Neo SPCC targets web developers with the release of its WalletConnect-enabled REST gateway for NeoFS

Neo SPCC has released the first public version of its NeoFS REST Gateway, providing a new method for developers to interact with NeoFS. The REST gateway can connect to a NeoFS node to act as a bridge between dApps and NeoFS.

The NeoFS REST Gateway is designed for web development. Unlike the HTTP gateway, which is designed for speed and heavy loads, the REST gateway provides a more developer-friendly experience. It follows the Open API 2.0 specification and handles data exchange with JSON, improving the readability of requests and responses.

Another notable benefit of the new gateway is its inclusion of WalletConnect, a recent addition to the NeoFS API. This integration will make WalletConnect the de facto signing mechanism for web applications that integrate with NeoFS through the REST gateway.

The team also released a video showcasing the upcoming Panel.NeoFS web application, which allows users to easily manage their NeoFS accounts from a browser.

The demo demonstrates some of the features of the REST Gateway, including creating containers, uploading objects, retrieving objects, and customizing the access list. Each action requiring authorization was signed for using an account loaded into COZ’s WalletConnect test wallet, Aero.
