• The right place to create an Anoncreds library: shared libraries export C-callable API, but the language doesn't matter (C, Rust, Go)
  • Aries-Framework-Go has a Verifiable Credential package that could be made available to other frameworks
  • Building a generic DIDDoc parser

  • Aries-Wallet is probably the right shared library to build first

Note: This call is Recorded. Recordings posted at the bottom of the page.
