Developer Updates

Quickstart Guide

We released a new Developer Quickstart guide. It’s the easiest way to get up and running as a developer on Lens. In this guide, we show devs how to build a full-stack web application with Next.js, Tailwind CSS, and Lens Protocol in 15 minutes.

Degrees of Separation Module

The Degrees of Separation module, which has already been implemented in Lenster and Orb, gives users full control over their data and social experience. When posting any user-generated content, you can determine who sees it, comments on it, collects it, or mirrors it. Enforced at the smart contract layer, this new module relies on a decentralized, community-driven approach to enhance the experience for all. We look forward to seeing more applications adopt the Degrees of Separation module in the coming months.

Sandbox Test Modules

We have created a new testnet called Sandbox where you can develop and test your Lens modules. Check out the developer docs below to learn how to create your own modules.

Whitelist Modules

Developers wishing to whitelist a module to the Lens Protocol should provide information and documentation about the Module. Below is a short summary of the relevant requirements and criteria:




Additional questions about the whitelisting process or guidelines should be sent to onchain-request@lens.xyz.
