The NPL Runtime Environment provides full functionality to deploy and run NPL smart protocols in your environments.

The NPL Runtime Environment consists of the NPL Operating Engine, the NPL Migrator and the NPL Inspector, and is provided as cloud-native Docker Images, but also supports more traditional deployments. The images are designed to support easy installation and scalable operations.


The NOUMENA Development Kit provides tools to efficiently write, debug and test NPL code, tools to reason about NPL implementations with visualizations, and libraries to integrate nicely with the API of the NPL Operating Engine. The development kit has three main components: the NPL-Dev Plugin, the NPL Sandbox and the Build Tools.


Below is an overview of the components.
