Status is a mobile first, secure and private messaging client that has chat, browser and wallet functionality. Status aims to create an Ethereum App ecosystem that enables users and developers to interact with DApps as smoothly as possible. Efforts began with mobile apps for iOS and Android, but they recently released a desktop app.

In addition to the apps designed for end users, Status has Embark, a fast, simple and powerful framework to help you develop and deploy Decentralized Applications. It includes features for:

  • Automatic Smart Contract deployment

  • Testing
    • Application and Smart Contract testing.
  • Decentralized app distribution
    • Integration with decentralized storage providers such as IPFS or Swarm.
  • Peer-to-peer messaging
    • Send and receive messages via protocols such as Whisper and Orbit.
  • Developer Environments
    • Switch between application settings using different configurations.
  • CLI Dashboard
    • A dashboard full of useful information in your terminal.
  • Asset Pipeline
    • Concatenate and minify CSS and JS files.

Install it with:
