DGEX press release:
OFFSPRING IS OPEN SOURCE
Attention all developers!
Offspring is open source and we wan’t you to join us.
Come checkout the source code and screenshots on our github page.
Offspring is a full featured NXT desktop client. Offspring is written in Java and built on the Eclipse 4 platform. Offspring is crossplatform and runs on Windows, Mac and Linux (GTK). We welcome all developers to come and join in the development of Offspring.
Offspring allows you to run your own NXT node and have your own copy of the blockchain. By running Offspring you are actively supporting and strengthening the NXT network. Accounts opened in Offspring are forging by default and display how long until you get to forge the next block.
Lookup any account, transaction or block. See what transactions are in a block and who send them. All accounts, transactions and blocks are clickable in Offspring. You can easily track any transaction with a simple click of the mouse.
Offspring fully supports the Asset Exchange. Since the Asset Exchange is not yet functional on the main network Offspring allows you to select what network to connect to on startup. Simply check the checkbox on the login dialog that asks if you want to connect to the test net. If you do go on the test net Offspring automatically switches to your test wallet so your real accounts are not exposed to the test net.
Offspring stores your NXT keys in an encrypted wallet on your computer. To offer even better security users can select what file Offspring should read your keys from. You can name your wallet file any way you and make it even harder for anyone to find your wallet on your computer.
Easily register or update your aliases. Together with your account we show you all your aliases. It gets even better through the block explorer you can view any accounts aliases. Want to register a new alias? Since Offspring uses the NXT Java API you have instant feedback if an alias is free or not and what it’s pointing to.
You can add as many accounts as you like and easily manage them. Send NXT, receive NXT, send Assets etc.. You can also add accounts you don’t own. Know of some project or special account you want to keep an eye on, then easily add that account to your list of accounts and Offspring will even store that account in your wallet.
Offspring integrates with http://dgex.com where it shows the entire order book of DGEX and the current price of NXT. Offspring also shows your NXT balance as Bitcoins and even in Euros.
What are you waiting for? Come and try Offspring today. Installation is easy. Simply download, unzip and double click the executable (offspring.exe on Windows) and you are good to go.
