The Wrap Report – May 2023
Polywrap Mobile, MetaMask iOS Demo, and more!
This month, we're kicking off The Wrap Report, a monthly newsletter about all-things Polywrap – from new tech updates to contributor highlights to adoption progress.
This first issue goes over our highlights from the past quarter:
MetaMask iOS + Safe Wrap Demo
New Wraps and Wrap Implementation Languages
Developer Experience Updates
Contributor Highlight: Emma Sharma, Product Manager
📱 Polywrap has Landed on Mobile!
Last month, we brought Polywrap on mobile for the first time via a Swift client. The client is still a prototype but this milestone brings us closer to its vision of bringing web3 to platforms beyond the web browser. With each new client release, we enable more apps to tap into an ever-growing network of Polywrap wraps.
🦊 MetaMask iOS + Safe Wrap Demo
We've built a demo that showcases multiple wraps interacting seamlessly inside an iOS mobile app.
Swift client – Invoke wraps in iOS apps
Ethers wrap – Interact with Ethereum using a wrap'd version of the popular Ethers.rs library
Safe wrap – Interact with Safe smart contracts to deploy a new Safe, create Safe transactions, sign off-chain signatures and more.
MetaMask plugin – Sign & send transactions to Ethereum using the MetaMask iOS SDK.
Check out a video demo below:
Wraps are implemented in languages that compile to WebAssembly (wasm), a bytecode standard that can run in many environments. Today, the supported languages include AssemblyScript and Rust, with many more to come.
The same wraps can be used across web browsers, mobile, IoT, servers and more. Wraps bring unmatched code reusability to the world of software development! Some wraps available today include:
⚙️ Developer Experience Updates
