When developers are building locally using local-test-validator, they often want to build on top of protocols already live on mainnet-beta. They can load each individual program and required account with CLI flags, but it is tedious and takes a lot of time for each developer. Not only that, but some programs require a level of traditional infrastructure to be working properly, which the developer will also be required to learn just to build locally.
See the RFP outlining a framework that can:
- Load programs from mainnet-beta on start
- Load any account from mainnet-beta on start
- Update an account’s data on start
- Run traditional infrastructure as needed to run the program
Take note the end date (11/15) and be sure to make sure all criteria is met prior to sending in an application. The listed grant amount is a maximum allocation and is issued in USD-equivalent locked SOL and gated behind delivery milestones.
