We are proud to announce the new “etherlime chainlink shape”, a novel developer product that leverages Etherlime and Chainlink to speed up and stabilize the development process around bringing real-world data on-chain. To better understand the benefits of this collaboration, we explore it in more depth below.
Limechain and Etherlime
Limechain is a premier blockchain development and solutions provider with more than 40 completed blockchain projects. We provide DLT and blockchain solutions to clients worldwide, with a focus on development for public and private blockchains, as well as smart contracts. With headquarters in Europe, LimeChain is positioned to enable businesses to accelerate their software development in this growing market.
LiemChain’s main purpose is innovation and giving back to the community. One of these give-back moments brought to life Etherlime – the Ethereum development framework based on ethers.js.
Etherlime has been supported by ECF and ETHPrize and has been used by some of the flagship Ethereum projects.
Etherlime and Chainlink
One of the core features of Etherlime is the development of “shapes”. A shape is a boilerplate project ready to be continued by any developer. Some of the popular shapes are those for React, Angular, Vue and Monoplasma.
Now the power of Etherlime is combined with the awesomeness of Chainlink to create and etherlime Chainlink shape. Through the cli-command for code scaffolding, the etherlime Chainlink shape creates a ready to use dApp with chainlink already integrated into it and all the settings needed to run automatically generated.
The Chainlink shape we’ve developed presents a smart contract that uses the Chainlink ecosystem (a decentralized oracle that can provide external data to smart contracts). It contains a Chainlinked contract that has the ability, for example, to send a request to the CoinMarketCap API for the most recent price of any given coin in any particular market. It also records received data on the blockchain and comes with scripts for local and test net (Ropsten) deployment. The provided tests show examples for local usage of the contract and an already deployed testnet contract that is filled with Link tokens needed to make requests.
George Spasov, our Co-founder & Blockchain Architect, shares how end users are benefiting from integration with Chainlink:
“This integration will significantly speed up the process of creating, testing and deploying new dApps that base their business logic on data provided by the Chainlink system. The developers that prefer Etherlime and ethers.js now have viable options to develop their, fast, stable and scalable dApps that incorporate real-world data and systems.”
Chainlink is a decentralized oracle network that enables smart contracts to securely access off-chain data feeds, web APIs, and traditional bank payments. Chainlink is consistently selected as one of the top blockchain technologies by leading independent research firms such as Gartner. It is well known for providing highly secure and reliable oracles to large enterprises (Google, Oracle, and SWIFT) and leading smart contract development teams.

LimeChain helps enterprises and blockchain startups design, build and scale innovative solutions using Blockchain & Decentralized ledgers technology. Blockchain agnostic, LimeChain focuses on public and private blockchain development, smart contract development to provide complete, user-friendly solutions.
