Welcome to Kaikas's developer documentation. This documentation is for learning to develop applications using Kaikas.
What is Kaikas
Kaikas is a browser extension that provides secure and usable means to interact with Klaytn network from web sites. In particular, it handles account management and connecting the user to the blockchain.
Kaikas supports Chrome on Windows, Mac, and Linux.
Kaikas allows users to manage accounts and their keys in a variety of ways, while isolating them from the site context. This is a great security improvement over storing the user keys on a single central server, or even in local storage, which can allow for mass account thefts.
Kaikas comes pre-loaded with nice and fast connections to the Klaytn main network and test network. It allows users to get started without synchronizing a full node, while still providing strong security.
Kaikas was forked from MetaMask, an open-source browser extension for Ethereum network. In many places, you will find similarity between Kaikas and Metamask. If you are familiar with MetaMask, you will be able to start using Kaikas in no time.
In addition, a number of upgrades were made to Kaikas so that it can support all the new transaction types and new account system that were introduced to Klaytn. For details regarding new features, please visit Klaytn Docs and check Transactions and Accounts sections.
Also, this document was derived heavily from MetaMask's documentation. In many places text was simply copied and modified.
