is in incubation (has not been released). The documentation is preliminary and changes often.

How can I ask a question about Hyperledger Grid?
