Building with Rollkit

While Rollkit is a modular framework that aims to be compatible with a wide range of data availability layers, settlement layers, and execution environments, the most supported development environment is building on Celestia as a data availability layer.

Building on Celestia

There are currently 2 ways to build on Celestia:

  1. Using a local development environment with local-celestia-devnet
  2. Using the Arabica or Mocha Celestia testnet



Local development environment

The Rollkit v0.10.5 release is compatible with the local-celestia-devnet v0.11.0 release. This version combination is compatible with celestia-app v1.1.0 and celestia-node v0.11.0.

Arabica devnet and Mocha testnet

The Rollkit v0.10.5 release is compatible with arabica-10 devnet mocha-4 testnet which are running celestia-app v1.1.0 and celestia-node v0.11.0.

Cometbft v0.38.x and Cosmos-SDK v0.50.x

The Rollkit v0.11.0-rc1 release is compatible with Cometbft v0.38.0-rc3 and Cosmos-SDK v0.50.0-rc.0. However, there is no support by ignite for launching a compatible app (e.g. gm app) and Rollkit is working on building a gm app for testing this release (WIP).
