Learning Sui

Sui: pronounced "sweet" without the "T" - with Transactions (loads of them), things are SWEET indeed. :-)

Welcome to the documentation for the Sui platform. Since Sui is built upon the core Move programming language, you should familiarize yourself with it and use this content to apply the differences. For a summary of these differences, see Sui compared to other blockchains.

For a deep dive into Sui technology, see the Sui Smart Contracts Platform white paper. Find answers to common questions about our roadmap and more in our FAQ.

Important: This site is built from the upstream main branch and therefore will contain updates not yet found in devnet.

Sui CLI client quick start

See the Sui CLI client Quick Start for installation, querying the chain, client setup, sending transfer transactions, and viewing the effects.

End-to-end tutorial

Proceed to the Sui Tutorial for a summary view of setting up your environment, starting a Sui network, gathering accounts and gas, and publishing and playing a game in Sui.

Programming with Objects series

Finish with the detailed Programming with objects tutorial series offering detailed guidance on manipulating Sui objects, from creation and storage through wrapping and using child objects.

Navigate and search this site however you see fit. Here is the order we recommend if you are new to Sui:

  1. Learn about Sui, how Sui Move differs from Core Move, and how Sui works starting in this very section.
  2. Build smart contracts, the Sui client, a Sui fullnode, and more.
  3. Explore prototypes and examples.
  4. Contribute to Sui by joining the community, making enhancements, and learning about Mysten Labs.
  5. Employ the Sui API Reference reference files for the Sui JSON-RPC API.
  6. View the Mysten Labs YouTube channel for introductory videos on technology and partners.
