Full feature clients should be self-contained application which support most of NXT's network features such as alias sytem, decentralized asset exchange, voting system, arbitrary messages. Ideally, they should be run across platforms or at least support Window or Mac.

Currently NXT client is browser-based NRS (NXT reference software ?) which support basic functions such as send/ receive; block statistics etc. but it is quite awkward to carry asset exchange operation in that interface. So NRS would be phased out gradually when we have some full-feature clients running stable.

This thread will track the progress of works on building full feature clients for NXT. Some may question why we have that many clients in progress at the same time. The answer simply is that: each developers have different ideas of how a NXT client should be and we actually encourage a decentralized approach to building NXT econ-system;
So eventually there should be more than one NXT full feature clients.

Here we are. These are NXT full feature clients in the progress at the moment. You are welcome to contact with the developers to make suggestions or to donate. Let me know if you are planning to make another NXT full- feature clients and I will add it here.

I have asked all the lead developers to drop by here occasionally. So feel free to ask questions they may find time to answer them. Please post something with actual content and don't spam the thread.


openning statement from baimanga 1/9 https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=345619.msg4418563#msg4418563 fund him to make the client possible; contact him if you can contribue.

update from nexern 1/12; can't be sure you will understand what he said but here it is https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=345619.msg4466143#msg4466143

Update: Award announcement


There will be an award of 48380 NXT for the best Open-Source client for NXT. The client has to able to run in Window. This award came from multiple private donors with Bybitcoin as the representative. I will personally send this award to the winner.

I would tentatively set the date for the award on March 1.

UPDATE: I would move the the date for the reward to a later date, tentatively on April 1.

There are 2 main ways to use Nxt DNS without third-party plugins.

1]  Server-side.  A web server analyses Nxt blockchain and replaces nxt-links with corresponding addresses before sending HTML documents to users.
2]  Client-side.  A web browser runs a JS script that connects to Nxt bootstrapping nodes and replaces nxt-links.  This way requires to embed a small script and run it on "onload" event.  The script will do all the work via CORS, JSONP or other techniques.

As a side effect Nxt does not allow to transfer ownership of a domain to other accounts, so cybersquatting is not a problem.

I think after the launch I will create a Google Cloud version of the client to remove such obstacle as necessity to run software locally or care about hosting.

I am chomping at the bit to see these clients come to fruition.  They have great potential to drive adoption of Nxt.

Is there a need for 3 clients? Why don't you all put ur heads together and create 1 badass client? Just curious...

also, how do I know what client to use?

As of 2014-04-09 I no longer post as "Asian Prepper" and will post under my real name "Tai Zen" to eliminate confusion.

Explain above. Bitcoin have at least four main wallets :bitcoin QT; multibit; armory; electrum. So How do you choose one ?
Having one client is a weakness. We need redundancy.

(edit: I posted this in the client rewards thread first - dunno why, was confused -sry)

Hi marcus03 - or any of you NXT client gurus -

I am trying to reconcile the two concepts of regular polling and specific singular user input.
I have an (extremely messy) PyQt4 client that can send queries to my raspi (or whatever node I enter).

To look at the account, I have some lineEdits for server location. account number passphrase, etc, when I enter the info there, I can shoot a single query and get eg the balance in the account back.

This seems 'single poll' to me. Most user input would be 'single poll' (eg sendMoney  Grin once only PLZ!), but also message, etc.

On the other hand, I may want to keep ALL the staus information about the system current. This is where I use 'continous poll'
In my client, I have hooked up a QTimer, that keeps polling the server in 1s intervals. This works nicely, and so far so good.

What I haven't figured out yet: WHICH of the api calls do you use to 'contPoll' the server?  Huh

I am using  'getState', which gives interesting info, but obviously, there is more relevant info to be had.

What are you guys using in your clients? Looking at the screens, there seems to be quite something.

 
Please drop me a few hints - I have listed all API calls I could find below from the wiki. Are any missing?

CHEERS!

1 getAccountId - secretPhrase
2 getAccountId - PublicKey
3 getUnconfirmedTransactionIds
4 getBalance
5 assignAlias
6 getAliasURI
7 getAliasIds
8 listAccountAliases
9 getBlock
10 issueAsset
11 getAssetIds
12 getAsset
13 transferAsset
14 placeBidOrder / placeAskOrder
15 getBidOrderIds / getAskOrderIds
16 getAskOrder / getBidOrder
17 cancelAskOrder / cancelBidOrder
18 getConstants
19 getMyInfo
20 getPeer
21 getPeers
22 getState
23 getTime
24 decodeHallmark
25 markHost
26 decodeToken
27 broadcastTransaction
28 getAccountTransactionIds
29 getTransaction
30 getTransactionBytes
31 sendMoney
-- undocumented in wiki
32 ? getGuaranteedBalance
33 ? sendMessage

SHA256 checksum for nxtapi.dll (v1.3): 2734F788249EF7A1E5836102D66FD97521B0F46E04E95508ABEDDF437468B46D
SHA256 checksum for NXTSolaris.exe (v1.3): 283B18858920FA67BFE8E8CC6EAE5692BE342290FC12D6EA5EF341A67789B288





For more screenshots, please visit: http://nxtsolaris.wordpress.com/


Installation
Simply unzip the archive and run the NXTSolaris.exe file.

If you tried a previous version, simply overwrite all existing files, with the files in the v1.3 zip archive.


Changes for v1.3
-Moved all http API calls and the secret input dialog to a separate open-source dll (source is included together with a a build.bat file)
-Added “Send NXT” function
-Added “Send message” function
-Added “Assign alias” function
-Added alias and message list in personal account management
-Added address book
-Got rid of the ugly button toolbars and switched to a ribbon interface
-Now showing Date/Time of last transaction in the personal account management (also defines the sort order)
-Showing cumulativeDifficulty and totalEffectiveBalance on the status page
-Showing chance to forge in personal account management
-Attachment columns in transactions lists now show decoded plain text messages as a hint
-Bug fix: Public keys in the account lists could get lost
-Fixed logging
-A bunch of other small GUI changes

My TODO list for the next versions in no special order
-Create “new account” function in the API dll (including secure password generator)
-Market data charts
-Show value of NXT in fiat currencies
-Offer a simple and advanced GUI, with the simple GUI targeted at new and casual users
-Orphan cleanup
-Bundle NRS with NXT Solaris (or maybe switch to another implementation if it is available)
-Arbitrary message encryption
-Reed Solomon addresses
-GUI and data retrieval optimization
-Asset exchange support

Donations
I hope you like my client and I’d be extremely happy to see some donations for the future of this project!

It would be great if you could include in the first post summary:

 - Open / closed source status; licensing; pricing model (if not free); tip jar address
 - OS support: Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android, etc; now & planned
 - Key dependencies (Java, .Net, Python, etc)
 - Does it depend on a separate NRS instance, or is it self contained

Are people really thinking they can release a closed source client and charge for it? Good luck with that.
Probably not, but getting these details in the summary will clarify things.
