Developing on Stellar
get started with the API
1. Use the create_keys API call to generate the public/private keys for your Stellar account.
2. Using the address you generated, ask a friend to send you some stellars.
Fortunately, we've provided a friendly robot to help you out:
3. View your account via the account_info API call below or the graphical account viewer. It should contain 1,000,000,000 microstellars.
4. Now you have a test account with some stellars.
Save your keys to make other API calls on the network.
Test Secret Key:
Stellar will be a transformative protocol. Being one of the first to build on the Stellar network will one day feel like having been one of the first to figure out what to do with SMTP.
