Welcome to Solidity’s documentation!

See also Russian version (русский перевод).

Solidity is a high-level language whose syntax is similar to that of JavaScript and it is designed to compile to code for the Ethereum Virtual Machine. As you will see, it is quite easy to create contracts for voting, crowdfunding, blind auctions, multi-signature wallets and more.

On the next pages, we will first see a simple smart contract written in Solidity followed by the basics about blockchains and the Ethereum Virtual Machine.

The next section will explain several features of Solidity by giving useful example contracts Remember that you can always try out the contracts in your browser!

The last and most extensive section will cover all aspects of Solidity in depth.
